Aramine is presenting a wider range of equipment to its underground construction operators and Normet is keen to offer its brand of equipment and products to new underground customers in this emerging territory. "The partnership strengthens our offering to the underground construction markets in these countries and augments our value proposition in the region," said Janne Lehto, Region Vice President for Normet in Europe, Middle East and Africa.

This is not the first time the two companies have collaborated. Aramine previously represented the brand and helped establish a Normet presence in the territory. “When the opportunity presented itself to rekindle a relationship with a world-class supplier of underground utility equipment, we thought immediately of Normet,” said Marc Melkonian, Co-President of Aramine.

“Through discussions, it became apparent that this is a good three-way fit, with Aramine and Normet and our mutual customers in French Africa,” said Bruno Chivee, Normet’s territory Sales Manager. A training program of Normet equipment for Aramine technical teams is scheduled.
