CORE VALUES AND GOALS
The company and staff live by a common set of core values namely; Respect, Integrity, Innovation, Teamwork, Accountability, Passion and Service excellence.
We strive to supply excellent after sale service from our workshop facilities. The development of the Geraldton and Moora facilities are now complete and we have drawn up plans for a new workshop in Carnamah. We have the specialised equipment to repair and service all the equipment we sell. Our mobile service vehicles also allow us to service and repair equipment on our customers' farms. We further strive to employ highly trained service personnel and are dedicated to training apprentices for the future.
In preparation for expansion, the company has been in a phase of consolidation with South African holding company, AFGRI Holdings Ltd. As a part of this process the name T & H Walton Stores Pty Ltd was replaced with AFGRI Equipment Pty Ltd in February 2013.
AFGRI Holdings Ltd's relationship with our company began when it acquired what was then called T & H Walton Stores in 2004. Since acquisition there has been significant investment in the infrastructure of the business, with efficient systems being installed and operational facilities developed and expanded. Our company now runs as a corporate structure with the necessary policies, procedures and financial backing.
The synergies between the two countries will enable us to utilise AFGRI Holdings Ltd's dedicated training team as well as their specialists to improve service to our customers. With the backing of the holding company AFGRI Equipment is also well positioned for planned expansion.
The alignment with the holding company saw the appointment of Patrick Roux to our Board of Directors. Patrick currently controls 17 large dealerships in South Africa, Zimbabwe, Ghana and Australia and has 90 full qualified technicians reporting to him.
Gollie Coetzee was also appointed to the Board of Directors and comes with a proven track record of branch manager for 6 years and 20 years John Deere experience in Sales and Parts.
