Montabert expands its rebuild and distribution facility

Montabert USA has expanded its distribution and rebuild facility to allow in-house repair and remanufacturing for its North American operations.

Prior to the Nashville facility expansion, rebuilds and repairs of Montabert breakers were handled by a partner facility in Tennessee. Relocating the work to the Montabert Distribution and Rebuild Facility provides several benefits to enhance the company’s factory-certified rebuild program.

“We now have the capability of lowering breakers up to 15,000 lbs. into a pit for safe extraction of power cells and to perform inspections and maintenance,” said Amanda Carpenter, Sales Office, Warehouse and Distribution Manager for Montabert USA.”

“We have also added a factory-trained breaker technician who is dedicated to working on Montabert equipment. The in-house rebuild center offers more visibility into scheduling, allowing accuracy of quoting and timely completion of customer rebuilds.”

Montabert began the expansion plan last year working within the existing 4,650 square metre distribution centre. New capabilities for the facility now include a 10-ton crane, the pit with lift table and a hydraulic power unit for breaker testing prior to shipping.

While these new capabilities are now offered onsite, the expanded facility officially opens on Sept. 28.

“With the addition of a rebuild and repair center strategically located within our existing U.S. distribution facility in South Central Illinois, we are now taking our already industry-leading product support capabilities to the next level,” said General Manager Aaron Scarfia. “This expansion will enable us to more efficiently support our customers with preventative maintenance of their Montabert products, protecting their investments into the future.”

Scarfia added current capabilities for the facility include in-house rebuilds of Montabert’s complete line of hydraulic breakers. In the future, the company will also offer rebuilds for Montabert drifters and its Silent Demolition line of equipment. The future expansion plan includes an industrial parts washer, paint booth and a second lift table.
