Now’s the perfect time to repair and rebuild
MST has been at the forefront of the bespoke new buckets, repairs/refurbishment and undercarriage market for over 45 years. In that time it has seen huge changes in the worldwide quarrying and excavation market. With its years of heritage in the industry, current trading conditions are not unfamiliar.
During current conditions however, MST, which has its headquarters in the North East of England, says it is well placed to deal with the challenges and upcoming uncertainty. A marked increase in the level of customers enquiring about repairing and refurbishing worn out buckets is increasingly apparent, as opposed to replacing them with new ones. They believe there is no coincidence that refurbishments have become increasingly popular in recent times.
Even though MST designs and manufactures some of the largest new buckets and attachments being built in the UK today, MST also has a strong team of bucket repair welders and fabricators lead by bucket manager, Nick Fagandini, who was brought into MST almost thirteen years ago and has been at the forefront of the repairs department development.
He explains “Over 500 repairs go through the MST workshop each year, a number which is increasing year on year. “The MST repair department has gone from strength to strength and the great thing is, MST can repair just about anything; from loader and excavator buckets to grabs, pulverisers, rippers – big or small, new or old, all makes and models. you name it, we’ve probably repaired it!”
MST Director, Rory Whitehall, explains, “If you’ve ever had a bucket refurbished by MST, you’ll know only the highest quality Swedish steel is used. We do this because we believe in quality, durability and happy customers who appreciate the time and effort we put in to each and every repair.”
Rory went on to say, “With years of experience in the repairs department alone you can rest assured you’re in safe hands. We listen, advise, consult and deliver solutions to the highest standards.”
It’s something MST is taking very seriously, making a reduction in tool downtime their priority for its
customers. They provide a full on-site inspection and servicing facility. It’s worth noting, MST has the largest stock of loan buckets in the UK. This ensures downtime is at a minimum while we repair your bucket and get it back up and running! MST has also provide a ‘weekend service’ where necessary for customers in the UK, whereby they will collect the worn bucket on a Friday afternoon and have the fully refurbished bucket back on the machine first thing on a Monday morning.
