Quarry and aggregates distribution coverage extended to cover England, Scotland and Wales
METSO Outotec and their distribution partner McHale Plant Sales Ltd have signed a contract to expand their aggregates distribution coverage to Great Britain (England, Scotland and Wales).
Starting this month [January 2023], Metso Outotec’s mobile equipment, spare, and wear parts, coupled with McHale Plant Sales’ technical expertise and local presence, will ensure that the company’s aggregates customers in Great Britain receive the service levels they have come to expect from Metso Outotec.
The two companies have successfully partnered in Ireland since 2015. The decision to expand the long-lasting partnership to England, Scotland and Wales was driven by a shared ambition to reach and serve customers more broadly in the region.
‘This expansion of our distribution partnership with McHale enables us to not only service the already significant installed base of existing customers, but also reach out to new customers,’ said Juha Yli-Petäys, senior vice-president of global distribution management at Metso Outotec.
‘With the agreement, we provide equipment, parts and services for customers with the desired support level. Our portfolio covers the needs of different types of customers and applications and meets the local requirements and standards. We are happy to be able to utilize the opportunities in the region, in collaboration with McHales, to ensure the best experience and technical support for our customers.’
Mr Yli-Petäys added: ‘A transition period between Garriock and McHale will continue until the end of March for aftermarket support. We would like to take the opportunity to thank Garriock for their contribution during our fruitful partnership.’
Tim Shanahan, managing director of McHale Plant Sales, said: ‘Since our appointment by Metso Outotec as distributors with responsibility for the Northern Ireland and Republic of Ireland markets, we have seen how customer interest in Metso Outotec’s offering has increased significantly. We look forward to building on our partnership with Metso Outotec by bringing our knowledge and experience to the English, Scottish and Welsh markets.’
McHale say they will structure their operations to provide the levels of customer support, sales, marketing and on-the-ground back-up to meet the expectations of the quarry owners and aggregate producers.
