Chris Knight appointed Yanmar dealer for northern Scotland

CHRIS Knight Plant Sales has been appointed a dealer for Yanmar’s crawler excavators in northern Scotland. The Nairn-based business will cover the geographical area from Angus to Caithness.

Yanmar said the appointment was down to “considerable industry experience”, with the dealer “renowned for equipment knowledge and a consultative approach”.

The move is part of Yanmar’s plans to expand its dealer network in the UK and Ireland. Cork-based O’Regan Plant Sales has also been signed up, covering the Republic of Ireland, while Northamptonshire-based Mawsley Machinery will be responsible for distributing Yanmar machines across the East Midlands.

David Cockayne, area sales manager at Yanmar Construction Equipment Europe said, “Further expanding our network comes as part of a continued corporate drive to significantly expand our national coverage and improve access to our latest product range for construction professionals nationwide.

“We specialise in developing reliable and efficient plant equipment to meet exact customer requirements. Our wide range of loaders, carriers and excavators brings European innovation to the UK market.”
