Paul Birch, Malahide’s sales director, says, “Malahide is delighted to have joined the Spartanics team. Spartanics shares our goals of producing superior machinery, backed by superior customer service. With more people, more resources, and an array of complimentary technical skills, we have every confidence that this new structure will advance the equipment and well-serve the needs of Malahide’s client family. Ian and I both look forward to working with Spartanics throughout the transition, and well into an exciting new future of Malahide.”
