TA Drilling is a familiar name in the trenchless technology sector and we are delighted to announce the company’s appointment as a distributor for TRACTO UK and sister company, PRIME DRILLING. Under the agreement, TA Drilling is now able to offer the full range of TRACTO GRUNDODRILL rigs from 40 to 280kN (4 to 28t) in mainland UK, and larger PRIME DRILLING rigs from 300 to 6000kN (30-600t) in UK and Ireland.
Established in 2000 TA Drilling has regional offices in Northamptonshire, Northumberland and Ireland, as well as training facilities in Derbyshire and is well known as an authority in HDD and trenchless technology. The company is expanding into Europe and the new range of products both complements the existing product portfolio and offers access to swift parts availability. Phil Benford, Managing Director, is very optimistic about the opportunities presented by the agreement;
“We now have a broader range than we have ever had before to sell to our customers and we have certainly had significant interest; which has already resulted in the sale of a used GRUNDODRILL 18ACS. The build quality of the drills is second to none; they are extremely well manufactured and offer very impressive residual values. We have taken a number of customers to the Bedford HQ and without exception the feedback is very positive. We are expecting to close more deals soon by demonstrating the long-term value, productivity and reliability of these highly durable and sophisticated machines.”
Roger Wahl is Managing Director of TRACTO UK and is looking forward to working with TA Drilling;
“This is a significant step forward for us in distributing our machines. TRACTO fills gaps in the smaller end of the product range with products such as the 4X, the 15XP, 18ACS and 28N+, whilst PRIME DRILLING offers an exceptional range of larger drills including the PD500/600. It’s a hugely positive development for all three parties.”
