Yanmar to appoint new network of UK dealers

YANMAR has pledged its commitment to the UK construction equipment market after announcing it plans to increase access to its machinery portfolio via a “dynamic” distribution strategy.

Appointments to the new dealer network will be announced over the coming weeks after Yanmar said it has mutually agreed not to renew its long-term UK and Ireland distribution contract with A&Y Equipment Ltd.

The manufacturer will appoint a national dealer network to help “closely control” product distribution. Yanmar added that a “rejuvenated focus” on the UK and Ireland market complements the company’s acquisition of Terex Compact Germany GmbH.

Andreas Hactergal, sales and marketing director at Yanmar Construction Equipment Europe said, “As Europe’s compact equipment specialist, the UK and Ireland construction market is a key area of strategic focus for us. Over the coming weeks, we’re looking forward to announcing an all-new network of UK and Ireland dealers and significantly expanding our national coverage.

“With a renowned portfolio of loaders, carriers and both tracked and wheeled excavators (1-12 tonne payloads), we’re looking forward to bringing European innovation to construction professionals nationwide. From engine choice and operating technologies to sector-leading build quality, our latest models lead the way in performance, efficiency and productivity.”
