Ralf Majchrzak, Business Development Manager for Chicago Pneumatic in Scandinavia and the Baltics, commented:With these strategic appointments, Chicago Pneumatic has further strenghtened its burgeoning presence in Estonia and Eastern Europe as a whole. Both Alas Kuul and Melker Baltik have a real depth of experience and knowledge of working with construction companies in Estonia, which we fully expect will boost awareness and sales of Chicago Pneumatic’s durable and reliable construction equipment solutions in the country.

Estblished in 1993, Alas Kuul is a leading distributor of industrial air compressors in Estonia. The company, which operates 7 sales offices throughout the country, has access to Chicago Pneumatic’s full European range of portable air compressors and handheld pneumatic equipment, including paving breakers, hammers, rivet busters, scrabblers and rock drills. In addition to sales, Alas Kuul operates a large maintenance and service team, and is able to provide dedicated after-sales support to its customers.

Commenting on the company’s appointment as a Chicago Pneumatic distributor, Margus Veeorg, Compressed Air Sales Manager at Alas Kuul said:With demand for portable air on the rise, we jumped at the chance to partner with Chicago Pneumatic due to its established reputation in mainland Europe as a supplier of high quality, robust and efficient portable compressors and air tools.

In order to further expand its presence in Estonia, Chicago Pneumatic has also recently appointed Melker Baltik as an authorised distributor of its range of handheld compaction equipment and handheld hydraulic tools. Founded in 2011 by a highly experienced team of construction professionals, the company is a leading supplier of machinery and equipment to Estonia’s road construction and maintenance industries. Headquartered in Tallinn, the company also operates a fully equipped workshop and two mobile service vans to support customers with their maintenance needs.

Aleksander Nõomaa, Managing Director of Melker Baltik explained the benefits customers can expect from the company’s partnership with Chicago Pneumatic:The excellent availability and quality of Chicago Pneumatic’s products, and additional after-sales support and parts services, mean we are now able to offer a bigger and better choice of construction equipment to our customers. As a relatively new name in Estonia, we see great opportunities to help the Chicago Pneumatic brand grow in the country.
