20 • ROCK products • February 2019 IN THE KNOW values and busi- ness styles were closely aligned. Thus, Anaconda Equipment will officially join M c L a n a h a n ' s family of compa- nies, providing mutually beneficial opportunities to both companies. Founded in 2008 by Alistair Forsyth and Martin Quinn, Anaconda Equipment has spent the last decade developing its extensive range of mobile tracked equipment, which is sold through a global dealer network. It also expanded its operations to include a sales and dis- tribution office in Massachusetts. "We looked into growing our line of track equipment in several different ways," said Sean McLanahan, CEO of McLanahan Corp. "When it came down to it, we saw in Anaconda a company that was well established, had great employees and dealers, and had many of the same values and business principles as we do. Adding them to our family of companies seemed like a clear fit." While Anaconda is joining the McLana- han family of companies, it will continue to operate as an independent brand. Its dealer network will remain and con- tinue to support Anaconda customers around the globe. Forsyth will also remain with Anaconda as group presi- dent and managing director, continuing to build the company that he founded a decade ago. "We've had a lot of offers over the years," said Forsyth. "What I saw in McLanahan wasn't a company that wanted to take us over, but a company that could and will help us grow. Anaconda will continue on as the brand we have always been, but we now have the backing of a company that has been in business for 184 years. They share our values and our loyalty to dealers and customers. We couldn't be more excited about this partnership." Both companies will also see equipment line growth, as Anaconda conveyors will be a key part of McLanahan's new line of modular wash systems, and Anaconda will be adding larger size equipment, including track-mounted crushers. FAST FACT Founded in 2008 by Alistair Forsyth and MarƟn Quinn, Anaconda Equipment has spent the last decade devel- oping their extensive range of mobile tracked equipment.
