News Item: Scotland Growing Territory for Leading Site Machinery Business
Morris Site Machinery, a fifth-generation family run business, is hailing Scotland as one of its best performing territories for sales of its robust site machinery products with sales continuing to grow.
With manufacturing and service depots in Wolverhampton, Lincolnshire, Aylesford and Stirling, the innovative business exports to 25 countries worldwide and has announced that Scotland is a top performing UK territory.
The leading site machinery business has been renowned in Scotland for over 30 years where its range of generators, lighting towers, pumps and pressure washers have been powering sites and events across the whole of Scotland.
Heading up Scottish Sales is Stirlingshire man, Kenny McKay who runs the dedicated Sales and Service Centre at Springkerse Industrial Estate in Stirling, working closely with fellow Scot, UK Sales and Service Director Richard Denholm. The dynamic duo have been working together for five years, originally at its Perth depot before the company opened its purpose built premises in Stirling in 2014, allowing for stronger business links and accessibility to Glasgow and Edinburgh. The move from Perth added 130% additional space for the business meaning the depot could hold more stock which is now available for next day delivery.
Kenny's focus on servicing is paramount with Service Engineer Andrew Coles, taking huge pride in providing the kind of service which has seen consistent growth – often defying tough market conditions.
A qualified engineer in his own right, Kenny explains why he believes the products and service hit the mark for the demanding Scottish hirer of site equipment: "Having an in-depth understanding of exactly how every one of our machines works definitely hits the spot. There's no time for white noise here and I can come from the customer's perspective on the technical advantages of our range and their applications. I find it makes all the difference and has helped me get close to my customers, understand their business and its needs which in turn means I meet their demands with the right product for the right application."
He continued: "The brand names we offer like Denyo, ArcGen, Hilta and SMC mean something to Scottish hire businesses. We have a wide customer base from tool and plant hire to airports and construction companies who build wind farms, so it is important we have the breadth and quality of product required for this diversity.
"I have many customers who rely on our rugged machinery to withstand some pretty rough temperatures and terrains. They have to know that the quality and robust build of machines will perform under these conditions. Some of our latest lighting towers in the SMC range like the TL90 evolve and are particularly going down well and, with so many eco models now available like our SMC TL55 Battery and TL60 Solar, we are able to ensure we are supporting customers' green and clean ambitions too."
Richard Denholm commented: "We feel we are in tune with our regional markets and we know that Scottish business demands a bespoke and trusted service at its heart. That is why we invested and established our base here and why it is growing. As an engineer by trade myself, what you see here at Morris Site Machinery is what you get. Robust, fit for purpose products which deliver great value for customers year after year. Add to that the unique 'Kenny factor' and it’s a winning formula. Anyone who knows Kenny will corroborate that fact!"
Both Richard and Kenny were recently crowned as Morris Stars in the parent family Company Awards ceremony to mark its 150th year of successful trading. A measure of how they are viewed by colleagues and customers alike.
