Molson Young lands Hydrema dealership in Scotland

MOLSON Young Plant Sales has secured the distribution rights to Hydrema dump trucks throughout Scotland.

The Danish-manufactured machines join the firm’s line-up of dump truck options, which include forward tipping Thwaites dumpers and Terex Trucks ADTs.

Hydrema produces rear and swivel tipping dumpers, specialising in Low Ground Pressure (LGP) design. Molson described the products as ‘more than a match’ for the most demanding site conditions, including soft Scottish peatland.

The Hydrema range focuses on a small number of key products – the 7t payload 707G, 10t payload 912F and 20t payload 922G – all featuring the same self-stabilising pivot steer chassis.

The trucks are constructed from the ground up. Chassis, body and cab components are all designed and manufactured within Hydrema’s factory near Aalborg in the north of Denmark. The company also manufactures all hydraulic cylinders used on their vehicles.

Mark Proudfoot, director at Molson Young Plant Sales said, “The Hydrema brand will be a great addition to the product range available from Molson Young Plant Sales. Their range has proved very popular with our customers in S.W. England and Wales, thanks to their innovative design and high build quality. A key benefit of expanding our existing relationship with Hydrema is that customers can be sure that we already have stock levels of new machines and spare parts to meet their requirements from day one.”

Tim Wadsworth, sales director at Hydrema (UK) added, “Molson Group have been a good dealer for us in South Wales and the South West of England and I believe Molson Young Plant Sales will be the ideal partner for us in Scotland. They have very experienced sales and service teams offering the high levels of knowledge and backup that Hydrema customers expect. Scotland is a very significant market for us and with a professional enthusiastic partner like Molson Young Plant Sales I look forward to growing our presence.”
