Telestack Omagh Equipment & Cooper Form Partnership for UK Port Market

Cooper Specialised Handling, the UK and Ireland’s leading independently owned port equipment supply business has announced a new partnership / Agent agreement to represent the interests of Telestack across Great Britain for both the Port / Inland Terminals and Scrap Industry.

Telestack has been established for over 30 years in the material handling industry from their base in Omagh, Northern Ireland. Telestack specialises in the complete design, manufacture, installation, and commissioning of mobile, bulk material handling conveying systems and have a global proven record in a range of applications including the Ports & Inland terminals, Quarrying / Mining industries, Stockyard management, Power stations, rail yards and many other industries.

Cooper has added the Telestack product to an already impressive portfolio of equipment that includes forklifts, laden and empty container handlers, reach stackers, container movers, translifters, log stackers, material handlers and hydraulic cranes. The intention is for the Telestack range to complement a complete handling supply portfolio. David Cooper, Executive Director explained “We have come a long way in the last 8 years when our entry into the port related market was geared around forklift supply only. We recognised then of the need to become a complete supplier and embrace an approach to that of a solutions provider which fits well with the consultative approach we have to business” Cooper continues “Our supply partners are carefully selected over many years. In the case of Telestack we recognise their market-positioning as well as their solutions-led approach to business. In this latter case, we share many similar ideologies and business models”.

Carl Donnelly, International Sales Manager of Telestack picked up on this theme of shared ideologies in seeking a solutions-orientated approach. “The network, relationships and market positioning of Cooper within the ports and other associated sectors is widely regarded and, even in these early stages of our relationship we have identified synergies where we share creative thinking in solving customer’s handling requirements”.  Carl also stated that “Cooper’s business model and route to market fits well with Telestack’s Strategy, this represents a new dynamic approach and fresh opportunity for both parties”.

The new supply agreement commences immediately and will form part of Cooper Handling’s new website which will showcase the Company’s wide scope of handling solutions later in the Spring 2021.
