Watkinson Construction Equipment Co., Ltd. is since 2014 the authorized distributor and service provider of “CASE Construction Equipment” from USA and the exclusive distributor of Mobile Compact Crusher “RM” from Austria. From 2014 to 2017, the Mobile Crusher & Screener market demand has grown of 40-50 units per year in Thailand and in 2018, the RM – Mobile Compact Crusher RM 70GO! 2.0 and Screener CS3600/2 was successfully brought by WATKINSON to the Thai market. The RM70GO! 2.0 with CS3600/2, reaches the productivity maximum of 150 tons per hour and allows the separation of 3 different output fractions. The machine weight doesn’t go over 19.5 ton, which verifies its compact size, easy transportation and excellent energy saving with an average fuel consumption of 14-15 liters per hour (depended on the application). Adding to that, the RM70GO! 2.0 has no need of additional electric generator due to the built-in power generator that permits a plug in option to work with CS3600/2 screener. These factors positively affect the constructors’ crushing costs, allowing them to process all kinds of mineral materials such as rubble, concrete, asphalt, glass, coal, natural stone and even reinforced concrete, quickly and efficiently to make high-quality building materials. Within the next 3 years (2018-2020) with RM, WATKINSON has a very ambitious plan of acquiring 25% of market share, meaning to set the number of 10-13 units in the market.

Watkinson is ready to lead the market, leveraging its expertise to continuously deliver the best quality products and professional services to Thai constructors, across 5 branches in Bangkok, Rayong, Udonthani, Chiangmai and Saraburi, and with a plan to open 3 more branches in 2018, at Surat thani, Ubon Ratchathani and Phitsanulok.
