Derbyshire electric tug manufacturer MasterMover is expanding its horizons across the Channel, with a new sales and service office near Paris.

The company, which has its international headquarters in Ashbourne has opened the office in the Bailly-Romainvilliers region.

From there, MasterMover is providing sales support, a parts facility, site evaluations and demonstrations, as well as a servicing centre.

The company already has offices in America, Brazil and Germany, as well as agents and dealers serving 29 countries. Engineered to move loads of all weights and sizes across commercial, industrial and public environments, the tugs are used by leading brands and organisations around the world due to their ability to ensure load handling is managed safely and efficiently.

Andy Owen, managing director of MasterMover, said: “France is an important market for us and we want to be in a position to support the customers as best we can by setting up a local office.

“MasterMover has been selling in the country for 15 years and in that time we’ve built up a dedicated team, based in France and also at our UK headquarters.

“We are now in a strong position to expand our offer to clients.”
