Hyva appoints Ballinlough and S.M. Components as dealers

Hyva, has appointed two new dealers, Ballinlough and S.M. Components, for its Cranes on the island of Ireland. Both companies are leading service providers in their respective territories.

Ballinlough will take on responsibility for sales and support of Hyva’s complete portfolio of crane products – Hyva Cranes, Kennis Rolloader cranes and Amco Veba Marine cranes in the Republic of Ireland, while S.M. Components will take responsibility for Northern Ireland.

Both dealers will also direct their hydraulics expertise and experience to the installation of wet kits on truck tractors.

“We are excited by this opportunity to represent Hyva and will be working hard to build business for Hyva, as we have done for Thermo King and Dhollandia,” said Neil Jordan, Sales & Aftersales Director of Ballinlough. “We will be working closely with Hyva on sales and our proven aftercare network is ready to provide the technical service and support which is essential in attracting and retaining loyal customers.”

“Hyva is a highly reputable brand which we have always admired,” explained Seamus Hanna, Managing Director of S.M. Components and Terry Johnston, General Manager said.

He added: “Locally, we already have good relationships with all of the truck dealers and vehicle bodybuilders within Ireland and have an established customer base that is relevant to the Hyva product portfolio. We pride ourselves on only supplying the best quality products and this is something we know we will get from Hyva.”

The new partnership has already completed its first crane sale – a tipper truck/crane (HB40E1) combination to Walker Vehicle Rentals – a specialist in vehicle rental, contract hire and fleet management. The vehicle will be provided on hire to Cork Council for general materials and waste transportation. Walker Vehicle Rentals is also the authorised dealer for Hyva’s hookloaders and skiploaders in the Republic of Ireland.

“Hyva now has a presence in Ireland again, after a break of more than five years, and we are off to a great start and with both Ballinlough and S.M. Components coming on board as our dealers for cranes. We are strengthening our capability to cover all market segments for crane applications,” explained Dyllan Gomes, Business Development Manager, ROI and NI, at Hyva UK.

“As a leading service provider, we need partners who share our values and have the expertise and experience in sales and aftersales service to support customers – we believe that both Ballinlough and S.M. Components are well qualified to meet this requirement.”

Over the last 30 years, Ballinlough has built a nationwide sales, service and maintenance network with facilities in Roscommon, Dublin and Cork. The company has represented Thermo King since 1992 and Dhollandia since 1995 – both leading brands in their respective fields of Refrigeration and Tail Lifts. In 2013, Ballinlough was appointed as Fleet Manager for Tesco’s LCV fleet of home delivery vehicles.

Trading since 2001 as SB Components (Ireland), S.M. Components was formed in 2012 and continued as the sole distributor of SB Components – bespoke components for the bulk transportation industry – in Ireland. In addition, the company is now strategically aligned with a range of reputable brand names, including Gardner Denver, Emmegi, MotorMax, InterLube, as well as Priden Engineering and McPhee Mixers.  S.M. Components has continued to invest in manufacturing, installation, aftersales support, and stock holding of components.
