Continuing the planned development of its Green Network of Merlo construction equipment dealers Merlo UK is pleased to announce the appointment of Carlisle based BH Plant Sales.
BH Plant Sales is an independent construction equipment dealership headed up by Managing Director David McIlwraith. Offering the respected Takeuchi franchise from its well-equipped premises in Carlisle, the addition of the Merlo construction franchise will further bolster the company’s portfolio of products.
“BH Plant Sales are a firmly established business with a dedicated team of staff to supply and support Merlo construction products across an area stretching from Cumbria to North East England” comments Owen Buttle, National Sales Manager, Merlo UK Limited. “Just like Merlo BH Plant Sales are a family owned business with a strong desire to offer the very best in customer service”.
“We have been looking for the right opportunity to expand the product portfolio for a good while, in order for the business to take the next step in its growth and provide a greater offering to customers”
states David McIlwraith. “The desired product was always a telehandler for the materials handling, plant hire, and construction equipment market. Therefore when talks opened with Merlo, a market leading brand which is already well recognised in the UK, it felt like the perfect fit and a partnership that could work well for both parties”.
“The team at BH Plant Sales sees huge potential to build the presence of the Merlo construction telehandler range in its new area of responsibility for the brand. A full range of models from the compact entry level P27.6 to large scale Roto models, there is a product to suit every customer. Add to that the Merlo Cingo track carrier range and soon to be launched all electric “e-Worker” models it is an exciting time to be joining the Merlo construction dealer network” concludes David.
