Expanded Tigercat distribution in Africa

Kanu Equipment appointed as new west and central African dealer for Tigercat.

Tigercat is pleased to announce the appointment of the Kanu Equipment Group Limited as its authorized dealer for the following countries in west and central Africa in which Kanu Equipment has an existing presence: Equatorial Guinea, Sierra Leone, Liberia, Ivory Coast, Ghana, Cameroon and The Republic of Congo.

Kanu Equipment’s footprint in these geographic regions to date has been largely in the sectors of mining, construction, agriculture and to a lesser degree, forestry. Armed with the comprehensive Tigercat product range, Kanu will now be able to offer a diverse range of purpose built forestry equipment to these markets. Kanu will also offer parts and service support to the existing field population of Tigercat machines already operating in the region. Kanu has fully equipped workshops and maintenance capabilities in all the areas that it operates in.

“We are very excited about representing Tigercat and it is true to our philosophy of representing quality branded products where we can get exceptional support,” states Kanu Equipment CEO, Stephen Smithyman. “This enables us to live to our motto of allowing our customers to ‘Experience the Support’ in some very challenging countries.”

Kanu Equipment Limited is owned by Torre Industrial Holdings which is listed on the Johannesburg Stock Exchange. The Kanu name and logo is based on the analogy of the Hummingbird being a small and resourceful bird that braves the challenges that the dark forest presents and so together with the strong animal theme of the Tigercat name, it is without doubt that the combined efforts will lead to good things for both companies.
