CRJ Services and Matpro merge into single brand

Recycling equipment hire company CRJ Services Ltd and distributor Matpro Machinery Ltd have announced the amalgamation of the two companies into a single brand.

As of 1 April, the Matpro Machinery brand, which distributes international brands such as HAAS Recycling, Steelweld and Ecostar in the UK and Ireland, will cease and will instead function as the sales arm of CRJ, ‘CRJ Sales’.

This change follows two and a half years of Matpro Machinery operating alongside CRJ Services, which saw both companies pool physical and human resources to bolster their offerings. By operating as a single company, CRJ will be able to streamline internal processes, which in turn will allow the company to meet customers’ demands more effectively. As part of the transition, the Matpro website and contact channels will all be automatically redirected to their new destination.

The CRJ brand now encompasses five sub-brands to reflect the company’s different business streams: CRJ Hire, CRJ Sales, CRJ Parts, CRJ Service Support and CRJ Organics.

Commenting on the amalgamation, Ben McQuaid, Director at Matpro Machinery, said: “Since Matpro’s inception in 2014, it has always been our aim to keep our business structure lean and controlled; allowing us to offer our products and services at value. We feel it’s important to become as efficient as possible by consolidating both companies into a single brand, encapsulating all of our business streams.”

Rob Symons, Director at CRJ Services, added: “We are all very excited to take this next step in CRJ’s development. Following the successful partnership with Matpro, it was the obvious progression to incorporate both companies into a single brand. Both our customers and employees will feel the benefit of the simplified arrangement.”
