On its stand of over 900m2, HCME is following through on its message: ‘Partner to Accelerate Change’, by highlighting collaborations with some of the industry’s technology leaders, including KTEG, Xwatch, Leica Geosystems, Trimble and ShareMat.

Representatives from HCME Office France are attending the show, along with delegates from prominent regional Hitachi dealers, including Hitachi Construction Machinery France (HCMF), Teramat, Prowimat, and ESMTP.

HCME President Francesco Quaranta said, “Following some changes within our dealer network last year, Intermat provides us with the perfect platform to support our partners and showcase our latest products and solutions together.”

Cutting edge machines

Among the machines on display on the Hitachi stand will be the ZX390TC-7 special application excavator and ZE135 electric excavator, developed in collaboration with KTEG.

The ZX225USLC-7 medium excavator and ZX135W-7 wheeled excavator will feature factory-fitted machine control and safety systems from Xwatch and Leica Geosystems, and Trimble, respectively.

On the subject of alliances, Hitachi’s collaboration with Xwatch Safety Solutions comes as the company has announced its acquisition by tech giant Hexagon.

Dan Leaney, Director of Sales and Operations at Xwatch Safety Solutions said, “Joining Hexagon represents a transformative opportunity for us to push the boundaries of safety technology in the construction industry.

“It allows us to leverage Hexagon’s global expertise and reach, bringing our cutting-edge safety solutions to a wider audience and significantly impacting worker safety worldwide.”
