WAUKESHA, Wis., Feb. 10, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Global undercarriage supplier Berco, now part of thyssenkrupp’s Forged Technology group, will introduce a new specially-designed line of products for the aftermarket. In addition, Berco extends the Platinum Line which was launched in 2019 with new products focused on improving undercarriage life in forestry applications. CONEXPO-CON/AGG 2020 (CENTRAL HALL/Booth 20352) will feature three new Berco products especially designed for the North America market.

“For more than 100 years, Berco has been the world’s leading OEM manufacturer of undercarriage systems and components for the most recognized OEMs in the heavy equipment industry,” said Marcelo do Prado, CEO of Berco of America. “We bring the same passion, craftsmanship and engineering to customers looking to us for replacement parts or working with us on state-of-the-art specialized equipment.”

New Berco Service Line for Aftermarket applications: Perfect balance between value and performance

The undercarriage represents roughly 50 percent of the total cost of ownership for tracked machines. High-quality undercarriage replacement parts can offer significant cost savings. Berco experts, leaders in designing and building tailored undercarriage systems for OEMs, built on their experience to engineer a new line of replacement parts. This new product line, “Berco Service”, meets specific technical requirements for construction machines while meeting Berco’s superior quality standards and offers the best total cost of ownership.

Berco Platinum Line: State of the Art Technology

Launched last year, Berco Platinum Line consists of products using state of the art technology to improve undercarriage lifetime and reduce the cost per hour of operation in severe applications such as mining, large construction and forestry.

Our production and distribution network includes facilities in Wisconsin, Texas, Washington and North Carolina,” says Prado. “We are committed to delivering quickly to our customers across North America and to continuing our growth here.”
