A leading supplier of specialist materials handling equipment has announced it is to focus its future efforts on providing a dedicated service to operators of heavy trucks and users of its specialist ports and freight terminal equipment.
For several years Warwickshire-based Cooper SH has been the sole UK supplier of Konecranes trucks and in 2010 forged ahead with its agreement with the Scandinavian firm to represent its port equipment business throughout the UK and Ireland.
As a result, it is now concentrating its efforts in this dynamic marketplace whilst maintaining its reputation as a leading supplier of heavy lift trucks for industrial clients.
Cooper SH’s Managing Director, David Cooper explained: "We already enjoy a dominant market share for reach stackers thanks to our relationship with Konecranes. It makes sense for us to invest all our efforts in markets where we are recognised as brand leader and we can deliver a real value-added service."
As a result of the company’s focus on core business, Cooper SH will no longer distribute Baumann sideloader products.
David continued: "We are very proud of our previous association with Baumann, but we believe that the ports and terminal market offers the greatest opportunity for future, sustained growth.
"We have a good relationship with Baumann and will continue to provide ongoing support for existing customers operating Baumann trucks, including maintenance, servicing and spare parts supply," he added.
