Valtra’s dealership coverage of the UK continues to widen, with new distributors being appointed and existing territories enlarged across an area stretching from Cornwall to Scotland. The main additions for the beginning of 2018 focus on the South West of England and the South of Wales.
Newcomers to the Valtra network include A. J Davies & Sons at Pencader, in Carmarthenshire, covering all the South West Wales area. With a very strong customer base in both agriculture and construction Gary Davies of J Davies commented “we look forward to getting the product out in the field to show off the new 4th generation, these Valtra models will be able to satisfy the customer needs we see in South Wales and fit to our company portfolio perfectly”.
The brand’s presence now boosts the profile of B. Redlynch Agriculture Engineering Ltd. with support for the Valtra brand available from their depot near Bruton as well as the new depot near Salisbury in Wiltshire. The company will operate in Somerset and Wiltshire in an area bounded by Bruton, to the south round past Blandford Forum to the east and up past their depot near Salisbury and in to Wiltshire.
Over on the other side of Somerset, C. Bigwoods Agri Ltd. at Taunton are the latest company to take on the Valtra brand. Managing Director Keith Bigwood is excited about the new addition to their business stating “we have watched the development of the Valtra brand over the recent years and with the introduction of the 4th generation models, and in particular the new SmartTouch operator interface, we will be able to offer a solution for almost every application that our customers need in Somerset. We are pleased to be able to offer the brand and see this as a really positive move forward for both companies”.
D. Ross Farm Machinery in Hereford and Worcester is now lining up the Valtra range alongside those of the company’s existing Fendt and Massey Ferguson franchises. The base for Valtra is at its Ross on Wye depot and will service existing and new customers throughout the area.
In addition, E. Alan Snow Agricultural Engineers Ltd., based at Holsworthy in North Devon, has extended its sales coverage with the appointment of a sub-dealership to service the Souths Hams area in the west of the county.
Gareth Jones, Ares Sales Manager for the West of England and Wales, believes these new appointments are evidence of the company’s commitment to those parts of the country not previously served by the dealer network.
“We’ve worked closely with our existing and new dealerships in the region to widen the Valtra coverage to very nearly 100 per cent”, he reports. “It’s clear that more and more British and Irish farmers are realising just how good these tractors are and how well they can fit their businesses.”
