Brimmond announces new distribution deals with Heila Marine Cranes and KAMAT across the UK and Ireland
Brimmond, the Aberdeenshire-based provider of hydraulic, lifting and mechanical equipment and services, has announced an exclusive deal to become the official UK and Ireland distributor for Heila Marine Cranes (Heila). Heila is a global leader in the manufacture of specialist heavy-duty cranes with over 700 customers worldwide. Through the agreement, Brimmond Group is the exclusive provider and servicer of Heila marine cranes and crane parts across existing and future UK and Ireland customers.
This follows a prosperous 2021 for the engineering company which saw it celebrate its 25th anniversary and announce four new contracts totalling £1.75 million.
Engineering Director for Brimmond, Tom Murdoch, said: “Heila is a strong strategic fit for us, and we’re excited to kick off the new year with this announcement. We’re confident this will allow us to offer an even higher level of service to our customers, providing a greater product range and enhanced delivery options.
“Heila primarily manufactures marine cranes, so this agreement supports us in our growth by widening access to additional marine focused markets, such as defence, aquaculture and renewable energy, while still providing a high-quality product and service to our existing energy sector customers.”
Echoing this sentiment, Heila Managing Director, Dario Ricci sees Brimmond Group as an effective UK and Ireland representative: “Heila and Brimmond share the same values, in particular a focus on offering value to customers. This partnership ensures all customers in the UK and Ireland benefit from excellence in engineering, manufacturing and technical servicing.”
The agreement has also supported Brimmond to grow its crane sales team, with the addition of Stuart Gilligan, Heila’s previous UK distributor.
Tom continued: “We’re really pleased to welcome Stuart, a trusted and well-known voice in the industry, to the team as a Senior Sales Manager. He joins Paul Dingwall, Technical Sales Manager for Marine Cranes and together they offer our customers over 30 years of expertise, experience and stellar service.”
Another standout deal for Brimmond sees the company introduce a new product line by becoming the UK and Ireland distributor and servicer for KAMAT within the oil and gas, marine, aquaculture, and renewable sectors. KAMAT is a globally leading provider of specialist high pressure pump technology.
Tom said: “Our agreement with KAMAT allows us to provide our customers with a superior product, offering higher quality, better durability and longer intervals between servicing.”
Previously, Brimmond was the UK distributor for Effer cranes. The company will continue to offer servicing and support to existing Effer customers in the UK and Ireland.
