the benefits of the acquisition

For MAP customers of Legras, the acquisition will mean access to a broader, more extensive choice of loading systems for their exact loading and unloading requirements.

By growing its local presence, at Joloda Hydraroll, we can also guarantee continuity. Spare parts for new and existing Legras MAP Systems now and in the future will be maintained, as will a high level of customer service.

The benefits for our clients remain unchallenged and unrivalled. By working directly with clients, we can get to know their needs and requirements clearly, without working through a third-party distributor.
