The Brazilian Randon Group produces one of the largest portfolios in the world in the segment of commercial vehicles focused on road, railroad and off-road transports. Wacker Neuson Group develops, manufactures and distributes light and compact equipment worldwide and thanks to its comprehensive portfolio is a global market leader. Wacker Neuson offers innovative products including excavators, wheel loaders, tele wheel loaders, dumpers, vibratory plates, rammers and generators.
Wacker Neuson and Randon now have entered into a cooperation for the manufacture of backhoe loaders. These backhoe loaders will be manufactured in Randon’s factory located in Caxias do Sul, Brazil and sold through Wacker Neuson’s broad dealer network in Latin America. Wacker Neuson is introducing its new backhoe loaders BL744 and BL742 (both in the six to seven tons operating weight class) which have been specifically developed to fit the needs of the Latin American market. Both models offer high performance, efficiency and great maneuverability allowing first class work performance in difficult terrain. Additionally, the machines have a high lifting capacity and breakout force.
“Thanks to our solid market position and strategic focus, we have a great starting point for further sustainable growth in the region especially with compact equipment”, explains Cem Peksaglam, CEO of Wacker Neuson SE. “We provide our customers with reliable and efficient equipment, which allows them to maximize their benefit.

We have here two companies with solid principles and fundamentals to provide a better solution to the market and certainly in this cooperation will be born other opportunities”, said David Randon, CEO of Randon Group and Alexandre Gazzi, COO of Randon OEM Division.
