NASHVILLE, Ill. — On Thursday, Sept. 28, Montabert USA celebrated the launch of its new in-house repair and remanufacturing capabilities at the company’s North American Operations facility in Nashville, Illinois, about 50 miles east of St Louis. Attendees included all Montabert USA sales and service personnel, as well as representatives from Montabert’s home office in Saint Priest, France, and members of the industry trade press and local media.

The expanded Montabert Distribution and Service Center comprises 50,000 square feet of space that is used not only for work on Montabert’s rhydraulic breakers, but also for distribution of Montabert’s complete product line, centralized parts warehousing and shipping throughout North America. Prior to the Nashville facility expansion, rebuilds and repairs of Montabert breakers in the U.S. were handled at a partner facility in Tennessee. Relocating this work to the North American Operations location provides numerous benefits that enhance the company’s factory-certified Rebuild Program and improve turnaround times for customer repairs.

Through the Montabert Rebuild Program, the company purchases used breakers in North America and remanufactures them for resale. The program offers competitive labor rates and parts pricing, with 10-day turnaround for remanufactured breakers. Rebuilds are performed by qualified, factory-trained mechanics. The finished breakers are tested to 100% functionality and come with a Montabert factory warranty.

In order to accommodate the new capabilities, Montabert worked closely with the building owner to add a pit into which breakers up to 15,000 pounds can be lowered for safe extraction of power cells and to perform inspections and maintenance.

Current capabilities for the facility include in-house rebuilds of Montabert’s complete line of hydraulic breakers. The company plans to also offer rebuilds for Montabert drifters and its line of Silent Demolition equipment.

Current rebuild and repair capabilities for the facility include:

  • 10-ton crane
  • Pit with lift table, ensuring safety and efficient working conditions
  • Hydraulic power unit for breaker testing prior to shipping
