Manitowoc Crane Care appoints dealer in Ireland

3/17/2014

Irlequip, a leading construction equipment company in Ireland, is Manitowoc Crane Care’s new Grove dealer for the country and Northern Ireland. Irlequip will provide complete after-sales support – including spare parts, service and training – to all Grove mobile crane customers in the region, fully supported by Manitowoc Crane Care’s UK team.

Adding Irlequip to its global service network ensures that customers across Ireland will receive a first-class after-sales service, as Steve Bradby, Manitowoc Crane Care director for the region, explains:

“Irlequip offers the same high-quality service and dedication to its customers as we do,” he says. “They are well known in the market and we are confident they will help us to expand our service and strengthen our relationship with Grove customers across the country.”

Established in 2005, Irlequip specializes in the distribution, sale and service of construction equipment in Ireland and Northern Ireland. The company will dedicate one of its team to servicing Grove all-terrain and rough-terrain cranes full-time and will invest in a specialized service vehicle too.

John Ledwith, company founder, expressed his delight at adding Manitowoc Crane Care service to his company’s capabilities.

“We are delighted to represent Manitowoc Crane Care and provide support to the industry-leading line of cranes from Grove. We’re committed to providing the highest level of service to our customers and our work philosophy fits well with the goals of Manitowoc Crane Care,” he says. “We look forward to working with Manitowoc and its customers, as well as developing its presence in Ireland for many years to come.”

Irlequip’s main facility in Moate, County Westmeath, features purpose-built training facilities, and a large workshop and yard. From this location, in the heart of Ireland, the company can reach almost anywhere in the country in under three hours.

Manitowoc will continue to provide direct sales to Ireland, while Manitowoc Crane Care will fully support Irlequip in its new role.
