Blue Group has been appointed as Terex Fuchs' UK distributor with immediate effect, succeeding Hydrex, who held the distributorship since 1999, but who recently entered administration. Blue will take over Hydrex's staff and Bristol premises, and will continue to operate the Hydrex Portishead office as the base for the Terex Fuchs dealership and integrate existing staff with its own Warrington, London, Bristol and Stirling offices.
According to Terex Fuchs managing director Ron de Vries: "The Terex Fuchs material handling machines are perfect to integrate into the wide variety of products and services offered by Blue Group for the recycling industry. We are grateful to Hydrex for all services and work performed to date and look forward to expanding our presence together with the Blue Group in the UK recycling market."
Blue Group director Brian Maxwell added: ""We are delighted to be appointed as the new distributor for Terex Fuchs in the UK. It has been our long term growth strategy to add a materials handler to our existing portfolio of exclusive brands, and we are thrilled to have secured the dealership of our number one choice in Terex Fuchs."
Brian continued: "One of our key strengths at Blue is our strong after sales support. We look forward to working with all existing Terex Fuchs customers and aim to improve the levels of service they have been receiving. We are looking to build on the world class reputation and quality of the Terex Fuchs machines and see our appointment as a long term commitment to becoming the UK's leading supplier of material handling equipment."
