About us

a brief story of molson

Molson in 1996 in Bristol
Business flourished and by 2001 the company had outgrown its initial rented premises in Yatton and moved to it's own purpose built yard on a 7 acre site in Smoke Lane at Avonmouth, near the M4/M5 axis, (since renamed the Smoke Lane Industrial Estate). Bob Barnett joined Robin and Jonathan in 2005 as chairman of the group of companies.

Currently Molson stands as one of the largest suppliers of Korean and Japanese built excavators in Europe and continues to source a wide range of equipment including dump trucks, dozers, demolition rigs and wheeled loaders. In 2010 Molson became Hyundai's biggest dealer in the whole of Europe.

After sales warranty, delivery facilities and customised paintwork and sign writing are all part of the legendary level of service we take pride in. We understand the importance of finding the right machine for the job and with our extensive global network and alliance with manufacturers we are sure we can meet your needs.
