YRCO takes over ABEL Mixers Ltd

Youngman Richardson & Co Ltd officially announced the purchase of concrete mixer manufacturer ABEL Mixers Ltd in late 2017

General manager of Youngman Richardson & Co Ltd (YRCO), Ed Richardson, says he is excited about the potential of the product and sees it as a great fit alongside their existing range of equipment.

"The advantages of having control of the complete process from manufacturing right through to distribution opens up great opportunities. It gives us the ability to change the whole marketing landscape and provide packages for our customers that until now weren’t available, Ed says.

"ABEL mixers have been manufactured in New Zealand since 1964. In recent years, the simple concrete mixer has undergone a transformation, and while concrete and mortar are still the main commodities mixed in an ABEL mixer, there are now opportunities for other materials to be mixed, washed, or tumbled in a mixer bowl."

After spending time redeveloping the existing models, YRCO has also released a new range of ABEL Mixers. Buyers now have the option of petrol or electric-powered units, with a choice of either steel or rugged polyethylene bowls. Additionally, there is a trailer-mounted version also available.
