ZF Services UK has appointed United Plant Services (UPS) as its approved partner for repairs and maintenance for the off highway sector.
Alan Clarke, operations director at ZF Services, said: “We are excited about this partnership. It will enable us to significantly ramp up the support we can provide to the companies, managers and teams operating heavy plant in often extremely demanding conditions, from quarries and major infrastructure projects to busy ports.
“In such environments it is critical they have machinery they can rely on and downtime is kept to an absolute minimum.
“Should they have an issue they need the confidence that support will be there quickly and that the person working on their valuable digger, crane or other equipment has the right tools, training and technical resource to fix the job.”
If a problem cannot be sorted on site UPS will transport the product to ZF’s repair and service centre in Nottingham. UPS operates in England and Wales as United Plant Services, while in Scotland it trades as Mac Plant, with headquarters in Falkirk.
Mark Cooper, director for UPS, added: “There are tremendous synergies between the two businesses and we’re delighted to have been awarded approved partner status. Both are leaders in their fields and working together we will be offering something others cannot match.”
