The British Agricultural and Garden Machinery Association.

Our site provides an introduction to and information about what we offer and links to BAGMA’s parent group bira where our member benefits and services can be viewed as well as information and links to industry partners and relevant industry bodies.

The British Agricultural and Garden Machinery Association (BAGMA), is the dealer trade organisation for agricultural, garden and ground care machinery dealers working within the Land-based Engineering Sector and was first established in 1917 as the National Association of Agricultural Engineers and Implement Dealers and has progressed through the last ninety or so years becoming BAGMA in 1972. BAGMA is now a Specialist Division of  the British Independent Retailers Association (bira).

The Land-based Engineering Sector has over 3000 dealers with in excess of 25.000 staff in an industry sector that is worth over £4 billion a year.
One of the main roles of BAGMA over the many years has been to ensure that new people are drawn into the land based industry sector and that they have access to training and apprentice programmes to ensure that they are fully trained to meet the developing technology that our industry uses, enjoys and benefits from. To this end BAGMA works with industry and the education system to ensure that there is always new talent coming into industry and that the existing talent has a clear career pathway to follow.

BAGMA provides its members with a comprehensive package of benefits such as legal aide, special retail credit card rates, business services, access to direct buying, a host of financial services and benefits through its group bank bira finance, industry specific insurance packages from bira insurance as well as bespoke industry training courses and an information department for member support.

BAGMA represents the interests of its members and industry at a government level and with suppliers and manufacturers and campaigns to improve the trading conditions for machinery dealers within the UK by working together with other industry partners both in the UK and through the machinery dealer’s trade association umbrella group in Europe, CLIMMAR.

BAGMA and bira would like to encourage members to make the most of their membership and to take part in BAGMA and bira activities that are intended to help develop dealers and industry in general in successful harmony.
