Dressta has appointed Ferronordic Machines as the official distributor of Dressta brand covering the entire nation of Russian Federation. This new partnership adds to Ferronordic Machines’ product offering a full range of bulldozers and pipelayers.
Headquartered in Stalowa Wola, Poland, Dressta has a rich heritage and has grown to become a global manufacturer of crawler dozers & pipelayers, renowned for engineering durable, powerful machines for the toughest applications.
Behind the current dynamism of DRESSTA lays nearly 70-year experience in designing and manufacturing high quality industry leading products. Dressta`s rich heritage includes Cooperation and Licensing Agreements signed with International Harvester Company and Clark Equipment. The cooperations brought to the company a strong manufacturing and technological background.
But what gave to the company its current dynamism and a new vision for the future is its acquisition by LiuGong in 2012, to officially become LiuGong Dressta Machinery.
Since being acquired by LiuGong in 2012, DRESSTA has been steadily building its worldwide presence and reputation. The company focuses on continuous investment to R&D in order to drive innovation and further improvement of its products.
In 2015, DRESSTA extended its network into new markets, such as South American countries like Chile, Ecuador and Argentina; whilst also strengthening its distribution reach in the home market of Europe with the appointment of dealers in the United Kingdom and France. Appointment of Ferronordic Machines in Russia further demonstrates Dressta`s commitment to expand its global footprint.
To support its global network, DRESSTA has a streamlined, efficient and responsive technical service organization within 8 commercial and aftermarket hubs around the globe located in Russia, USA, South Africa, Brazil, United Arab Emirates, Netherlands, Poland and Singapore that provide a full sweep of technical & product support to our customers and distributors.
Throughout its long history, Dressta has a proven track record in the CIS market having delivered around 14.000 units of machinery in Russia and the CIS countries. As the official distributor, Ferronordic Machines will also take over responsibility for the aftermarket support of the existing machinery population of Dressta bulldozers and pipelayers in Russia.
Lars Corneliusson, CEO & President of Ferronordic Machines, commented on the appointment: “Dressta bulldozers are a perfect fit into our existing offering of products from Volvo CE and Terex Trucks. The addition of bulldozers will notably improve our ability to offer full-package solutions to our customers.
