Since Blue Group purchased Murray Plant back in 2019, it has always been our goal to grow the business to become a leading attachments distributor throughout the UK. In recent years Murray Plant have grown significantly, taking on several new brands and product lines. As part of our long-term growth strategy the decision has been taken for all current product ranges sold by Murray Plant Ltd, to be sold and serviced through our three core regional businesses- Blue Southern, Blue Central and Blue Scotland.
Blue Scotland will keep the Murray Plant trading name, operating as ‘Murray Plant – A Blue Scotland Company’. However, both Blue Southern and Blue Central will acquire the attachment product lines and continue to operate as usual under their current trading names.
Our product ranges include attachments from world leading brands such as Rammer, Allu, Fortress, Xcentric, Pladdet, OilQuick and more. Spare parts for all these brands will now be stocked at our two dedicated Blue Spares facilities based in Warrington and Stirling, for improved access to parts and quicker lead times.
By bringing our attachment products into the three core Blue businesses this allows us to offer regionalised sales, service and administrative teams to provide customers with more comprehensive levels of service and support. With additional local depots and access to more engineers, our customers will benefit from faster response times and reduced downtimes.
The restructure will be effective as of 1st April 2022 and will see minimal change for our existing customers as their local sales and service representatives will remain the same, but with additional staff resource being added across all departments to better support our customers. All members of staff previously working for Murray Plant will continue to support our range of world leading attachments by joining the regional business local to them depending on whether they were previously based out of Stirling or Warrington.
We look forward to continuing our strong relationships with existing customers and creating some new ones too, as we strive to increase our attachments offering across the UK.
