MOBA UK Appoints New Irish Distributor

MOBA has announced that Logic Fleet Management Ltd has been appointed as its distributor in the Republic of Ireland for the company’s sophisticated bin weighing and ID solutions.

MOBA’s UK office will continue to support the distributor with both sales and technical support going forward.

Logic Fleet Management has already installed more than twenty systems across the Irish market and this number will soon rapidly grow as new legislation, coming into force from July 2015, will mandate that all waste collectors will need to use a pay-by-weight system of calculating bin collection charges.

According to Ian Lewis, general manager of MOBA UK & Ireland: “Over the course of this year and next we will see a rush of demand from waste contractors for on-board bin weighing and ID solutions and our move to appoint Logic Fleet Management will ensure we have the best partner in the Irish market to represent us. We believe their combined reputation, experience and knowledge will help us grow quickly in this demanding market”.

Michael Gray, managing director of Logic Fleet Management, knows that with the new legislation, now less than a year away, waste operators will be searching the market for suitable solutions.

“Our experience tells that, whilst cost-effective solutions are critical, what is most important for our Irish customers is quality, accuracy and above all durability”, explained Michael.

They came up with the concept and EPIC made the idea work on their vehicles using full vehicle wraps and quick change graphics.

Following the RWM, these vehicles can be seen around the country.


All Systems Go For ISS In Northern Ireland

Coventry-based vehicle safety technology specialists, Innovative Safety Systems Ltd (ISS), have announced McCreath Taylor as their sole distributor and installation agent in Northern Ireland.

McCreath Taylor is headed up by David and Peter Johnston who have over 80 years experience in the waste management business in Northern Ireland and work with the majority of local councils there.

Gavin Thoday, director ISS said: “We are delighted to have McCreath Taylor on board as our agents in Northern Ireland. They are an impressive organisation with the expertise and infrastructure to supply, install and service all our products.”

ISS provides the full range of safety and lighting products such as reversing radars, CCTV camera systems, Hard Disk Recording, warning beacons and LED lighting packages.

The company recently launched *Cyclear®, a new and effective Cyclist Warning Safety Device, which is being readily adopted by local authorities and private waste contractors across the UK, and is now available in Northern Ireland via McCreath Taylor.

ISS RX3 DVR Hard Disk Recording equipment was installed to a Scarab sweeper for Derry Council last August, the first authority in Northern Ireland to use the technology.

Since then McCreath Taylor has fitted the equipment to the authority’s new fleet of 8 sweepers, comprising two 15 tonne Scarab Magnums on a DAF chassis and six 12 tonne Scarab merlin road sweepers, also on a DAF chassis.

David Johnston, Managing Director, McCreath Taylor said: “There is an every increasing demand for this kind of equipment to be fitted to sweepers to assist councils in verifying claims made for damages reportedly caused during sweeping operations and for investigating claims against the service.”
