On announcing the new dealership for McCloskey equipment, Jeremy Badcock, Director at BL&D Plant Hire & Sales noted: “This is an exciting time to be representing McCloskey International. After a temporary decline, rising prices have reawakened mining. With this favourable environment, foreign direct investments are adding an additional boost across industries. Zambia has substantial mining reserves, which will contribute to our economic growth in the coming years.” BL&D has a diverse portfolio of customers within the private and public sectors, across multiple industries including mining, aggregates, road building and infrastructure, land clearing and agriculture, and material handling and processing. BL&D will also serve these industries in Zimbabwe.

 

Paschal McCloskey, President and CEO, McCloskey International, believes that the McCloskey product range is well suited to the African market, as it is user friendly and rugged. "We established the company in Canada where machines are expected to withstand extreme temperatures in vastly remote areas.” McCloskey noted: “As a result, they have been designed to be reliable, operator friendly and easy to maintain. These are the same features that African-based operations will be looking for in their machinery.”
