Brandt Named Exclusive Canadian Dealer for Sleipner Products
February 16, 2023
We’re now the exclusive Canadian dealer for the complete line of heavy equipment mobilization products from Sleipner Finland Ltd., which are used in the mining, quarrying, and construction industries to improve efficiency and reduce the carbon footprint of operations.
Sleipner is a well-known brand throughout the world, with a presence in more than 50 countries. Their products are proven to deliver travel-time reductions of up to 85% when transporting tracked or wheeled equipment in tonne-class sizes from 30 to 570, including front shovels, large dozers, excavators, wheel loaders, trucks, drills, and more.
What this means for the mining industry is a lower total cost of ownership, higher mechanical availability of equipment, more productivity, and increased effective machinery use.
“By transporting equipment more quickly and easily, you use the equipment better, and are able to do more work and eliminate waste,” says Jim Thompson, Brandt Vice President of Sales—Mining. “The mining industry is always looking for ways to reduce its environmental footprint, and the Sleipner and Brandt partnership will help them do that more effectively.”
Producers will see multiple benefits by enhancing the mobility of their production-class equipment. This includes safety, productivity increases of up to 20%, lower overall operating costs due to reduced fuel and maintenance costs, and a measurable reduction in carbon emissions.
Another exciting development is that Brandt has already sold two Sleipner units. The E550 dollies will be going to a customer in Quebec in March, and the DB130 mining lowbed trailer for off-highway use will be delivered in May to a customer in Ontario. The latter is the first of its kind sold in North America. What makes it even more impressive is that it’s paired with a modified John Deere 460 articulated dump truck, the first time this combination has been used in the world!
“Our customers have told us that they need these innovative products because of the efficiencies that they deliver for mining operations,” says Thompson. “Sleipner is a world-class manufacturer, and we’re proud to add this premium product line to our existing heavy equipment lineup.”
When Sleipner products are used alongside other technology from Brandt, such as John Deere equipment, Topcon machine guidance, and iVolve production management, the level of gains impacting mining operations is unmatched.
“Partnering with Brandt was a natural fit for Sleipner as we expand our frontline presence in the Canadian market,” says Sleipner CEO Jukka Koponen. “Our customers deserve the very best, and Brandt’s long-term mining industry experience, parts and service infrastructure, and reputation for customer support are unmatched.”
A full range of Sleipner products, along with replacement parts and service personnel, will be accessible through our coast-to-coast dealer network—Canada’s most comprehensive.
