Miller partnership with Malcolm pays off
Attachment specialist secures order for more than 30 quick-couplers and heavy-duty buckets
GLOBAL attachment specialists Miller UK have secured a major order from Malcolm Construction, a division of The Malcolm Group headquartered in Glasgow, Scotland.
The deal will see more than 30 Miller quick-coupler and heavy-duty excavator bucket attachments added to Malcolm Plant’s portfolio as part of their 2019 replacement programme.
The Miller attachments will be use with a range of brand-new excavators up to 22 tonnes at various quarries, recycling plants and construction sites across the UK.
Plant director Darren Gilmour said: ‘The demand for Miller’s products from our customers led to the start of what has turned into a really successful partnership between us.
‘Malcolm Plant have been using Miller hitches and buckets for the past 15–20 years and the level of customer satisfaction that Miller’s products have delivered over the years has led to Malcolm Plant ordering Miller products for the vast majority of their machine requirements.
‘One of the core reasons we use Miller products is because of their superior safety and reliability. This year Malcolm Plant have purchased Miller’s full Hardox 450 buckets with ESCO hardware for a number of their excavators weighing 14 tonnes and above.’
Mr Gilmour continued: ‘We have been using Hardox buckets for the last three or four years and have seen lower repair costs and less wear on the buckets.
‘In addition, the after-sales and customer care from Miller has always been spot on and this is another of the reasons that we continue to get our attachments from them.’
James Ross, business development director at Miller UK, commented: ‘We are delighted to supply our products to Malcolm Plant. They are building their business on values that we hold dear – quality, reliability and customer satisfaction.
‘This is an exciting time to be working closely with such a fast-moving group and we look forward to helping them meet their significant growth objectives.’
