Metso UK dealer ‘exceedingly happy’ with progress one year on

ONE year since being appointed as Metso Lokotrack distributors in the UK, McHale Plant Sales has hailed the early impact the partnership has had.

The firm is currently gearing up to exhibit at ScotPlant and Hillhead following a year in which it has established a headquarters depot at Tamworth and a Scottish base in Edinburgh.

Business development director Darragh O’Driscoll said, “Mindful that we began with a blank canvas, we are exceedingly happy with the picture that has emerged.”

Recruitment, which is on-going, has seen key appointments made in sales management and equipment sales; in parts stores and distribution; in administration and customer communications; in in-house machine maintenance and repair; and in mobile field service engineering roles.

“On the personnel side, we have an expanding and committed team, all totally focused on building the business and delivering the best service we can for customers,” O’Driscoll added. “In the important areas of parts availability and supply, our depots are well stocked and supported by an efficient UK-wide distribution structure. So too in tech-support where our team of mobile service engineers continues to expand.”
