New dynamism


Dynapac has gained a new lease of life following its purchase by the Fayat Group. Nick Johnson reports on the plans for the brand and the launch of improved rollers.


One of the most significant corporate news stories in the construction equipment sector last year was the purchase of Atlas Copco’s Road Construction Equipment Division by the Fayat Group. This deal brought the Dynapac brand into the same stable as Bomag, which also makes rollers and pavers.


Although Dynapac now joins Bomag in the Road Equipment Division of the family-owned Fayat Group, President Jean-Claude Fayat is emphatic the two famous brands will remain autonomous with their own core product lines, separate production facilities and sales and service networks. To graphically show the intention to promote Dynapac in its own right, the Fayat Group has moved quickly to implement a new product colour scheme of red, white and grey.


“Red has always been a significant colour for Dynapac, and when investigating the brand values, red was among the top recognition factors,” says Herman Matthyssen, Dynapac’s Vice President Marketing. “The new colours also underline the uniqueness of the Dynapac brand within the Fayat Group.”


Jean-Claude Fayat says, “As the specialists for all road equipment solutions, we are proud to offer products and services from highly recognised brands. We will maintain both Bomag and Dynapac in the market by continuing both complete product portfolios. By having separate sales and service channels, customers will be able to choose their preferred solution package.

“Dynapac has an excellent strategic place in our Group and we plan on growing and expanding its presence and product offering. We will leverage its expertise and technologies together with our existing portfolio to continuously develop equipment that closely addresses our customers’ needs.”

Having been established in France during 1957, the Fayat Group now includes both construction companies and machinery manufacturing operations. It acquired Bomag in 2005 and now, with the addition of Dynapac, annual turnover is set to rise to €4.0 billion.


The Dynapac story dates back to 1934 with the formation of AB Vibro-Betong in Stockholm and, two years later, the company developed its first vibratory compactor. It was an early pioneer of self-propelled vibrating rollers and, in 1973, the company name changed to Dynapac - short for Dynamic Compaction.


Dynapac was sold to Atlas Copco in 2007 which subsequently applied its corporate livery to all machines by 2013. Now, whilst the rammers, plates, walk-behind rollers and trench rollers remained as Atlas Copco products (and, as announced recently, are being sold to Husqvarna), the Fayat Group has quickly assimilated the larger ride-on Dynapac machines and, at a recent customer event, new sixth-series lightweight tandem rollers were officially launched.


The newcomers are the Dynapac CC1100VI and CC1200VI ride-on vibratory tandems with drum widths of 1,000mm and 1,2000mm respectively. Both machines are made at the Dynapac factory at Karlskrona in Sweden and they each utilise a transversely mounted 26kW (35hp) Kubota D1703-M water-cooled engine that is Stage IIIA emissions compliant.


Weighing in at 3,400kg, the re-designed CC1200VI offers a better view to the front drum edges. This has been achieved by moving the water tank to the rear part of the machine to allow the use of a narrower front superstructure. The CC1200VI incorporates increased diameter drums complete with tapered edges, and compaction up against walls and kerbs is aided by the ability to offset the front drum by up to 50mm. New options include a canopy roof on the ROPS frame, dual drive levers, a side-sliding operator’s seat, central lift point, LED work lights and a rear-mounted 250-litre capacity chip spreading hopper.


The Fayat Group has created a new company called Dynapac UK Ltd, and General Manager Mark Black is planning to establish a new, more centrally located, office and workshop facility. The smaller rollers will continue to be sold through the existing dealer network that includes Broadway Machinery, Butler Reynolds, CBL, Hodge Plant and W A C McCandless.
