Epiroc has decided to move away from the concrete spraying business and will phase out its concrete spraying line within 2020.
Epiroc develops and manufactures six products within the concrete spraying line in its product companies in Örebro, Nashik and Nanjing. The MEYCO business was acquired in 2013.
"We are constantly reviewing our customer solutions offering to ensure we keep Epiroc strong and agile for the future," says Sarah Hoffman, Vice President Marketing for the Underground division at Epiroc. "This work is a natural part of product life cycle management, required to ensure a healthy, profitable and competitive portfolio. We will phase out the concrete spraying line within 2020 while evaluating other alternatives for this portfolio."
Epiroc will ensure a minimum impact on customers with concrete spraying equipment and will fulfill its obligations under orders on hand, warranty undertakings and the service support thereafter.

A bottleneck of haulers waiting to be loaded is inefficient. Idle machines burn unnecessary fuel, increase maintenance costs and decrease resale values when you're ready to trade them in.
When you pair the new Volvo EC950F crawler excavator and A60H articulated hauler, you can load trucks faster. The EC950F can utilize a 10-yard bucket to fill a 60-ton capacity A60H in only four passes — reducing passes lowers fuel consumption and drastically speeds up cycle times to keep your haulers moving. See how the massive EC950F and A60H improve cycle times and more to boost your profitability.
