Sandvik to offer Qmatec rigs

Norwegian drill-rig manufacturer Qmatec Drilling has signed a distributor agreement with Sandvik Construction.

Sandvik to offer Qmatec rigs

This cooperation will cover the sales, service and aftermarket support for Qmatec Rig Solutions initially throughout Sweden, but will also apply to the UK in due course.

The distribution agreement will mean that Sandvik Construction will add a significant range of down-the-hole (DTH) drill rigs to its offering. This includes equipment for water-well drilling, energy drilling and foundation drilling.

The cooperation with Sandvik is seen as an important step for Qmatec Drilling in its ambition to grow internationally and strengthen the position of its Qmatec drill rigs outside of Norway.

Qmatec Drilling took over the production of Nemek drill rigs in 2007, and has since then developed the product and production under the name of Qmatec Rig Solutions.

Sales, service and aftermarket care in Sweden for Sandvik Construction will be provided by the Swedish sales company Sandvik Mining and Construction Sverige.
