wheel loaders, compactors and motor graders, SDLG has delivered 11 units to
Munck Civil Engineering to help build the Danida Bridges in the West African
With the aim of improving highway infrastructures to encourage economic growth and improve living standards, SDLG has delivered an LG968 wheel loader, two L956F wheel loaders, three G9190 motor graders and five RS8140 compactors to Munck Civil Engineering in Ghana.
The machines are being used for road building, as well as in the construction of seven composite bridges – the Denida Bridges. Work on the project began in October 2018 and is set to finish in October this year. During the construction period so far the machines have proven to be well-suited for the project, due to their versatility and resilience. Two further machines have been purchased since the initial 11, proving their usefulness.
discussion with Felix Ofosu-Kontoh, Sales Director of SMT Ghana, the local SDLG
dealer, shed some light on the effectiveness of the equipment. The machines
have been tropicalised to suit the hot, dusty climate. However, as Felix notes:
“The machines have been very efficient and had minimal downtime since they were
put to work.”
machines were chosen for the project due to their stand-out benefits. “We were
ready to support the client on site, travelling up to 10 hours by road to the
site if necessary, in order to provide service for the client. This is why the
client felt that SDLG was the best choice,” comments Felix.
some manufacturers in the region, SDLG has a strong aftermarket focus, caring
for the products long after the deal has been done. “The expertise and aftersales
that we provide is unique,” says Felix. “We have Volvo-trained technicians who
really understand the SDLG machines and can attend to any model at any time.”
Fast response time is of the essence, establishing SDLG as a company that cares
about its products and clients. “The moment they have an issue we go there to
attend to them,” comments Felix.
SDLG provides reliable, versatile machinery, alongside aftersales that goes
above and beyond usual standards, cementing SDLG as a trustworthy provider of
both construction products and aftermarket care.
