IHC Merwede has recently opened a new yard facility in Broussard, Louisiana, USA. The yard at 206 Cummings Road will operate under the name of Hydro-Ram, Inc.
With this expansion IHC Merwede now has a regional office in North America.
Hydro-Ram, Inc., consisting of IHC Hydrohammer®, IHC Handling Systems and IHC Fundex Equipment – all business units within the IHC Merwede group – will be the main distributor covering the North American piling markets for the oil and gas, offshore wind, construction and coastal and civil industries.
The new site’s facilities include storage for a large rental fleet, maintenance operation and the main strategic spare parts hub for all of IHC Merwede’s pile installation equipment.
With the local presence provided by Hydro-Ram, Inc., from 1 January 2012, Bauer Pileco is no longer representing IHC Merwede in the North American market.
