The Molson Group show their future credentials
The Hub-4 team were recently invited to a VIP Open Day at their Bristol Headquarters…
Located on an 11-acre site at Avonmouth, near Bristol the Molson Group was established in 2003 and currently stands as one of the largest suppliers of Japanese and Korean excavators in Europe.
Employing 240 staff, the group operate out of the Smoke Lane Industrial Estate where recently extensive redevelopment has taken place with the creation of a 1,950m² additional workshop creating an additional ten bays and a gantry crane. To maintain the level of legendary service the company are known for there are thirteen strategically positioned service locations with £5 million of spare parts.
Growth has been considerable, with the group posting an annual turnover up to September 2021 of £251 million, which represents a massive growth on the last pre-covid year - 2019.
Today the group offer a machine portfolio from their eight divisions which represent thirty-two leading OEM’s, including specialist processing solutions for washed and crushed aggregates which effectively underlines the fact that they can provide a 360° single-source solution within the Quarrying, Recycling, Bulk Handling, Demolition, Construction, Ports, Scrap covering all requirements: backing all this up with eighty-four qualified factory-trained service technicians.
To add even more weight to their offering the group are currently in the process of establishing a unique service portal which will consolidate telematics from every machine (regardless of make) providing their clients with a daily update on their fleets and locations.
“I have been to hundreds of shows and open days around the world and the Molson Open Day must rank as one of the best shows I have been to, certainly in the UK, commented John Edwards, Editor - HUB-4.
“The display of machines was staggering and comprehensive and include huge displays from industry leading names such as Hyundai, Sennebogen, Terex Finlay, Ecotec, Rokbak, Kobelco and Hydrema. Also seen were newer additions to the portfolio from CBI, Prostack and Agg Reclaim.
“Alongside the machine line-up visitors were offered a guided tour of the Molson world-class facilities which included their technology centre and three guided tours to working satellite locations within the Quarrying, Waste Transfer and Waste Wood Processing industries. To be honest it was brilliant event, and I for one look forward to the next edition!” said John.
