SANY appoints new Irish dealer

SLEATOR Plant has announced it has been appointed to the SANY dealer network and will cover the entire island of Ireland.

The SANY range of tracked excavators will now join a portfolio which includes machines from Mecalac, Genie and Terex Trucks.

Jonathan Campbell, Sleator Plant’s dealer principal said, “Over the past few years, we have researched the global excavator market and we believe SANY are the best placed manufacturer to make an impact in Ireland. Any preconceptions we had with the Chinese brand were quickly dispelled when we visited the European facilities in Bedburg, Germany. We put the machines through their paces and were impressed by the outstanding quality and power.”

Tony Thorpe, SANY’s European sales manager added, “Sany’s success and growth in Europe over the last three years has surpassed our initial plan and with Ireland a big part of this growth, we are very happy that Sleator Plant have chosen to partner with SANY for this journey. Sleator Plant will undoubtedly exceed all customer expectations as a company that go above and beyond, providing first class service for customers countrywide.”

Sleator Plant will operate from two premises: Mallusk in Northern Ireland and a second one west of Dublin in the Republic of Ireland.

Jonathan Campbell added, “It is our passion to provide market-leading machines with five-star back up and service to all four corners of the island. We plan on rolling out an aggressive demonstration programme on the SY135 and SY215, and with a number of customers showing interested and signing up already, we are eager to get the machines digging.”
