The two Nottinghamshire-based businesses say their partnership means that the region’s quarry operators and materials processing companies have greater access to a variety of products from Martin Engineering.

The agreement will initially cover Derbyshire, Leicestershire, Nottinghamshire and South Yorkshire.
Martin Engineering is a US company with its UK headquarters in Mansfield supplying key components such as conveyor belt cleaners, air cannons and dust control products to enable cleaner, safer, more efficient production. Martin’s products are designed to eliminate blockages and build-ups, prevent spillages and reduce dust emissions.
Worksop-based Wright Engineering designs, builds and instals complex engineering solutions and provides maintenance services and aftermarket spares such as conveyor rollers and power transmissions solutions for industries such as quarrying and building materials. It also serves the power, water, recycling, energy-from-waste and rail transport sectors.

Joshua Jepson, sales director at Wright Engineering, said: “Our new partnership with Martin Engineering gives us access to a range of market-leading products that will further enhance the industrial processing facilities we design, build and maintain for our clients.”

Aaron Bartram, general manager for Martin Engineering UK, added: “Having recently worked with Wright Engineering on a state-of-the-art recycling plant they designed, manufactured and installed in West Yorkshire, we’re now delighted to formalise our relationship with this new agreement. Wright Engineering are a highly skilled team and exactly the right partner to be installing and maintaining our products."

Martin Engineering’s product portfolio includes the pioneering CleanScrape conveyor belt cleaning system, the next generation Air Cannons and Smart Series Nozzles. Martin has also developed the N2 remote monitoring system for conveyor belt cleaners which predicts when servicing is required and updates users via an easy-to-use mobile app.
