Yanmar boost for MTS


A north of England dealer for Yanmar compact equipment has had its territory expanded into Scotland.

MTS Plant, which has been covering Yorkshire, Lancashire and Cheshire for the last six months, now has responsibility for distributing Yanmar’s excavators, wheeled loaders and carriers across Glasgow, Edinburgh and the Borders. It has a depot in Cumbernauld.

David Cockayne, UK & Ireland sales manager at Yanmar Compact Equipment Europe, said MTS had achieved “outstanding results” since joining the dealer network. “A key corporate priority for Yanmar in the UK is to increase access to our class-leading product portfolio for customers nationwide. Further expanding MTS Plant’s territory was therefore deemed a significant step forward.”

Sarah Black, managing director at MTS Plant, added: “We are thoroughly enjoying working with Yanmar; they are progressive and have a real appetite to do business. The product feedback from new customers experiencing the brand for the first time has been very strong, which has provided MTS Plant with the confidence to expand further into new sales territories.”

Nairn-based main dealer Chris Knight Plant Sales continues to handle Yanmar in the north while Stevie Walker Plant Sales of Alloa, which was appointed late last year as a sub-dealer to Chris Knight to cover the south, retains responsibility for Stirling, Kinross, Perth and Angus.
