McNeilus Truck & Manufacturing, Inc., an Oshkosh Corp. company, announced a strategic partnership with Boughton Engineering of Wolverhampton, United Kingdom, that will reintroduce the McNeilus front loader product line to the U.K. Under the agreement terms, Boughton will mount, finish, market and support McNeilus front loaders in the U.K. The first McNeilus units will be completed in early 2017.
“We’re excited to announce this agreement with Boughton Engineering, re-opening important new markets to McNeilus’ leading line of front loader refuse vehicles,” Christopher Zuniga, senior director of international sales and operations for the Oshkosh Commercial Group and McNeilus, said in a statement. “McNeilus offers top-quality products that are known for durability and reliability. Boughton Engineering has broad industry expertise and an excellent sales team and after sales support. This is a true win-win for all parties involved, especially for refuse haulers in the U.K.”
“We are delighted to have concluded this agreement with McNeilus and we look forward to developing our close commercial collaboration,” Boughton Group Managing Director, Richard Skan said in a statement. “The McNeilus front loader product line is a perfect strategic fit with our established waste handling products, and this will enable our companies, together, to support our customers with a significantly stronger offering.”
For the U.K. market, these front loaders are expected to be used primarily for commercial collection, but McNeilus vehicles are engineered for commercial or residential applications.
