Brokk Acquires Hydrodemolition Robot Supplier Aquajet Systems AB

Brokk, a leading manufacturer of remote-controlled demolition machines, recently acquired Aquajet Systems AB, a global supplier of hydrodemolition robots. The acquisition expands the application solutions offered by Brokk in the construction and demolition industry. Aquajet Systems specializes in concrete renovation by using extremely high-pressure water jets to remove concrete without harming the underlying rebar or causing microfracturing. The machines are ideal for a variety of selective demolition applications, including bridge and road repair.

The two brands will share booth B90703 during CONEXPO-CON/AGG.

“We’re pleased to welcome Aquajet Systems into the Brokk family,” said Martin Krupicka, Brokk Group CEO. “This offers us the opportunity to better serve our customers in the concrete demolition and renovation business with a wider breadth of safe, productivity-enhancing technologically advanced solutions.”

The Holsbybrunn, Sweden-based company shares Brokk’s vision for continuous product development and global innovation, and has enjoyed strong upward sales growth over the last several years.

“We admire Brokk’s reputation for manufacturing high-quality, productive equipment for customers around the world,” said Roger Simonsson, Aquajet Systems managing director. “By joining Brokk, we look forward to growing Aquajet Systems’ global sales through their existing distribution channels in several regions, in particular the U.S. market.”

Aquajet Systems was formed in 1988 and manufactures a full line of Aqua Cutter robots designed for a variety of applications, including bridge and road repair, tunnel repair and nuclear power plant rehabilitation and refurbishment. By varying the flow and pressure of water through the specially designed ceramic nozzles, the machines can easily remove areas of loose, deteriorated or even sound concrete to a predetermined depth.

The robots feature diesel or electric power and are compatible with Aquajet Systems’ line of accessories, which include rotolances and circular power heads. The company also manufactures large power packs and mobile water treatment systems.

“Our sales and service team in the U.S. is excited about adding this state-of-the-art hydrodemolition equipment to our product offering. Our existing customer base has already expressed interest in adding Aquajet’s unique capabilities to their contracting services,” said Peter Bigwood, VP Sales & Marketing for Brokk Inc.

Both companies will maintain current management with the acquisition.

  • Campaign to culminate with recognition event at CONEXPO-CON/AGG

CONEXPO-CON/AGG 2014 announces a campaign to raise greater public awareness of the accomplishments of the construction industry in elevating our quality of life. The campaign will publicize the positive benefits of construction projects of all sizes and descriptions across the United States.

CONEXPO-CON/AGG invites contractors and other industry professionals to submit projects for consideration in helping the campaign demonstrate construction’s contributions to quality of life. The campaign will spotlight 50 projects and culminate in a special recognition event at the 2014 show.

Contractors whose projects are selected to be covered will not only have the opportunity to garner publicity for their work; they will be featured at the event. (Each contractor and a guest will receive complimentary show admission plus airline tickets to Las Vegas and two nights in a hotel room.)

“CONEXPO-CON/AGG 2014, as the global gathering place in North America every three years for the construction and construction materials industries, provides an ideal context for the culminating recognition event that will focus on the people of the construction industry and their significant contributions to our modern quality of life,” stated Glen Tellock, CONEXPO-CON/AGG 2014 chair, chairman and CEO of The Manitowoc Company.

Each project selected will be covered by an experienced construction communications professional, with a story, photography, and possibly video from the construction site. The outreach will include a variety of media outlets and stories will also be posted at www.conexpoconagg.com.

Construction projects can be submitted for consideration via the show website. A short and convenient online form asks for a brief project description and contact information. Stories for this effort can arise from all segments of the construction industry (See the show website for more details.) For more information and questions, contact show management’s Rich Jefferson (rjefferson@conexpoconagg.com, tel: 414-298-4122).

CONEXPO-CON/AGG 2014 will be held March 4-8, 2014 at the Las Vegas Convention Center in Las Vegas, USA.
