Great Blakenham: BSP appoints distributor in Brazil

Suffolk-based BSP International Foundations has appointed a distributor in Brazil for its BSP-branded piling hammers and related equipment.

HLT Special Equipment, based in Sao Paulo, includes many of Brazil’s major engineering and construction companies among its clients and has already supplied BSP piling hammers to ARG, one of Brazil’s major civil engineering contractors.

BSP, based at Great Blakenham, near Ipswich, is one of the world’s leading manufacturers of hydraulic hammers and compaction equipment. More than 80% of its products are exported and it has representatives in 67 countries.

David Redhead, managing director of BSP, said: “We are delighted that HLT Special Equipment has joined our worldwide dealer network.

“I’m sure present and potential BSP customers in Brazil will gain from the considerable expertise of this strong organisation with a wealth of experience in the construction equipment industry.”
