Blue Scotland appointed MDS dealer

An MDS M413 mobile trommel featured on Blue’s stand at ScotPlant

BLUE Machinery (Scotland) has been appointed as the MDS distributor for Scotland and the north east of England. As part of an introduction to the brand, an MDS M413 three-way split trommel was on display at Blue’s ScotPlant stand at the weekend.

MDS, a Terex brand, manufactures heavy-duty rock trommels and conveyors. The company, which was acquired by Terex MP in July, was originally founded in 1995.

Blue Scotland is the second Blue company to become a dealer for the MDS brand in the UK, with Blue Central having taken on the dealership within the north west and central England regions.

Blue Machinery Spares will become the authorised parts provider for the MDS product ranges within the area in which Blue Scotland operate.

Austin Carey, MD at Blue Machinery Scotland, said, “Blue Scotland have had previous experience selling MDS rock trommels in the Scottish market. We felt that the recent acquisition of the business from Terex will result in further development of the product range.

“We see lots of potential applications in which these products can excel in, including overburden processing, rock armour, primary screening and inert materials. We have some demonstration machines on order and we will be showcasing these machines to our customers in the autumn.”

Raheel Qamar, sales & marketing manager at MDS, added, “Blue Scotland will be key to strengthening our product offering in the northern region of the UK and Scotland. This is an exciting partnership, with the local marketing knowledge and existing sales network, Blue Scotland will provide local support to the MDS customer base.”
