Metso appoints exclusive Irish distributor
By Lindsay Gale02 March 2015
McHale Plant Sales has been appointed by Metso as exclusive agent in the Republic of Ireland and Northern Ireland for the latter’s ranges of mobile crushing and screening product ranges.
Under the new arrangement, the Birdhill-based company will commence selling Metso products with immediate effect, with a primary focus on the Lokotrack mobile crushing and screening plants, equipment that McHale believes will have significant appeal for Irish customers.
The appointment sees McHale return to the crushing and screening market - one in which the company previously enjoyed success. Noting the strong foothold that the company has within the quarrying, construction and civil works sectors - due principally to its work as a Komatsu distributor - its new role returns McHale to a position whereby it can plan for future growth built on its very considerable experience and knowledge of the crushing and screening market.
Describing their appointment as one that “rekindles our long-standing involvement in the crushing and screening market”, McHale managing director Michael McHale said: “the Metso product line gives us a premium product offering that fits perfectly into our operation and adds considerably to the value we can bring to customers.”
The expertise that McHale Plant Sales has within the sector is seen by Metso as a feature that should advance its market position in Ireland. This is especially significant at a time when the Irish economy is showing strong signs of recovery with some very significant infrastructural projects currently in the pipeline.
