Brokk Adds Service, Training Center
By Mike Osenga21 May 2019
Brokk, the manufacturer of remote-controlled demolition machines, has opened its new demonstration and service center in St. Joseph, Mo., expanding its North American coverage and bringing the number of Brokk locations to three.
Brokk said with the acquisition of Aquajet Systems AB in 2016, the company realized there was a need for a centralized location in the Midwest to demonstrate machines from both companies. The 10,000 sq. ft. facility incorporates an outdoor proving ground with various concrete structures, including simulated Department of Transportation materials and steel reinforcement configurations.
In addition to demonstrations, the site offers a complete service complex with a wash bay, workshop and welding station. This allows for more convenient access and quicker turnaround on service. Several Brokk customers have already sent in older machines for refurbishing. The building also houses inventory for both companies, including a Brokk service fleet of over 20 machines, for demonstrations, purchase or lease.
Randy Glidewell and Mike Brott join the Brokk team at the new facility. Glidewell as Brokk fleet service manager, and Brott as service technician.
