KENT, OH – June 23, 2023 – FRD-USA announces the opening of its new U.S. branch, located in Reno, Nev.

The 9,000-square-foot facility’s primary focus is to grow the operation of the company’s rock drill division by stocking both down-the-hole and top-hammer crawler drills and rock drill parts, and performing shop and field service.  In addition, this facility will inventory select hydraulic breaker parts, and carry out the FRD-USA Encore® breaker rebuild program by trained technicians.
