Volvo Construction Equipment, with North American headquarters in Shippensburg, Pennsylvania, and Cleveland-based Allied Construction Products LLC have entered into an agreement for the sale and support of Allied hydraulic breakers at Volvo dealer locations.

Volvo, in a news release, says the partnership has been created “to offer customers more options in breakers and other aftermarket attachments in North America, and results in the addition of 40 models to Volvo dealer product offerings, including the Allied flagship Rammer and Hy-Ram hydraulic breakers and Ho-Pac and Skid-Pac compactor/drivers.”

The company adds that “comparable Volvo-branded products in North America will be discontinued with this new partnership.”

“We understand that the availability of a broad range of high-quality breakers is important to our customers,” says Mark Mohn, director of attachments for Volvo in the Americas Sales Region.

“Instead of competing with industry leaders like Allied, who exclusively sell breakers, we can work together to better serve our customers. This partnership will help our dealers strengthen their ability to serve customers with an expanded range of products and best-in-class support from the breaker specialists at Allied.”

Allied’s product line includes 33 boom-mounted hydraulic hammer models and seven boom-mounted vibratory compactors/drivers.

Volvo dealers will order and receive breakers and relevant parts directly from Allied. The company also will provide service and parts and warranty support and will support the existing population of Volvo-branded hammers in the field.

“We are pleased to offer Volvo and its dealers the market-leading products and support from Allied,” says Philip M. Paranic, president and CEO of the Cleveland-based firm. “Rest assured this is all we do — we pay attention.”
