The manufacturer, which was acquired by Winfield Engineering in 2009 and is primarily known for its mini crushers, recently signed a partnership deal with France-based equipment dealer Lomater.

A family-run business, Lomater sells and rents construction equipment to contractors in the country’s central and north-central regions. 

Its new partnership will see it add a selection of Red Rhino’s small and large crushers and screeners, with operating weights from around 1,740 kg (3,800 lb) to 120,000 kg (265,000 lb), to its portfolio.

Lesley Perrin, Sales Manager at Red Rhino, said: “We’re always looking for new distribution partners around the world who see the value in stocking our products and understand the benefits they bring to construction and demolition companies - both in terms of their projects and for the wider environment.

“Lomater is a reputable name within the plant industry in Europe and a trusted place for businesses to source the latest equipment. We cannot wait to see how this partnership evolves over time and look forward to establishing a long and mutually beneficial relationship.”

In recent years Red Rhino has experienced “significant growth” and has attracted new distributors in Europe, Asia, North America, Canada, and Australia.

President Stephane Spreder, President of new dealer Lomater, said: “We were searching for a quality partner in the UK to establish a long-term relationship with, and we were already aware of the manufacturing quality of Red Rhino.

“Following thorough research, we felt that Simon Winfield and his team were the ideal partner - with great people who are clear in their relationships, efficient in their actions and aware of the needs and expectations of users.”
