Birdhill, Co.Tipperary-based machinery distributor McHale Plant Sales is predicting growth next year. 
Noting what he calls ‘a detectable rise’ in enquiries in those sectors in which the company sells products, the company’s managing director Michael McHale said ‘we are looking forward to a busy 2013.’
In agricultural machinery, where the company represents Zetor tractors, the arrival in January of a new, 4-wheel drive, 80hp Zetor Major tractor at a competitive VAT-inclusive price of around EUR30,000 is expected to bring about an increase in sales as will a realignment of their dealer network currently underway with appointments planned in a number of key farming areas in which Zetor does not currently have a presence.
Other developments that the company believes will drive growth next year include its recent appointment to represent the Italian-made Merlo range of telescopic handlers and agricultural attachment manufacturers SIP and UNIA. 
In civil engineering and heavy construction - where McHale is the exclusive distributor for Japanese-made Komatsu excavators, wheel loaders and bulldozers - promised infrastructural investment by Government and an increase in smaller road and environmental projects are expected to fuel an expansion in unit sales. This growth in major civil works is likely also to have a beneficial impact on sales of rock crushers and screening equipment which the company also represents.
Likely to underpin this expectation is an expected growth in the level of replacement demand and the recent introduction by Komatsu of a new more fuel-efficient hybrid excavator.
‘With its reduced noise and emissions levels, this new unit is designed for urban and night work in confined spaces or city streets and for environmentally sensitive projects such as river and canal dredging’ Michael McHale said.
