Metso Outotec expand McHale Plant Sales role
Northern Ireland distributor to provide sales and support for Finnish manufacturer’s stationary crusher range
METSO Outotec have expanded the role of their Northern Ireland distributor, McHale Plant Sales, adding their range of stationary, fixed-position crushers to the range of mobile crushers which McHale currently distribute in the province.
The appointment is one that will allow McHale Plant Sales to further extend their deepening presence in the Northern Ireland market, tasking the Rathcoole- and Birdhill-based company with providing complete sales, marketing, distribution, parts and after-sales support for the Metso Outotec range of crushing and screening equipment and aftermarket products and services on an all-island basis.
In a letter to customers, Metso Outotec said ‘the partnership [with McHale Plant Sales] is one that will increase our local support and stockholding to the advantage and benefit of customers. This will include all crushing and screening equipment, including mobile equipment, parts and services to be supplied to the quarrying and contracting business segments’.
McHale Plant Sales have been distributors of Metso Outotec products in Ireland since 2015. Against that background, the company will bring ‘its unrivalled knowledge of our products and a thorough understanding of each model’s suitability and performance in quarrying and aggregates production’, added Metso Outotec.
‘Of particular significance is McHale Plant Sales’ knowledge of the market in Northern Ireland and their understanding of the priorities and preferences that customers set in terms of support and representation – especially at times of urgent need’, the Finnish company added.
Michael McHale, chairman of McHale Plant Sales, commented: ‘Northern Ireland is an important market with which we have had a long and successful association.
‘With our area sales manager in the province, Northern Ireland-based Raymond Murphy, we welcome this expansion to our role and look forward with enthusiasm to supporting Metso Outotec customers there, especially in anticipation of the economic uplift we expect the future will bring.’
