A new UK facility is expected to allow a wider service, faster equipment delivery and extensive employee training to customers.
Bulk materials handling solutions supplier Martin Engineering has opened the new facility near Mansfield in Nottinghamshire. It includes a new office, training centre, production area and warehouse.
With an expanded team of knowledgeable professionals, the company said it will partner with UK and Scandinavian customers to offer solutions to common materials handling problems, whilst also improving the workplace environment with safer equipment and detailed training seminars.
“The result is a highly responsive unit committed to improving efficiency and compliance, while minimising customer operating costs,” the company stated.
Robert Whetstone, the firm’s European vice president, commented: “The UK and Scandinavia are centres of excellence when it comes to bulk materials handling and processing.”
Working from a purpose-built production facility, products including air cannons and belt cleaners will be manufactured at the new location.
Also housed there will be factory direct equipment and spares for bulk handling solutions to be quickly dispatched to any area in the region, in order to keep customer plants running efficiently and safely, while reducing expensive downtime.
The company emphasised that the new facility will enhance its ability to deliver operational and safety training specific to the region’s strict occupational and workplace regulations is an important asset to bulk handlers in the region. Using its Foundations reference book, now in its fourth edition, experts at the firm will train customers’ employees on the function, maintenance and safe operation of conveyor systems.
