MDS, which manufactures heavy-duty rock trommels and conveyors, was acquired by Terex MP in July last year having been in operation since in 1995.

Blue Scotland become the second Blue company to become a dealer for the MDS brand in the UK, with Blue Central having taken on the dealership within the North West and Central England. Blue Machinery Spares will become the authorised parts provider for the MDS product ranges within the area in which Blue Scotland operate.

MDS says that the next/same day delivery offered on the vast majority of parts, paired with Blue Scotland’s network of industry leading field service engineers, means that MDS customers will be able to benefit from minimised downtime on their machines.

Austin Carey, MD at Blue Machinery Scotland, comments: “Blue Scotland have had previous experience selling MDS rock trommels in the Scottish market. We felt that the recent acquisition of the business from Terex will result in further development of the product range. We see lots of potential applications in which these products can excel in, including overburden processing, rock armour, primary screening and inert materials. We have some demonstration machines on order and we will be showcasing these machines to our customers in the Autumn”.

Raheel Qamar, sales & marketing manager at MDS, said: “Blue Scotland will be key to strengthening our product offering in the Northern region of the UK and Scotland. This is an exciting partnership, with the local marketing knowledge and existing sales network, Blue Scotland will provide local support to the MDS customer base.”
