Murray Plant Ltd, a Blue Machinery Group company, has recently been appointed ALLU’s exclusive distributor for the United Kingdom. This follows Blue Machinery’s acquisition of Murray Plant Ltd, ALLU’s existing dealer in Scotland.
ALLU’s world leading Transformer and Processor series’ needs no introduction; but now UK customers will be able to benefit from even greater levels of support through its new distributor, Murray Plant Ltd. The appointment of such a renowned player in the UK materials handling and processing industry reinforces ALLU’s commitment in providing even greater levels of customer focus. It further enhances locally focused customer support, whilst at the same time enabling customers to benefit from dealing with a truly global company.
Expansion for Blue Machinery
Earlier this year Blue Machinery Ltd announced the acquisition of Rammer’s UK dealer, Murray Plant Ltd. As a key part of the Blue Group, this has led to the company now being able to supply its customers with a first class range of a products ranging from specialist recycling equipment, mobile crushers and screens, trommels, mini-crushers, shredders, balers, materials handlers, and now the world leading range of Rammer breakers and demolition attachments.
As well as being the exclusive Rammer dealer for the UK, Murray Plant Ltd is also the Scotland distributor for the ALLU range of Transformers and Processors. This meant that new opportunities were open to both ALLU and Blue Machinery. “Following discussions with both companies, we realised that an opportunity had arisen which would see Blue Machinery, via Murray Plant, take on the ALLU ranges throughout the UK,” said ALLU’s UK distributor manager, Carlos Guallart.
“The opportunity to work alongside a company of Blue’s stature, as well as continue our relationship with Murray Plant which has dominated the UK breaker market for many years, was a fantastic opportunity,” added Carlos. “We now look forward to working with all parties to ensure that ALLU customers throughout the UK will be able to benefit from dealing with such respected organisations.”
Blue Machinery started when four individual Powerscreen dealerships combined their experience and expertise in 2004. Now with 2018 projected sales in the region of £140million, the company continues to go from strength to strength delivering the very best innovative solutions to its growing customer base. Operating from eight strategically located offices, ensures UK wide aftersales coverage for servicing and spare part needs.
Major brands combined
“What is genuinely exciting for all UK quarrying, demolition, construction, civil engineering and material handling businesses, is that now, for the very first time, the leading brands have now been brought together,” says Murray Plant’s Fergal O’Neill. “Powerscreen, Rammer, Doppstadt, and ALLU, are all acknowledged leaders in their field. The operating synergies under the Blue Machinery banner are simply mind blowing.”
Of the appointment of Murray Plant Ltd as ALLU’s UK distributor, and the opportunity to combine with Blue Machinery, Ola Ulmala, president of ALLU states: “We are sure that the combination of ALLU equipment and global aftermarket support, together with the local knowledge and industry expertise of Blue Machinery and Murray Plant, will enable ALLU customers to benefit from a winning combination. Our relationship with Murray Plant has always been excellent, and we look forward to continuing to work with the company now it is part of the Blue Machinery Group.”
Although only recently appointed as a distributor of ALLU equipment, training and product familiarisation has already begun. Murray Plant Ltd sales, after market and service personnel have already undertaken application and service programs in both the UK and Finland.
