Stewart Plant Sales, has announced an exclusive dealership agreement with UK pump distributor Obart Pumps. Stewart Plant Sales is Scotland’s leading supplier of construction and ground care equipment while Obart Pumps are the UK dealers for Tsurumi single phase submersibles, APP pumps and Tsurumi engine driven pumps.
Under the agreement, Stewart Plant will be the exclusive dealer to the tool and plant hire and construction industries in Scotland of single phase electric and engine driven pumps. Stewart Plant will be stockists at all 8 Scottish depots of Tsurumi and APP submersible pumps, Honda and Tsurumi engine pumps, DryMax diaphragm pumps, fuel transfer pumps, hoses, spares and accessories. The deal was agreed in July by Matthew Hill, MD of Obart Pumps, with Billy Thomas and Colin Buchanan of Stewart Plant at their Head Office in Glasgow
Matthew said of the deal: “this is a long term strategic partnership that combines the strengths of both companies to provide local availability of high quality pumps to Scotland. With strong growth in Scotland’s construction industry coupled with the instant demands of regular flooding caused by climate change, both companies felt that Scottish hirers and contractors would benefit from the convenience of same day delivery or collection”. Matthew went on to say, “next day delivery to Scotland, from our warehouse in Kent, was often not quick enough in some weather conditions, so the opportunity to team up with a company that shares our highly efficient, yet friendly, service was an exciting opportunity. Like us, they have always sold top quality equipment at competitive prices, through a network of loyal customers, so this is perfect fit for us. We are proud that they have selected us as partners to join the team that includes the top names in construction equipment. On concluding the deal the heavens opened and we got a big dose of rainfall, so we got the feeling that this was a good omen!”
Billy and Colin commented “we have been supplying Obart’s pumps for a few years now and have admired the quality of their brands and the excellent service provided by Obart. Our network of depots will enable our customers to access large stocks of pumps to take advantage of opportunities created by unpredictable weather conditions. It is a great deal for us and our customers!”
