Red Knight 6 Ltd and Falkirk-based Empire Exports agree strategic partnership in Scotland
UK equipment sellers Red Knight 6 Ltd (RK6) and Empire Exports have agreed a strategic partnership that will see Empire Exports offer RK6 partner machines exclusively to the Scottish market.
RK6 currently work with a variety of partners to provide a range of crushing, screening, shredding and material-handling solutions throughout the UK. The business was recently awarded the entire UK dealership rights for Rubble Master, a world leader in impact crushing and screening. RK6 also work with EDGE Innovate, MDS and Komplet, ensuring a complete offering of machines to suit all customer requirements.
Empire Exports are a family-run business, based in Falkirk, Scotland, predominantly specializing in used machinery, but also with a view to satisfying customers’ needs for new machinery to the industry. The management team at Empire Exports has worked in the industry for more than 40 years with the company operating in the Scottish market for the last five years.
‘As part of our recent expansion we have been evaluating a number of options to bring our range of products to Scotland. We identified that partnering with a well-established business would be the best way forward. When we met with Empire Exports it was clear their focus and values were aligned to our own,’ said Paul Donnelly, managing director of RK6.
‘The market remains challenging, finance is expensive, there is continued uncertainty, but by partnering with Empire Exports we can give our customers real flexibility and options on what they trade in against new machines. This will be beneficial in delivering success for all parties,’ he continued.
Euan Fairweather, managing director of Empire Exports, said: ‘RK6 have a great product portfolio, meeting a variety of needs that customers have. We are delighted to partner with them to bring these new machines to the Scottish market. We are really looking forward to getting out and talking to all our valued customers about this expanded offering we can now bring. As well as a strong machine portfolio, RK6 are also committed to a dedicated spares holding and service team on the road, which means our customers benefit from an end-to-end solution.’
