AS Baltem - a subsidiary of Sumitomo Corporation (Tecnosumit North-East) - was established in 1994 and operates across six locations.

Already the exclusive distributor of Komatsu construction equipment in the region, Baltem’s new deal with McCloskey will now see it provide the manufacturer’s range of mobile crushers, screeners and stackers to construction sector customers in Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania.

Toni Laaksonen, senior vice president, McCloskey International, said: “This market has huge potential, particularly in infrastructure development following the coronavirus pandemic.

“Expected economic expansion, along with projects like Rail Baltica, will stimulate the demand for machinery in these markets.

“These unprecedented times present some unique situations that we anticipate will contribute to the growth of our partnership and success in the marketplace,” he added.

AS Baltem, which employs over 100 people and runs a fleet of 40 service vehicles, provides a full range of construction equipment services, including aftersales support.

Tomasz Jakubik, vice president, sales and marketing, Tecnosumit North-East, said:  “McCloskey’s offer fits perfectly our product portfolio and we’re confident it will help us to complete our offer for the quarry and recycling business.” 

Tomasz added that “with economic stimulus and recovery, we anticipate strong growth across sectors. Bringing McCloskey products to the market at this key time benefits our companies, and our customers.”
