Manitou Dealership For Robert Coates Plant Sales Ltd.

Manitou has announced the appointment of Robert Coates Plant Sales, Stoke-on-Trent, as its construction product dealer for Staffordshire, Shropshire, Cheshire, Derbyshire and Manchester effective 1st January 2021.

Robert Coates Plant Sales is a family owned business which was started in the early 1980’s by Robert Coates. Like many successful businesses, customers asked Robert to source machines for them. He started with the supply of used machines before becoming the Case construction Equipment main dealer for Staffordshire, Shropshire, Cheshire and North Wales in 2015.

The current premises were purpose-built and opened earlier in 2020 and are ideally situated to serve the new Manitou geographical area of responsibility. They include a large, modern workshop for preparation and servicing of machines, parts store, offices, and showroom facilities. All sales, service and parts staff will undergo Manitou training during November and December. Parts stock will arrive before the year end, ensuring they are ready to support all customer needs from 1st January 2021. New machines will arrive in stock in early January.

This new dealer appointment results from the joint decision of Manitou UK and BTE Plant Sales to bring their current dealership agreement to an end on 31st December 2020.

Richard Parry of Robert Coates Plant Sales commented, we have been looking for some time to add another product range to our portfolio of products. The Manitou range of construction machinery fits ideally with us and our customer base. We are delighted that Manitou has appointed us and we cannot wait to get started on January 1st 2021.

Excavator “No12” For Swains Land Drainage

Last September 2019 we delivered a New Case CX90D Midi Excavator to DR Swain and Son this being their 12th consecutive Case Excavator since 1991.

This time though it was a little different as it was going to be handed over at the Cheshire Ploughing Match with a “few additions”. Having been contacted by someone who will remain “anonymous” to Mention it was Chris Swains Big 50th Birthday and could we do something to celebrate the day !!. Well as always we tried our best to accomadate the request. First stumbling block “The Ploughing match was cancelled” plenty of rain spoiled the day, However all was not lost on the day of delivery pulling up close to Burleydam the plan was hatched Balloons, Ribbons and Bows attached along with a Chris 50 in Case Power Tan message for the front screen. When our low loader arrived on site shock took over and for Once in his lifetime so far:

“Chris was stuck for words”.

I think we made his day !!!.

Thank you Chris and the team at DR Swain and Son for the business it was very much appreciated by all of us here at Robert Coates Plant Sales Ltd.

One very happy man on his New Case CX90D.
