BOCK Inc. Now The Ammann Dealer For The Quebec Province And Ottawa Region

MONTREAL, QC – Peter Price, Area Sales Manager for Ammann Canada, is pleased to announce that BOCK has joined the growing network of Canadian Ammann distributors.

The Province of Quebec-based company will represent the full line of Ammann compaction and paving equipment in its four branches in Montreal, South Shore of Montreal, Sherbrooke and Quebec City.

“BOCK will pioneer the global Ammann product line in the four corners of the Province of Quebec, as well as parts of Eastern Ontario and the Ottawa region,” says Peter Price. “It is a new and exciting market for Ammann Canada.”

Founded in 1957, BOCK is the only CASE Construction dealer located in Quebec and has earned a well deserved reputation as a leader in sales and product support of industrial equipment. The company services a broad customer base including clients in road construction, excavation, landscape, demolition, snow removal, municipal works, utilities and landfill. In addition to CASE Construction, the company represents Link-Belt and Takeuchi products.

Raphael Bock, Manager of Business Development, says adding the complementary line of quality european Ammann compaction and asphalt rollers to BOCK’s existing product lines gives the company more flexibility to meet their customers’ needs.

“The Ammann line-up is complementary to our full-line of CASE products so we can now offer one-stop shopping to our customers in the earthmoving, compaction and paving sectors,” says Bock.

Going forward, Bock sees considerable opportunity for the Ammann brand in Quebec. “Quebec’s harsh winters continually create a significant backlog of infrastructure projects like roads, bridges and overpasses which has in turn created a huge demand for quality road building equipment to get the work done,” says Bock.  “We’re convinced that our new line of Ammann products will go far in meeting that need.”

BOCK will officially launch its Ammann line during the annual Journée Expo-Bitume, Quebec’s annual major road building show being held in St-Hyacinthe on March 31, 2011.

“The Expo-Bitume provides us with the ideal venue to introduce our new Ammann line,” says Bock.  “Ammann compaction equipment will be displayed at the show and we’ll be inviting customers back to our branches for presentations and demonstrations”.

Peter Price and Raphael Bock agree that Ammann and BOCK are a great fit for each other. “Both companies are successful, well-established, family-owned businesses.  We offer quality products and they bring a solid reputation for sales and after-sales service to the relationship,” says Price.
