“This is a fantastic opportunity to build on our existing relationship with Haco Kingsland and they have given us this opportunity due to our knowledge of the Haco Kingsland products and also our long established customer base in the south of England,” says Dick Aldrich, Sales Director, RK International Machine Tools Limited.
“By having this defined area below a line from the Wash across to the Bristol Channel, we can work proactively to develop sales of the Haco Kingsland products and also work in co-operation with the other Haco Kingsland partners across the UK.”
Two sales partners have been selected, these being south east -based RK International Machine Tools and midlands-based Lenoch Engineering. The two companies will work alongside each other providing sales and support across mainland UK.
A combined marketing strategy is planned in co-operation with Haco Kingsland to promote the range, which features press brake capacity from 40 to 2,000 tons and working lengths from 1.6 to 10 m; guillotines and shears that can cut up to 32 mm thick mild steel sheets, up to 6 m long; and the CNC turret punch range, including the new state-of-the-art Q5 series with 22 or 30 ton capacity.
Speaking on behalf of Haco Kingsland, European Sales Director Johan Dejonghe said: “The addition of RK International to our sales network in the UK is a great opportunity to expand on the already excellent relationship that we have with them and they will combine well with the well-established and experienced partner that we have in Lenoch Machinery, which also has a number of years’ experience selling the HACO Kingsland brand.”
