Bristol based plant and equipment dealer Molson Group, have been appointed as the sole UK distributor by Genesis GmbH for their offering of attachments for the demolition, scrap and recycling industries.

Genesis manufacture a comprehensive portfolio of attachments, including shear attachments for excavators and materials handlers. Their products have an excellent reputation for unrivalled cutting force and durable build quality. The Genesis line-up ranges from the 620Kg GVP 07 shear to the range-topping 25t GXT 2555R, which has a closing force of more than 30.400 kN.

Since their appointment in 2004 as a dealer for NPK, attachments have been a key part of the Molson Group product range. Following the acquisition of Genesis Attachments, LLC by NPK Construction Equipment Inc. in May 2019, the appointment of proven dealer of NPK products like Molson was a natural progression for Genesis.

Genesis shears are made from high strength steel and feature a hydraulic system said to boost cycle times by 30%. Other benefits include a bolt-on piercing tip designed to be replaced in minutes and a dual-glide blade system that accommodates heat expansion when cutting for prolonged periods.

Alongside the Genesis range of shears and multi-processors, Molson Group also distributes a comprehensive range of attachments including, rotating grabs, hydraulic hammers, concrete pulverisers, compactors and many more from NPK.

As well as offering the full range of new Genesis attachments, Molson Group will also offer parts and service for existing users of Genesis attachment customers. The range of attachments will be available from Molson Equipment in England and Wales, whilst Molson Young Plant Sales will represent the brand in Scotland.

Jonathan Wilson, joint Managing Director of Molson Group, commented: “Genesis attachments are renowned for their strength and durability. The broad range of attachments offered by Genesis for end-users requiring robust and hard-wearing scrap shears naturally complements the equipment already on offer from Molson. Furthermore, this solidifies our position as a single source supply option to the demolition and recycling sectors”.

Martin Wirth, Sales Director for Genesis GmbH commented: “Molson has generated impressive growth across the UK in the recycling and demolition sectors and this, along with the outstanding levels of customer service that they deliver, made it a natural choice to appoint them as the distributor for Genesis. We see the UK as a key market and look forward to working with such a progressive and proven dealer moving forward.”
