Blue Group has announced the purchase of Murray Plant, the United Kingdom sales agent for a variety of attachment brands including Rammer.
Murray Plant has been supplying equipment to industries including demolition and construction for almost 30 years since Bruce Murray set up the company in 1988.
Both Bruce and Fergal O’Neill, who is responsible for sales at Murray Plant, will continue with their roles under the Blue Group corporate umbrella.
Rammer equipment includes its world renowned hydraulic breaker line as well as a full range of attachments for the construction, demolition, scrap and recycling sectors. These include rotating pulverisers, shears, crackers and grabs for machines weighing from 3 t to 120 t.
“We are delighted to have completed the acquisition of Murray Plant,” said Blue Group CEO Adrian Murphy.
“It takes us into the attachments sector, which sits well alongside our current product portfolio. Murray Plant also offer sales, hire, service and spare parts on their range of plant equipment, which is similar to our business model for the other brands of machinery we sell.
“This means the business will integrate nicely, particularly as a lot of our customers are also customers of Murray Plant.”
Bruce Murray said: “This agreement with Blue Group will no doubt increase the distribution and sales of these outstanding products over the coming years, as well as providing increased exposure of the brands within the market.”
