Denmark proves fertile ground for Colchester and Harrison lathes
600 UK have appointed their long standing Danish Colchester lathes distributor, Herstad and Piper to now manage distribution arrangements in Denmark for all manual and CNC lathes, including the Harrison lathe range as of 1 January 2015.
Herstad and Piper have a long established history, spanning more than 20 years with Colchester lathes, which are universally popular in both industrial and educational sectors. Denmark has been an important market for Colchester and Harrison with over 3000 manual and CNC lathes sold in recent years.
Niels Piper, Managing Director of Herstad and Piper said “Both Colchester and Harrison lathes have an excellent reputation for high quality manufactured machines, particularly the variable speed centre lathes. One of the key selling points for customers in Denmark is the fact that Colchester and Harrison lathes have the CE mark, as it gives them the confidence that they are buying a highly accurate, great value European built product. Additionally, Colchester and Harrison have always been well known for their ability to supply spare parts for older machines with a service that other manufacturers struggle to match.”
“Scandinavia has always seen strong demand for Colchester and Harrison lathes” says Howard Bamforth, 600 UK Sales Director “and we have always enjoyed a strong relationship with Niels and his excellent technical team at Herstad and Piper, so it seems the natural choice to extend our distribution agreement with them to cover our Harrison lathe range in Denmark too”.
