Stroykomplekt opens 11,500 sq. ft. depot in Yekaterinburg

Stroykomplekt, Russia's highest-volume dealer of JCB mining vehicles, announced recently the opening of its new 11,500 square foot depot in Yekaterinburg.

The new Stroykomplekt dealership cost $9.5 million to design and construct and has a showroom large enough to accommodate 25 industrial vehicles, Vertikal.net reports.

"Almost one in four machines sold in Russia is made by JCB," JCB CEO Alan Blake said, according to Vertikal.net "This success could not have been achieved without excellent dealers, dealers with vision, dealers who are prepared to invest and dealers with ambition. And this is what we have with Stroykomplekt."'

JCB's first vehicle, a backhoe loader, was manufactured in 1979 for use in the Moscow Olympics. Currently there are 70 JCB dealerships throughout Russia.
