a brief story of molson

Business flourished and by 2001 the company had outgrown its initial rented premises in Yatton and moved to it's own purpose built yard on a 7 acre site in Smoke Lane at Avonmouth, near the M4/M5 axis, (since renamed the Smoke Lane Industrial Estate).
Currently Molson stands as one of the largest suppliers of Korean and Japanese built excavators in Europe and continues to source a wide range of equipment including dump trucks, dozers, demolition rigs and wheeled loaders. In 2010 Molson became Hyundai's biggest dealer in the whole of Europe.
