ShearCore, Superior, Wisconsin, has announced that Murray Plant, a United Kingdom-based Blue Group company, has been named the 2019 Fortress Worldwide Distributor of the Year. ShearCore, which is a Superior, Wisconsin-based division of Exodus Machines, designs and manufactures Fortress excavator-mounted hydraulic attachments.
According to the company, Murray Plant purchased a record-breaking number of Fortress products in 2019, making it the No. 1 distributor of Fortress products worldwide.
“There is no doubt that the skyrocketing success for Fortress in the United Kingdom is in large part due to the professional team at Murray Plant,” Bruce Bacon, president of Exodus Machines and ShearCore, says.
Kevin Boreen, CEO of Exodus Machines, echoed Bacon’s remarks, stating, “We could not have asked for a better partner than Murray Plant/Blue Group to introduce the Fortress family of products to the U.K. market. We look forward to continued success for many, many years to come.”
“We at Murray Plant have been delighted with the Fortress product line," Fergal O’Neill, sales director of Murray Plant, says. "The world-leading pedigree and quality of the range on both shears and concrete tools have been phenomenal. We now have customers investing in their second, third and in some cases fourth units because of their experience with the product."
