Brokk Reaches Milestone – 40 Years of Remote Demolition
Here at Concrete Drilling Services Limited, we pride ourselves on the fact that safety and efficiency are top of our agenda on the construction site. To achieve this, only the best equipment in the world is suitable, and that’s why we’re proud to use the range of remote demolition machines designed by Brokk, who this year celebrate their 40th year anniversary.
Since 1976, the Swedish company have been the leading innovators in the field of remote demolition, with it all stemming from the collaboration between engineers and visionaries seeking to improve the conditions of the dangerous and often inaccessible demolition work sites of the period. They sought higher efficiency and better safety conditions for all. Thus was born the world’s first remote-controlled demolition machine, the Brokk 250.
In their time, Brokk have made a name for themselves as a cornerstone of modern demolition, cement, process, nuclear decommissioning, and underground projects the world over, having delivered over 6,000 machines to over 100 countries. Furthermore, Brokk are characterised by their desire to see their products improve and adapt to new frontiers and requirements. This drive has meant their machines have been a crucial tool to aid in projects around the globe, with Brokk machines helping to clear Ground Zero after 9/11, and to contain the nuclear disaster at the Fukushima nuclear power plant after the tsunami of March 2011.
A Year of Celebration
The manufacturer have planned a year of festivities to mark this milestone in Brokk’s history, which kicked off in January with the announcement of a new model, the Brokk 120 Diesel, the world’s smallest diesel-powered model. Brokk will also be appearing at exhibitions around the world throughout the year, having already graced the likes of Las Vegas and San Francisco in the US, and München in Germany, with events in Sweden, Norway, South Africa, and China rounding out the year.
Brokk are also celebrating the event on their Facebook page, asking for your best photos of you and your Brokk machine. Each month, the best of the bunch will be chosen to feature in a virtual book and the winner will receive a unique Brokk jacket, just for the occasion!
And finally, Brokk are also flying their birthday-flag high this year with a new logo, brandishing the slogan “Original Demolition Power since 1976”. All machines that leave the factory this year will feature the golden logo, so be sure to keep an eye out.
With 40 successful years under their belt and more exciting things coming our way to look forward to, we know Brokk will continue to build on their momentum, reaching ever skywards, and we wish them all the best in the future. Here’s to another 40 years!
