HUB-4 recently went along to visit Agg Pro to learn about their business and the new partnership with McCloskey Washing Systems.
Started in 1996 in Tamworth, Agg Pro are one of the top four global dealers for both the GIPO and McCloskey Crushing & Screening brands and are now poised to embrace McCloskey Washing Systems as an integral part of their business.
We talked with Geoff Caves, Managing Director about the business and the exciting opportunity ahead “Customer service is at the forefront of everything we do, and this ethos runs through the whole team to make sure that the customer is totally satisfied with our products and our service. Over the past 10yrs both the GIPO and McCloskey International brands have been key to our success and we spent a lot of time in the early years making sure that we selected the manufacturers that we wished to represent. We now sell between 80-100 McCloskey machines each year and have plans to enhance that even further with the washing systems side of the business.
We have long-term customers who have had up to 40 machines from us and we believe in the fact that what we promise is what we will deliver, even to the point that if there is an issue we will put it right at our own cost.
“With considerable investment we have recently expanded our workshop facilities to include two new buildings making the site around 40,000sq ft in total and further re-development is planned to maximise space and work-flow. We also have two additional stock holding facilities to cope with demand and will soon have a dedicated spare parts stocking facility for the washing systems side of the business. Our service and support has grown to cover the UK market and we have dedicated customer service personnel on-site here and a team of field-based highly trained service engineers all with fully equipped service vehicles.”
Geoff then talked about McCloskey Washing Systems “We were delighted to be approached by McCloskey to represent them on the washing systems side and we see that as a huge positive for both Agg Pro and McCloskey International. It makes total sense that we now represent McCloskey across all their product lines within our geographical territory of operation. We expect a huge growth in turnover with the amount of business we expect to do, and we can also streamline our business overheads as we already have a full infrastructure in place to handle the new business.
“In terms of staff we will expand to include around 4 new members who will be dedicated to the washing side. Our existing and very highly skilled engineers will also bring a whole host of knowledge to the washing business and our bespoke style of fabrication means we work with our client to provide exactly what they require in terms of safety and accessibility offering unlimited guard options to clients such as Tarmac, Cemex and Lafarge. Often, we work very closely with the site manager and health & safety manager, either on-site or at our production facility to fulfil their exact requirements.
