Gordons is now responsible for sales and servicing of the Doosan crawler, wheeled and mini/midi excavator, wheeled loader and articulated dump truck ranges in these areas.

Doosan regional manager Kim Dudley said: “We were impressed by Gordons’ reputation and focus on the aftermarket and their strong desire to grow their construction equipment business and customer base.

Gordons has already won orders from various customers for machines including DX27Z, DX35Z, DX62R-3 and DX85R-3 excavators as well as larger 14-tonne DX140LC-5 and several 21-tonne DX225LC-5 machines.

Gordons sales director Kevin Fraser said it was a “tremendous opportunity” for the company. He said: “We currently employ 85 staff across our six depots and we have dedicated sales and aftermarket staff for the Doosan range already in place, working out of the four depots at Dumfries, Castle Douglas, Castle Kennedy and Whauphill covering our new Doosan area, with a Doosan trained service engineer based in Cumbria to serve Cumbria and the Scottish Borders.”
