McHale Plant Sales Plans For Growth in 2018

McHale Plant Sales Plans For Growth in 2018

The appointment of McHale Plant Sales as distributors of Komatsu Forest timber harvesting machinery and Terex Ecotec environmental and waste recovery equipment, which includes waste shredders and wood chipping machinery, is one that managing director, Michael McHale says ‘will augur well’ for the Birdhill and Rathcoole-based firm.

Following a highly successful year in which sales volumes at the company increased by some 20% on the previous 12 months, Michael McHale, sees scope over the next few years for a further 40% growth within the marketplace generally.

“Within our enlarged portfolio, the Komatsu Forest and Terex lines will complement each other extremely well,” Michael McHale notes. “Together, they bring us into new areas of activity that offer considerable scope for growth – in the expanding forestry sector, in waste management and recovery, and in biomass fuel generation.” He adds: “In other areas too, they will dovetail extremely well with other equipment we already represent.”

Planned for next year is an even more intensified marketing drive. Attendance at the Association of Farm and Forestry Contractors show in January, a number of agricultural shows and the National Ploughing Championships in September are amongst the activities earmarked.

With the majority of Komatsu Dash -11 excavators now available, coupled with a very large increase in demand for their PC138 model, sales activity in their traditional construction plant, civil works and quarrying sectors will be maintained with plans to increase sales across their Komatsu excavators, dozers and wheel loaders lines and Metso mobile and fixed crushing equipment.

“The recruitment of additional personnel, particularly in after-sales, will also feature high on our agenda in 2018,” says McHale.
