The Brandt Group of Companies has announced that they have been named the exclusive dealer for American Augers and their Trencor subsidiary brand across Canada.

American Augers has been a fixture in the underground utilities and pipeline industry across North America for over 50 years. Adding the full line of American Augers and Trencor products to Brandt's existing Ditch Witch offering improves Canadian support and distribution for a comprehensive lineup of underground construction equipment – the largest in the industry. 

"The addition of these lines is an important step for Brandt and the Canadian drilling industry," says Brandt President and CEO, Shaun Semple. "It means that contractors can now get the biggest, most powerful equipment for any job from one dealer."

Canadian contractors will now have easier access to the largest equipment available, from auger boring machines with up to 1,200,000 lbs of maximum thrust, to industry-leading directional drills with up to 100,000 ft-lbs of maximum torque.

The two companies' shared commitment to maximizing customer uptime has resulted in a 24/7 support network. "With American Augers' and Trencor's premium-quality products and Brandt's exceptional dealership and parts warehouse infrastructure, Canadian contractors can expect better-than-ever uptime to keep them digging, even in the toughest conditions," explains Van Wall, Brandt Tractor's Vice President of Sales.
