Refuse collection vehicle manufacturer Geesinknorba has appointed MacPac Refuse Bodies as its agent for Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland.

Geesinknorba announced the appointment of MacPac Refuse Bodies as its Northern Ireland agent at the Northern Ireland Waste Expo in Belfast in October. 

Based in County Antrim, MacPac is a manufacturer and supplier of side-loading refuse collection vehicles and associated products to the public and private sectors across the UK. The appointment will see MacPac become the point of contact for sales, parts, and servicing for all Geesinknorba’s Irish customers. Macpac will be responsible for building the company’s presence across Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland.

All Geesinknorba’s products will be available to customers in Northern Ireland through MacPac, including its ground-breaking all-electric Li-On Power Pro RCV, the new Norba N4, and the popular GPMIV.

Colin McMorine, Regional Business Manager for Geesinknorba, said: ‘We are delighted to announce that MacPac will become Geesinknorba’s agent in Northern Ireland. MacPac is the ideal partner for our brand. The business is well established in the industry and works closely with local authority customers. As manufacturers, they understand what we do.

'We are looking forward to good things from this relationship.’

‘Geesinknorba is a well-known name across Ireland and Northern Ireland. We are very proud to be associated with such a strong brand, and we are confident that we can continue to build up Geesinknorba’s presence in Northern Ireland,’ said MacPac’s Business Development Manager Liam Regan.
