MST expands Birtley parts storage site

UK earthmoving operators now have even greater access to a large range of tracks and wear parts, following MST’s announcement that it has extended its stockholding facilities at its headquarters in Birtley, County Durham.

The new facility introduces a further 25,000 square feet of stockholding to the site’s already sizeable 100,000 square feet. The expansion forms a key part of MST’s growth plans which have only gathered pace since the company became an official part of one of the world’s largest spare parts manufacturers, the ITR Group, in 2019. It includes an investment of some £150,000 in racking and new forklifts, as well as a significant upgrade to the company’s packaging area.

Rory Whitehall, MST’s Managing Director said, “The ITR Group holds some £200 million of stock, globally. As their sole authorised UK distributor, we are able to offer our customers, access to a range of aftermarket spare parts that is simply unrivalled anywhere in the world.

"Extending our stockholding in this way allows us to bring in, and store, significantly higher levels of stock. The obvious benefit to customers is that they get their parts much quicker than if we needed to ship them to the UK; added to that, we are in a stronger position to mitigate some of the external challenges that the country, indeed many parts of Europe, have faced over recent months.”
