Ballyvesey buys Plantlink

By Euan Youdale15 October 2012

Northern Ireland-based Ballyvesey Holdings has bought Plantlink Ltd., a UK regional dealer for the Doosan Heavy range of construction equipment.

Plantlink distributes heavy-duty telehandlers, crawler and wheeled excavators, wheeled loaders, articulated dump trucks and attachments to customers across North West England and North Wales.

The majority of Plantlink staff, including sales manager, Chris Proctor, will remain with the business. Co-owner and founder of Plantlink, J J Hyung, formerly UK managing director for Doosan, will leave the business.

Dermot Cunnie, general manager of Ballyvesey’s construction equipment division, said: “With this acquisition we have added the Doosan Heavy line of equipment to the Bobcat range sold by our trading subsidiary, Norwest Plant, which was appointed as the authorised Bobcat dealer for the region earlier this year. The acquisition of Plantlink also adds to our existing Doosan and Bobcat dealerships at Montana Plant in Ireland and Scotia Plant in Scotland.”

Established in 1970, Ballyvesey Holdings is a privately owned parent company offering construction equipment sales and service, transport and logistics, truck sales and aftermarket support, as well as trailer manufacturing, transport industry services, and more recently property development, management and investment.
