Molson Group and SMP offer complete package
Dealership appointment creates new one-stop shop for excavator and tilt-rotator packages
MOLSON Group have been appointed the dealer for SMP tilt-rotators for England, Scotland and Wales. For more than 30 years SMP have produced a range of high-quality attachments, buckets and tilt-rotators at their state-of-the-art factory in Ilsbo, Sweden.
The company designs and builds a comprehensive range of tilt-rotators to fit excavators ranging from 3 tonnes (the ST6) up to 30 tonnes (the ST28). The range consists of seven models, all painted in a striking blue colour.
The full SMP tilt-rotator range is now being rolled out across the Molson Equipment, Molson Compact Equipment and Molson Young Plant Sales businesses, with units available from 1 June 2019.
By offering the full SMP range, in conjunction with existing brands in the portfolio such as Kobelco and Hyundai, Molson Group will be able to offer customers throughout the UK a one-stop shop for anyone looking to source an excavator and tilt-rotator package from an established dealer.
Molson Group have sold a number of tilt-rotators from a range of brands over recent years and will continue to maintain a strong relationship with these businesses. They will also continue to support customers with warranty work, parts and servicing requirements on legacy units.
Jonathan Wilson, Molson Group’s joint managing director, said: ‘SMP have a great approach to business. They listened to what we explained was necessary for their product to be successful in the UK and are working with us to deliver the best possible solution. I can see that this approach, along with their excellent product design and build quality, will give us a unique offer to both existing and new customers.’
Hans Hanses, managing director of SMP Parts AB, said: ‘Molson Group offer a unique route to market for SMP. Not only do they have a large, effective sales team, they also have the knowledge, skills and scale in their after-sales team to support customers to the level required to change the current landscape of the UK tilt-rotator market.’
‘Molson Group have already had success in converting customers to adopting tilt-rotator technology. This ability to educate customers to the benefits of adopting this technology, along with the ability to offer a complete package to customers using a premium-quality base machine, will make it a compelling proposition.’
