Mecalac S.A., headquartered in Annecy-le-Vieux, France, manufactures a wide range of compact excavators and loaders designed for urban, railway and utility construction sites. Founded in 1974, Mecalac has manufacturing facilities in France, Germany, Turkey and now in the U.K., and a network of 200 authorized dealers and service partners in Europe, Africa, Australia and the U.S. The company is driven by a 3-strong strategic foundation based on innovation, excellence and profitable growth. Product design is an evolving process, integrating the best of the many countries and cultures the company spans.
Geographical expansion remains one of the main policy priorities of the Mecalac Group. For more than 4 decades, through its 5 factories, its 7 commercial subsidiaries and a global network of more than 250 dealerships, the Group has been designing, manufacturing and selling construction machines specifically intended for civil and underground engineering in urban environments. In 2016, Mecalac established a presence in the United States with an initial partnership in Massachusetts. Since then, its distribution network in the United States has expanded continuously. Consequently, Mecalac has now moved into the Canadian market with 3 distributors who now handle the promotion, sales and marketing of Mecalac construction machinery.
Watch this: Nova Scotia dealer demos the "Swiss Army Knife of compact equipment" – the Mecalac 6MCR crawler skid-excavator
Saunders Equipment recently demoed the Mecalac 6MCR crawler skid-excavator for customers in Nova Scotia.
Export development is one of the priorities for the French Mecalac Group who have been designing, manufacturing and selling machines dedicated to urban construction sites for more than 40 years. With this as a focus, Mecalac welcomed its dealers from the Americas: Canada, USA, Mexico, Colombia and Chile to its premises in Annecy-le-Vieux from May 16 to 17.
With the growth of urban construction sites, the associated challenges of working in confined space, and concern over environmental impact, Mecalac says that site dumpers have returned to the forefront of European city building sites, even supplanting trucks – that are more polluting, more bulky and less agile – on some sites.

The MCR Crawler Skid-Excavator is revolutionizing how North American contractors are getting the job done
The Mecalac MCR Crawler Skid-Excavator is two high-performance machines in one: a skid steer and an excavator, fortified with a telehandler equipped with a unique versatile boom. It goes 2-3 times faster than any other mini-excavator on the market (6.2 mph); it can rotate 360° while carrying 40% of its own weight and offers a 360° view to its operator. Its boom can lift and load materials to a height up to 16 ft.; it folds to 131 degrees for maximum stability and lifting performance. Its CONNECT quick coupling system allows switching attachments in seconds, and auxiliary hydraulics enable standard hydraulic attachments. Above all, it responds perfectly to the industry trend toward tighter urban spaces with its compact radius and small footprint.
