New Metso UK distributor to service English, Scottish and Welsh markets from new Tamworth base
NEWLY appointed UK distributor for Metso Outotec crushers, construction equipment distributors McHale Plant Sales have chosen the Staffordshire town of Tamworth as the location of their first UK depot. From there, the company will initially service Metso customers across England, Scotland and Wales, with an additional outlet in Scotland to follow next year.
Chosen for what McHale says is its ‘strategic location’, the company’s new Tamworth base is situated on the Lichfield Road Industrial Estate, where it will accommodate offices, machine storage, a parts warehouse and a repair and maintenance workshop.
The company’s sales director, Denis McGrath, said: ‘Of the many locations we examined, Tamworth stood out as one from which we could reach out to machinery owners and operators whose priorities in terms of technical back-up and after-sales support we fully understand. In Tamworth we will implement an approach to customer service proven in Ireland and Northern Ireland where sales, service and parts operate in lockstep.’
Founded during the 1950s, McHale Plant Sales have grown to become a leading equipment distributor with a significant presence in construction, civil works, forestry, agriculture and environmental sectors. Since 2015, the company has been Metso Outotec distributor in Ireland and in Northern Ireland where experience in both markets led to a decision by Metso, first announced last January, to extend their remit to include England, Scotland and Wales markets.
