Based in Dumfries and Galloway, Gordons was already the authorised dealer for the Develon range in the South West and Borders regions, Glasgow, Edinburgh, Inverclyde, Renfrewshire, the Lothian Counties, Argyle and Bute, Isle of Mull, Stirling, Falkirk, Lanarkshire and Ayrshire in Scotland and for the county of Cumbria in Northern England. Now with the new appointment, the territory that Gordons is responsible for has been expanded to include Aberdeenshire, Angus, Fife, Highlands and Inverness-shire, Moray, Orkney, Perth & Kinross, Shetland & the Outer Hebrides and Skye.

Gordons was established in 1865 and is a premier agricultural and construction equipment distributor in Scotland. With six strategically placed depots, the company is committed to providing a fast and efficient local service for machinery, attachments and – most importantly – the best possible aftersales support. Gordons (www.gordonsconstruction.co.uk) is now solely responsible for sales and servicing of the Develon crawler, wheeled and mini/midi excavator, wheeled loader, articulated dump truck and attachment ranges in Scotland and Cumbria.

Kevin Fraser, Group Sales Director at Gordons, said: “We are delighted to be representing the Develon brand throughout Scotland. We have received a good response from existing customers - as well as new prospects, there is a high existing population of Develon/Doosan machines in the areas we have added, which we have taken under our wing.”  

Gordons customers benefit from a superb on-site service network, covering everything from emergency repairs to routine maintenance. The company’s factory-trained engineers have many years of hands-on experience of repairs and servicing of all types of plant and machinery. 

Develon is one of the world’s leading construction, quarry and mining equipment manufacturers, offering a broad selection of products including crawler and wheeled excavators (with operating weights from 1 to 100 t), wheel loaders (covering capacities from 1.9 to 6.4 m3), articulated dump trucks (with maximum payloads up to 41 t), compact wheel loaders (from 3.5 to 5 t), dozers (up to 15 t) and products with alternative power sources.
