Häggblom to be agent for Expander pivot pins – and to open new plant
15 April 2016
Ab A. Häggblom Oy and Expander System Sweden have signed an agreement to transfer the Finnish retail operations of Expander pivot pins to Häggblom. Expander pivot pins are widely used and highly-valued in the excavation and forestry machine sectors.
"For years, Expander pivot pins have been the choice solution for repairing pivot lug holes in various machines. We are really happy to have secured the representation of the market leader's best products, as this allows us to serve our customers even better with a wider range of products," says Jukka Karhula, Häggblom's Managing Director.
New plant in Juvanmalmi, Espoo
While launching collaborative operations with a new partner, Häggblom is also investing in the development of its customer services in southern Finland.
"Our head office is in Kokkola but we'll open another site in Juvanmalmi, Espoo in April. From now on, the most commonly-required wear parts for undercarriages and buckets - as well as an extensive range of spare parts for Volvo and Caterpillar earth movers - will be available at Häggblom's warehouse in Juvanmalmi. We also have a sales representative based in eastern Finland. This means that we can guarantee fast and personal service for all our customers. If necessary, our sales representative can visit the customer's site to establish the best way to solve their problem," Karhula explains.
Expander – safe and reliable
Expander pivot pins are well-known in the earth moving and forestry machine business. They have been in production since the 1950s, so their reliability and functionality has been tested and proven over the decades.
When earth movers and forestry machines get older, their pivot connections typically become slack. The conventional repair method is slow and expensive: the machine is brought for servicing, the lugs are replaced or the hole is filled and enlarged. Expander pivot pins save time and money. The old and worn pivot pin is replaced by an Expander pin, which has a structure that solves the problem permanently; it also comes with a 10-year warranty. The Expander pivot pin is placed directly into the original hole, and its sleeves expand to fill the gap completely.
"Every Expander pivot pin is produced to fit the customer's machine precisely. The factory already has measurements for more than 50,000 pivot pins. If the model required for the customer's machine cannot be found in our drawings, we'll measure the machine. Expander is famous for its quick service. In most cases, the new pivot pin is sent out to the customer on the same day or at least within a couple of days," Karhula says and underlines the fact that Häggblom staff are well familiar with Expander pivot pins.
"It's great to represent a product that we have used and that we trust."
