DDE launches Pentruder cutting equipment in South Africa

26 June 2015

Demolition and Drilling Equipment (DDE), a specialist demolition and drilling equipment company, has been appointed the sole supplier in South Africa of Tractive’s Pentruder range of Concrete Cutting Systems.

Manufactured in Borlange, Sweden, the Pentruder range consists of hydraulic or high-frequency concrete wall saws, core drills and wire saws. Known as the Modular Concrete Cutting System, the equipment offers unmatched flexibility and versatility, with it being possible to use the same power pack, motor, and track system for wall sawing, core drilling or heavy-duty wire sawing.

Although relatively unknown in South African concrete cutting and coring circles, Pentruder equipment has developed a very loyal following amongst top concrete cutting and coring professionals in the US and Europe, where high quality and top performance are paramount. Ninety percent of Pentruder equipment components are produced in-house on state-of-the-art production equipment.

This unique in-house manufacturing process enables almost complete control over quality and standards. Regardless of quality and performance however, DDE realises that, without committed and proper local product support, Pentruder will not gain the same following here as it has in other parts of the world. DDE will therefore be supplying and supporting all Pentruder products from its head office in Jet Park, Johannesburg. The full range of spares, accessories, warranty and technical support will be offered locally to ensure minimal downtime.

DDE are also the current sole distributors of the Brokk range of demolition robots, used extensively in specialised demolition projects worldwide. A Pentruder wall saw in combination with a Brokk demolition robot is a perfect setup for any concrete cutting and coring organisation looking to go about precision concrete demolition in a new, innovative, and more profitable way.

Visit us at the upcoming Totally Concrete Expo where we will have the Pentruder and Brokk combination on display.
