The U.S. company has teamed up with two distributors renowned for their high customer service support levels. Stewart Plant Sales (SPS) and Aggregates Processing & Recycling Ltd (Agg Pro) will now be providing quality crushing and screening systems to aggregates suppliers throughout Scotland, England, and Wales.
With a legacy covering nearly 100 years in North America, commencing operations in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA, in 1923, Lippmann began with heavy-duty jaw crushers that have become world-renowned. Continuous development and innovation have seen the company grow into a premier aggregates processing equipment manufacturer.
In recent years, Lippmann has seen opportunities for growth beyond its primary markets in the United States and Canada. The hard rock processing requirements across the UK region enable a natural fit for the applications that are best suited to Lippmann crushing systems.
“Taking this first step into the UK is an exciting time for Lippmann,” says Kevin Kiesgen, vice-president Lippmann. “We look forward to the next 100 years in this region and know that we have partnered with two strong and well-respected specialist distributors.”
With the two new distributors, SPS & Agg Pro, Lippmann equipment sales and support will be efficiently covered throughout the entire UK region. Exclusive in each of their respective territories, SPS will be responsible for Scotland and Northern England (including Lancashire and North Yorkshire). At the same time, Agg Pro will cover all remaining English counties in the South and Wales.
"Agg Pro’s history of putting customers first and its extensive service department made it a clear choice as a dealer for Lippmann. Along with over 25 years in the crushing business, it has an extensive knowledge base for establishing products and brands in the UK.
"Meanwhile, SPS has a long and rich history in the heavy equipment market in Scotland and Northern England. Trading for over 50 years with over 17 locations,” continues Kiesgen. “We are confident it will be a smooth and successful transition bringing Lippmann crushing and screening equipment into their portfolio and to their customers.”
The SPS booth at the ScotPlant tradeshow on 22-23 April in Edinburgh, Scotland, proudly presented a Lippmann jaw crusher for the first time in the UK. “It truly is a momentous day for Lippmann,” said Kiesgen. “To see our growth solidified with a brand-new Lippmann 1200j-e tracked jaw crusher and its new UK distribution partners in place is amazing.”
Lippmann’s new 1200j-e is a heavy-duty, mobile jaw crusher that can be powered via an electric line or onboard diesel generator. Its double-deck prescreen feeds the 48” x 34” high-inertia single toggle jaw and, at 75” deep, is suitable for the hardest rock applications. The 12” DSE control panel manages numerous built-in safety features as standard and, together with 365SiteConnex telematics, ensures maximizing productivity and efficiency from any location.
