Doosan has appointed James Gordon (Gordons), based at Castle Douglas in county Dumfries and Galloway, as the new authorised dealer for the Doosan construction equipment range in the South-West and Borders regions of Scotland and for the county of Cumbria, Northern England.
Under the new agreement, Gordons is responsible for sales and servicing of the Doosan crawler, wheeled and mini/midi excavator, wheeled loader and articulated dump truck ranges in these areas.
Founded in 1865, Gordons employs 85 staff across its six depots and has dedicated sales and aftermarket staff for the Doosan range already in place, working out of four depots at Dumfries, Castle Douglas, Castle Kennedy and Whauphill covering the new Doosan area, with a Doosan-trained service engineer based in Cumbria to serve Cumbria and the Scottish Borders.
“We are delighted to be able to appoint Gordons as the new Doosan dealer for Southern Scotland and Cumbria. We were impressed by Gordons’ reputation and focus on the aftermarket and their strong desire to grow their construction equipment business and customer base,” says Kim Dudley, Doosan regional manager, Northern Europe.
“Gordons has already secured a number of new orders for Doosan products and is taking delivery of a significant stock of new machines and parts to ensure good availability for customers in its area.”
Kevin Fraser, sales director at Gordons, says: “We are delighted to be appointed as the new Doosan dealer and see this as a tremendous opportunity for the company.
“We have quickly won orders from different customers covering a wide selection of machines, including 2 x DX27Z. 1 x DX35Z and DX62R-3 and DX85R-3 mini-excavators as well as larger DX140LC-5 14tonne and several DX225LC-5 21tonne machines.”
