Makinex partners with leading UK site machinery business – Morris Site Machinery

Makinex are constantly growing and this month has been no exception.

Makinex are pleased to announce that we will now be selling our products via Morris Site Machinery in the UK – a leading British manufacturer and distributor of a range of world leading on-site machinery.

 

Morris Machinery and Makinex have many common traits including priding themselves on having a reputation for quality products and providing first class service.

 

Morris Site Machinery will be selling the Makinex Range under the company’s Morris Select Range including:

 

  • Makinex Dual Pressure Washer
  • Makinex Jack Hammer Trolley
  • Makinex Powered Hand Truck

 

Rory Kennard and Paul Weaver, our International Sales Manager, spent some time in the beautiful English Countryside providing training for our products with the Morris Site Machinery Team.

 

Throughout the demonstration and training Rory was delighted with the enthusiastic response to the products from the sales and marketing teams. It was a no brainer for them as soon as they could see the innovative product range and the benefits they provide to the end user.

 

Especially the Powered Hand Truck that constantly amazes users as soon as they see the benefit to their team in terms of safety and time saved.

 

Phil Winnington, Managing Director at Morris Site Machinery commented: “Kennard’s have been our largest Australian customer for many years and we pride ourselves on our positive working relationship. 

 

“It was during a meeting together earlier this year that our Chairman Chris Morris and I spotted the Makinex products and asked to find out more.  We could see a distinct niche in the UK market for these kind of innovative, time saving devices and hence the plan was hatched to become a distributor in the UK, drawing on our own reputation for providing quality products to a wide range of industry sectors and customers.”

 

Paul said “Due to Morris’s experience and expertise in the construction equipment industry in the UK, we feel this is a perfect match, and are looking forward to the future.”

 

Nokia Support use Makinex Generators

Makinex Generators have a reputation for being robust, reliable, and using the latest Alternator technology to provide users with parallel power whilst being 30% more compact than our competitor’s comparable product.

Nokia Communications supply first class support to their users, and want to ensure they use the best equipment for their field service unit.

Makinex have recently signed a national deal to supply every Nokia field service unit a Makinex 10kva Generator for reliable use in the field.

In the event of a Nokia support tower having a problem, their field service unit attend to the issue within 4 hours to ensure power is restored as soon as possible.

Nationwide the service units now have Makinex 10kva Generators in every service vehicle to ensure they can get the support tower back up and running.

 

Nokia needed to have a Generator that was

–          High Quality

–          Easily Mobile

–          Reliable

–          Compact – 550mm wide

–          3 phase capability

–          Australian designed and assembled

 

Makinex ticked every box.

Makinex Generators use the RFL permanent magnet alternator allowing us to manufacture our 10kva Generators 30% more compact than our competitors.

This meant they fit perfectly into the service vans.

Another feature Nokia liked about the Makinex 10kva Generators was the ability to parallel 2 units together to create a 20kva output.

Makinex national service and parts support ensured Nokia’s round the clock requirements were fulfiled.

Makinex takes Agquip by storm

Canycom Dumpers – Farewell Wheelbarrows

Makinex distribute the Canycom Swivel Dumper to many NSW Cemetery’s and Crematorium. The benefits of this machine to the cemetery industry are easy to see.

 With the ride-on tracked 180 degree swivel dumper with a pivoting bucket, it is designed for easy performance and maneuverability over rough and tight access terrain.

 It is only 980mm wide which makes it perfect for working in confined spaces, and with heavy duty rubber tracks and roller system provides a comfortable ride that minimizes ground damage.

 Makinex have recently provided Macquarie Park Cemetery and Crematorium 3 machines. Roland Wittkamp – burial coordinator says

“We at Macquarie Park Cemetery and Crematorium use the Canycom’s when digging in tight spaces such as in our monumental gravesite areas.

 The Canycom’s are easy and precise to manoeuvre in the tight spaces.

 This gives us the advantage to use machinery instead of wheelbarrows to remove the earth from a gravesite, which makes the work of course a lot easier and safer for us.

 The ability to spin the tipper tray on the spot  helps  us as well with the fill in, which again would otherwise be a manual and very labour intensive task.

 For the work situations we use the machines in, I can recommend them.”

 

 The benefits of this machine to the cemetery industry are a perfect match, and why would you use hard labour and a wheelbarrow when you can get the job done faster, easier and safer with the Canycom Dumper.

 Canycom Range Includes Canycom S100 1 tonne swivel dumper and Canycom S25A 2500KG Swivel Dumper.

 Other innovations designed by Makinex include the Cormidi Dumper Range, the  Jackhammer Trolley, a tile lifting and floor demolition tool, and Makinex Powered Hand Truck.

By the power of Makinex – Small but powerful Generators

There are some machines you just can’t do without on a construction site.

 Power is one of those things.

  • Using the latest in alternator technology
  • Smaller and more compact than other models
  • Greater robustness with a galvanized frame
  • More fuel efficient
  • Easier to maneuver, store and transport

 Makinex are happy to boast that our generators are 15 % more efficient than other brands and with a casing size of 668 x 548 they are also the most compact.

Testimonials

 

“Previously, we used large sheets of plywood as ground protection at the Royal Easter Show when vehicles needed to cross or stand on the main arena and other grassed areas, however, the ply was very heavy to handle and also used to sink into the grass. AlturnaMATS Ground Mats are very strong while being light and easy to move around, which means you can get the job done very quickly. We used about 12 of them while building the water jump for the equestrian events in the main arena, but in other areas you might use just 4 of them under the wheels of a truck. They are also good for inside pavilions to protect flooring from forklifts, boom lifts and similar machines.”

Peter Walters, RAS Asset Services Manager, Sydney NSW

 

 “We purchased 30 x AM48 AlturnaMATS Ground Mats. We gave the mats a go for our drilling rig at Wardswell in the black soil (real soft ground), without them mate they would have never got out. They’re definitely worth their weight in gold, everyone was rapt.”
