During 2010 Scania substantially expanded its North American service network, which now comprises 120 service points for Scania industrial and marine engines in the United States and Canada.
Scania develops, manufactures and delivers engines to industrial OEMs over the whole world, e.g. for dumpers, material handling and other heavy applications. A substantial part of this equipment operates in North America.
Scania’s strategy is to continually develop and extend its global service network to support operators of equipment powered by Scania. Uptime is crucial for these customers’ business, as well as for their customers, and they can always depend on Scania for support.
During 2010, Scania USA Inc. has achieved the biggest-ever increase in the number of service points and today more than 120 new industrial engine service points have signed up. The locations of the service points have been chosen to provide the best possible geographical coverage.
“We have been working hard and are now ready to provide world-class support in North America,” says
Lars Eklund, Global Service Director, Scania Engines.
