McHale Plant Sales’ expertise in Komatsu aftersales in Ireland was acknowledged by the Japanese manufacturer at its recent annual Advanced Technical Contest, held at their UK headquarters in Newcastle and competed in by Komatsu distributors from all of their major European markets.
Following the contest, the Irish distributor had reason to celebrate when two of its field service engineers joined the winner’s enclose. Paddy Dunbar, from Bunclody, secured 3rd place in the Mechanical Repair category, while Adrian Canavan from Sligo was the overall winner in the Welding category. No stranger to the competition, Adrian also took first place in the Troubleshooting category two years ago.
In further honours, Komatsu has awarded McHale’s Inventory Control Manager, Anthony Lanigan with an all-inclusive visit to the Ferrari factory in Maranello. This follows the announcement that the Birdhill and Rathcoole-based firm finished 5th overall in Europe for Komatsu Genuine Oil Sales – recognition that the Irish distributor continues to punch above its weight.
