New distributor expands Red Rhino’s presence in mainland Europe

CRUSHER and screener manufacturer Red Rhino is strengthening its presence in Europe after signing an agreement with French plant and construction equipment distributor, LOMATER.

Lincolnshire-based Red Rhino was acquired in 2009 by Winfield Engineering. The firm’s product range includes crushers suited to small-scale construction and demolition projects, as well as larger remote controlled crushers and screeners with the ability to crush and organise material such as concrete, brick and other building waste into reusable material.

The business has grown in recent years and continued to attract new distributors around the world, with machines available in Europe, Asia, North America, Canada, and Australia.

LOMATER has now been unveiled as the latest partner. The family-owned business was established in 1980 and has two locations in France. It supports the sales and servicing of machinery ranging from diggers and earthmoving equipment through to tractors and specialist plant machinery.

Lesley Perrin, sales manager at Red Rhino, said, “We’re always looking for new distribution partners around the world who see the value in stocking our products and understand the benefits they bring to construction and demolition companies – both in terms of their projects and for the wider environment.

“LOMATER is a reputable name within the plant industry in Europe and a trusted place for businesses to source the latest equipment. We cannot wait to see how this partnership evolves over time and look forward to establishing a long and mutually beneficial relationship with Stephane and the team.”

LOMATER president Stephane Spreder added, “We were searching for a quality partner in the UK to establish a long-term relationship with, and we were already aware of the manufacturing quality of Red Rhino. Following thorough research, we felt that Simon Winfield and his team were the ideal partner – with great people who are clear in their relationships, efficient in their actions and aware of the needs and expectations of users.”
