Bartell Global announces the acquisition of CONTEC North America. This expansion offers incredible opportunities for Bartell Global to better serve current and prospective customers. By aligning the companies' values of integrity, ownership, and innovation, and maintaining priority of ongoing customer service, the addition of CONTEC North America enables Bartell to offer a greater variety of equipment to the construction, demolition, site and surface preparation Industries.

“CONTEC North America adds another pioneering, high quality brand to our line of innovative products, expanding opportunities to offer our customers an ever growing range of Concrete equipment,” said Bartell Global’s president, Richard Stanley.

In addition, Richard Tordoff from CONTEC North America stated, “The positive changes brought about by CONTEC North America becoming part of the Bartell Global Family are overwhelming. While Bartell Global is truly a powerhouse in several industries, the personal care and concern that everyone shows for the customers is what really sets Bartell apart.

"The most important factor in making this decision, was the people. I feel that this is such a great opportunity for all of those working for, and associated with CONTEC North America and Bartell Global alike. Most importantly, the customers will benefit from the additional resources and assets this merger brings. I’d like to express my immense gratitude to those who have made this possible, and I look forward to a bright future and continued success for all those involved.”

Bartell started its journey in 1946 and has grown into five premium brands, Bartell, Morrison, SPE, Innovatech, and now CONTEC North America. Each have rich histories of innovation and pioneering in the concrete, site and surface preparation industries.

CONTEC North America has additional experience of private labelling their quality equipment for some of the top rental focused surface preparation companies. With superior customer service, industry experience and cutting edge technology, these brands work together to cover the entire construction cycle from compaction, placement, finishing wet concrete, floor removal, shot blasting, grinding, and polishing. The new addition of CONTEC North America will add to the many benefits Bartell Global has to offer their current and future customers. Learn more at
