Matpro and CRJ Services team up to offer enhanced service

Matpro Machinery and CRJ Services have agreed a merger which they say will result in the firms being able to offer an “unparalleled” service to customers.

Glasgow-based Matpro Machinery is a distributor for brands including Haas, Backers, CRS and Steelweld. CRJ Services, headquartered in Knutsford, Cheshire, provides hire equipment to the organic, wood, waste management and material handling sectors.

As a result of the new alignment, Matpro has become the sole distributor for Haas and Steelweld Enviro products across the UK and Ireland. The business said it now plans to enhance relationships with a number of other manufacturers.

Both firms will continue to trade as before but with “sharing and expansion of physical and human resources”.

Matpro’s Ben McQuaid said, “Combining our extensive resources will help us to strengthen our offering across the UK and Ireland.

“We are excited at the prospect of working together to become the most powerful and innovative force within the materials processing industry and we look forward to the benefits that this will bring for our customers.”

Rob Symons from CRJ Services commented, “Our new partnership will mean that both CRJ Services and Matpro Machinery are equipped to offer more enhanced services and to meet customer demands more efficiently.

“With an extension of our spare parts availability and staff resources across a larger footprint, I am confident that we will be able to offer unparalleled service within our industry.”
