SANY announce appointment of Banner Contracts as new excavator dealer for north-east England
FOLLOWING their initial entry into the UK market in 2015, SANY are now embarking on their next chapter by establishing a new regional dealer network across England and Wales, and the latest company to join the SANY family is Darlington-based Banner Contracts.
With more than 35 years’ experience in the construction equipment industry, Banner Contracts are one of the most respected and well-established family businesses in the north-east of England. They will be responsible for all sales and support of SANY excavators across Northumberland, Tyne & Wear, Co. Durham, North Yorkshire, West Yorkshire and East Yorkshire.
‘We were very impressed by the professionalism of the Banner team, as well as their extensive support network across the north-east of England,’ commented Simon Zhu, managing director of SANY UK & Ireland. ‘We want to ensure SANY customers receive industry-leading care and are confident Banner will provide this.’
Mike Banner, managing director of Banner Contracts, said: ‘Over the past number of years, we have watched the SANY range of excavators grow and are very proud to represent this brand across the north-east region. The feedback on product performance has filled us with great confidence and now look forward to a great future as part of the SANY family in the UK.’
Hydraulic excavators are one of the most successful products in the SANY range, having cumulatively sold 250,000 units worldwide over the past 17 years, including a record 60,000 units in 2019.
As well as building a new dealer network across England and Wales, SANY UK & Ireland are in the process of setting up a direct sales route in Scotland, whilst Sleator Plant continue to sell and support SANY excavators in Northern Ireland and Eire.
