Bulk handling equipment manufacturer expands operations and offer wider service in two key markets
MARTIN Engineering, specialists in bulk material handling solutions, have announced an expansion of their UK and Scandinavian operations, which will allow them to offer wider service, faster equipment delivery and extensive employee training to customers.
From their new facility near Mansfield, in Nottinghamshire, which includes a new office, training centre, production area and warehouse, Martin Engineering will partner with UK and Scandinavian customers to offer solutions to common material handling problems, improving efficiency and compliance, while at the same time improving the work environment with safer equipment and detailed training seminars.
‘The UK and Scandinavia are centres of excellence when it comes to bulk material handling and processing,’ said Robert Whetstone, Martin Engineering’s European vice-president. ‘It’s exactly the kind of market that benefits from the innovations in products and services for which Martin Engineering are known.’
Products including air cannons and belt cleaners will be manufactured at the new location. Also housed there will be factory direct equipment and spares for Martin Engineering bulk handling solutions to be quickly dispatched to any area in the region.
Moreover, Martin Engineering’s ability to deliver operational and safety training that is specific to the region’s strict occupational and workplace regulations will be another important asset to bulk handlers in the region.
Appointed as general manager to head up the expanded team is Aaron Bartram, who has 30 years’ experience running major production operations in the heavy building products sector.
Also bringing their experience to the team are customer service representative Richard Housechild and service engineer Wayne Crossland. Mr Housechild will accommodate the growing sales demand of the UK market, whilst Mr Crossland will work on sites installing and servicing customer equipment.
‘The expanded Martin Engineering team is already working with a number of customers in the region,’ said Robert Whetstone. ‘Now that we’ve bolstered our staff and opened the new facility, we’re geared up to achieve our ambitious growth plans.’
Martin Engineering invite Hillhead 2018 attendees to call in at stand RA17, where the team will be on hand to meet current and potential customers, and to discuss common issues and unique problems affecting their operations.
