Hire and sales operations merge

Matpro Machinery and CRJ Services are merging to form one of the largest machinery hire and sales companies in the UK.

CRJ provides hire equipment to the organics, wood, waste management and material handling industries. With a hire fleet of more than 75 units, 17 engineers and a parts stock holding worth more than £1m at its headquarters in Knutsford, Cheshire, the company has continued to grow from strength to strength.

Matpro Machinery distributes machinery brands such as Haas, Backers, CRS and Steelweld from offices in Scotland. It has now become the sole distributor for Haas and Steelweld Enviro pro­ducts across the UK and Republic of Ireland, and plans to enhance relationships with a number of other manufacturers.

Both businesses will continue to trade as before and operate from existing offices. Plans for additional sites have been prioritized, with a focus on opening a new base in London.

Rob Symons from CRJ says: “With an extension of our spare parts availability and staff resources across a larger footprint, I am confident that we will be able to offer unparalleled service within our industry.”

Ben McQuaid from Matpro added: “We are excited at the prospect of working together to become the most powerful and innovative force within the mat­erials processing industry.”
