RMGT, the company formed from the marriage of the Mitsubishi and Ryobi press manufacturing businesses, has released detailed information regarding press sales and support in the UK for the Japanese equipment.
The European set-up for the combined business now features MPL Limited, an operating division of M Partners Group, Surrey, which has been named as the European Technical Service Centre for RMGT, with a focus on new B1 press sales and existing Mitsubishi press products.
As well as providing a direct focus on the sale of the RMGT B1 offset press in UK and Eire, MPL will manage the European parts centre for machines previously sold under the Mitsubishi name. This operation has moved to UK from Holland. The Surrey-based centre is now up and running for dealerships throughout the continent as well as for UK Mitsubishi press users.
As the lead service partners for Europe, MPL will provide service training and support throughout the continent, including service management for new machines during the initial warranty period. The hands-on aspect of European service will be managed by MPL’s European Technical Service Director, Iain Moxon.
Commenting on the appointment, Mark Stribley, Joint Managing Director of MPL, said: “We have a strong track record of working with Mitsubishi products in UK since our appointment as a dealer back in 2010. We also bring B1 experience and expertise in sales, support, and marketing from our time spent in the industry.
In its new European role MPL will provide both technical support and technical training for dealers throughout Europe, including taking responsibility for warranty of new machines. The company will report directly to Japan.
“The Ryobi / Mitsubishi combination is a well thought through partnership. The companies have come together in the knowledge that the industry and the market have changed significantly due to the march of technology. In our opinion European press suppliers have yet to bite this bullet or to understand the true requirements of the market or the changes that will be needed in their businesses in order to meet those requirements,” added Mr Stribley.
