Dutch sales and rental company Metzo Machinery has taken delivery of four Unic spider cranes and taken on the dealership.
The company purchased the units through the European region master distributor Unic/GGR and at the same time has been appointed as the Unic dealer for the Netherlands. The first four units include a six tonne URW-706-2, two 2.9 tonne URW-295s - one regular and one all electric battery powered Eco model - and a 2.9 tonne URW-376.
Managing director Eric Metz said: “Adding Unic to our product range is a great move for us to become one the best machinery suppliers in the Netherlands. Stepping into the lifting market with a brand like this is exciting and very motivating for our salespeople to grow the business further. We aim to provide the best solution for rental companies and end-users and with Unic Cranes have found the perfect asset for our fast growing family owned business. We are proud to be the official distributor for the Netherlands.”
GGR/Unic chief executive Graeme Riley added: “Bringing an established business like Metzo Machinery on board aligns perfectly with our plans for continued growth throughout Europe. With its commitment, capabilities, and excellent reputation, we are confident that together, we can successfully grow the Unic brand across the region.”
