Hillsborough, County Down-based MPM Specialist Vehicles has been appointed as the exclusive all-Ireland dealer for the renowned range of Broshuis trailers. It’s the first time the Netherlands manufacturer will have a permanent presence in Ireland.
With more than 130 years’ experience in the industry, Broshuis is the oldest manufacturer of semi-trailers for special transport, and like MPM Specialist Vehicles, it is a family run customer-focused business.
“We are delighted to add the Broshuis name to our growing portfolio of leading brand specialist equipment,” said MPM Specialist Vehicle’s Managing Director Mark McCluskey. “We have a big product range, from shunter trucks to specialist industrial trailers and fuel storage tanks, but the only thing missing was a specialist heavy duty semi-trailer range, and with Broshuis we have been able to fill that gap.”
Broshuis has a long-established UK operation which is headquartered at Oakham in Leicestershire, and this increased focus on developing and supporting the Irish market will certainly be well received. “We believe the range has great potential in both the north and south of Ireland and we look forward to helping Broshuis increase their market share in this specialist trailer sector. The Broshuis name is highly regarded in the industry, as are their innovative products,” added Mark.
Commenting on the appointment, Broshuis Director Marcus England said: “We have great confidence in the future in Ireland. MPM Specialist Vehicles is a well-respected and reputable company, with an in depth knowledge of the industry, and enjoys the same family values and quality standards as ourselves, so it was an easy decision to collaborate.”
With its head office based in Hillsborough just off the main A1 dual carriageway to Dublin, MPM Specialist Vehicles will be offering the complete Broshuis range, supported by a comprehensive aftersales service, across the island of Ireland.
With over 130 years of expertise, Broshuis continues to lead the way in specialist trailer innovation, with its extensive portfolio of trailers for the heavy haulage sector. With the introduction of such products as the SL-AIR, and the new generation SL2 alongside more recent innovations from Broshuis such as the PL2 HD, a new generation of pendular axle, they are able to allow users to choose the axle which best suits their requirements and budget.
MPM Specialist Vehicles is currently building up its stock of Broshuis trailers to ensure good availability: “We see this new partnership as a great opportunity to further grow our business throughout Ireland and we look forward to developing a successful and lasting relationship with the manufacturer whose products perfectly complement our own specialist equipment offering,” concluded Mark.
