The UK and Molson Green are getting GREENER: new SENNEBOGEN dealer
November 15, 2015
Starting in November 2015 Sennebogen is strengthening its distributor network in the UK! Molson Green will join in the SENNEBOGEN team and take over the distributorship for materialhandling machines for industries such as Waste, recycling and timber handling industries.
Under the nationwide deal Molson is a UK distributor and can supply the Sennebogen range of materials handling machines and grabs and loaders across the country into all sectors other than scrap metal and ports handling.
E.H. Hassell & Sons Ltd will continue their long standing relationship – concentrating on the scrap metal and port industries.
Molson posted sales of over £80 million last year and this latest move confirms it as the UK’s largest independent plant dealer and highlights its determination to offer its customers not only the highest quality machines but also the very latest designs and developments in plant technology, backed up by its famously top quality pre and post-sales customer service.
Molson Green are delighted to have been able to pen a deal which sees the company welcome yet another world renowned plant manufacturer into the Molson stable.
Molson Green Commercial Director, Andrew Marsh said: “It is a deal we have been working on for some time. Sennebogen machines are widely acclaimed and well known for their superb performance and build quality. Traditionally Sennebogen has always had a focus on port equipment in the UK but we wanted to draw that focus out and introduce the Sennebogen machines to new markets.” Andrew highlighted the focus that the manufacturer has on the development of new machines and electrically powered equipment as other reasons why he felt the tie-up was a fantastic opportunity for both companies.
He said: “We have been steadily developing our business in the waste and recycling sector for a number of years and after such success, now the time is right to launch the Molson Green environmental arm of the Group and Sennebogen is the perfect fit for the Molson Green vision.
The electrically powered equipment Sennebogen has been developing is particularly impressive as are the OVER 50% running costs savings they offer. Sennebogen is the only supplier to offer electric powered material handlers across their whole range. Having done so for many years, they offer an industry leading level of experience.”
Molson will support the new brand from its own state-of-the-art facilities in Avonmouth near Bristol and Warrington near Manchester, servicing clients across the country.
Boasting hi-tech workshops, spray shops and maintenance bays Molson’s workforce of more than 80 are located at the Bristol and Warrington depots as well as locations in Stratford, Tilbury and Southampton with full-time service engineers operating around the country. It is this geographical spread that enables Molson to offer and maintain its high quality of service to customers around the country.
Andrew noted: “In recent years we have grown and evolved. We look forward to welcoming the Sennebogen brand which, although being a global leader in re-handling equipment, is still, like Molson, owned by the founders. When we met with the Sennebogen family we were very quick to build a rapport with similar drive and focus on customer needs – it is a good match.
