Scotts Precision Manufacturing Ltd has extended its distribution network with the appointment of a new sales and service agent to cover the West Midlands in the UK. The Boston manufacturer of vegetable harvesting and cleaning equipment formally appointed RM Agricultural Engineering Ltd this month, the company announced in a press release.
Based near Leominster, Herefordshire, RM Agri will be offering Scotts’ full range of Trinity toppers, Microlift Pro fully mounted windrowers and harvesters, Evolution separators and their latest Grimme GT170 Windrower conversion kits.
“We have worked with Rob and Marie Lloyd the owners, for a number of years, from their humble beginnings to what is today, a thriving and specialist business supporting their local root crop growers, it’s very important for us to work with like- minded people with a clear focus on the root crop industry, Rob’s background in potatoes is second to none and we feel privileged to work alongside businesses of this calibre, says Derek Scott Managing Director at Scotts.
“We have a large number of Evolution separators and haulm toppers already in this area. With the demand growing, we are looking to build a long term future with Rob and his team.”
RM Agricultural Engineering Ltd was launched in 2013 by Rob and Marie. With 20 years working as an engineer in the Potato machinery trade and with a young family around him, the timing felt just right.
2021 was a major step forward for the business by becoming the official Dewulf partnership with AgVantage UK Ltd for the West Midlands and Herefordshire. With Dewulf now in ownership of the popular Miedema brand, the experience of their product range sat extremely well within RM Agri’s business.
Scotts were always the benchmark when it came to vegetable cleaning systems with the Evolution separator. Without doubt the Trinity range of 2,3,4 and 6 row Haulm toppers are already viewed as the best on the market by quite some distance and we are looking forward to promoting their brand. All of Scotts products are designed and manufactured at their brand new factory in Lincolnshire, Supporting a truly British product has a certain kudos about it which we know our customers will find appealing too.
Scotts’ range of toppers now comprises seven models
The Trinity 22B two-row topper is available separately or in combination with the folding rear unit, the Trinity 6000 (to provide a folding 6 row front/rear mounted system), our best selling model to date. This is complemented by the Trinity 30B, which has a 300cm cutting width, capable of handling either three 90cm or four 75cm rows. Four more models have been added to the range recently to include the more affordable Trinity 54B fixed 6 row with end tow, Trinity 54F folding rear mounted 6 row and Trinity 36B twin rotor fixed 4 row.
The appointment of RM Agri follows a recent announcement that Scotts are now working closely with Vegcraft near Forfar Scotland and with Yorkshire & Humber to provide service and support to customers in these 2 counties.
