Northumberland manufacturer sees major success from Glasgow's Malcolm Construction partnership
Cramlington-based Miller UK has secured a major order from Malcolm Construction.
The company is a division of The Malcolm Group headquartered in Glasgow. This deal will see more than 30 Miller quick coupler and heavy-duty excavator bucket attachments added to Malcolm Plant’s portfolio as part of its 2019 replacement programme.
The machines will be used on various construction sites, recycling plants and quarries across the UK. Originating as a family-owned business in the 1920s, The Malcolm Group has become a UK provider of construction, logistics and maintenance services. The organisation employs over 2,000 people across the business.
Malcolm Construction is continuing to invest in an up-to-date plant and site equipment, as well as its Plant Hire division that has serviced the construction industry for over 40 years.
Darren Gilmour, director of Plant, said: "The demand for Miller’s products from our customers led to the start of what has turned into a really successful partnership between us.
“Malcolm Plant have been using Miller hitches and buckets for the past 15 to 20 years and the level of customer satisfaction that Miller’s products have delivered over the years has led to Malcolm Plant ordering Miller products for a vast majority of its machine requirements.
“In addition, the aftersales and customer care from Miller has always been spot on and this is one of the reasons that we continue to get our attachments from them.”
Darren concluded: “One of the core reasons we use Miller products is because of the increased safety and reliability. This year, Malcolm Plant [has] purchased Miller full Hardox 450 buckets for a number of their excavators from 14 tonne and above with ESCO hardware.
“We have been using Hardox buckets for the last three to four years and have seen less repair costs and wear on buckets.”
