Metso is introducing a new distributor model for Italy which, the company says, will bring Italian distributors closer to their customers and enhance service
Three exclusive distributors will cover the whole of Italy. Righini and Frantoparts will handle the exclusive distribution of all Metso stationary crushing and screening machines. Righini will cover the provinces of Valle d'Aosta, Piemonte and Liguria, and Frantoparts will cover the remaining provinces. Scai will be the exclusive distributor of mobile equipment for the whole of Italy.
"These three distributors are already our long-term partners with proven expertise and service capability. We are confident that they are the right partners for us for many years to come," says Angel Luis Garcia, Metso's distribution business manager for Spain & Italy.
Frantoparts has operated in the world of aggregates and crushing and screening equipment since 1983. It has also accumulated considerable knowledge and experience with Metso's crushing and screening solutions. In addition to new machine sales, the company also offers an extensive range of services, from the replacement of spare and wear parts to on-site assistance, machine revisions and reconditioning.
"We are proud to link our technical and commercial experience to Metso. We believe that the daily collaboration between Metso - a brand that has always been associated with innovative and reliable in-time products - and Frantoparts will create new, interesting opportunities for Italian customers. Frantoparts has been a supplier of the Metso Group for Loro & Parisini parts for years. This closer collaboration will bring definite advantages to customers who care about the quality of spare parts," says Nevio Campagner, general manager of Frantoparts.
Righini, founded in 1911, provides its customers with a complete range of service - from initial consultation to after-sales service with the supply of original spare parts. At its centre in Grugliasco, Torino, the firm has a large inventory of primary emergency spare parts and the most requested parts, allowing it to react quickly to customer needs.
"Our collaboration with the Metso Group started in 1972. Our goal is to confirm and strengthen the presence of Metso products in our activity area as much as possible," says Ermanno Pavesio, CEO of Righini.
Scai been working in the aggregates business for over 70 years. Today, it offers the new Metso mobile machines and a rental fleet to customers. The company has an extensive network of workshops and rental points from where it operates.
"These distributors can help the customers to find the best, most cost-efficient solution in the market. They all believe in continuous improvement of their customer service, and they have the skilled people required to serve the customer in a professional manner," says Dirk Fischer, head of distribution Europe at Metso. "We have no doubt that Metso, together with its new distribution network, will rise to new heights as the market has now started to recover," he concludes.
