We design, manufacture and supply specialist equipment for the fruit, vineyard and hop industry; from machines to prepare the land for planting, right through production to storage, grading and packing of fruit into boxes for sale. Our bespoke design and build table-top strawberry sprayers lead the way in this sector of the spraying market. In 1991 we purpose-built our own site to suit our business. We installed modern equipment and tools to cope with our current and future servicing, repairing and manufacturing work. We have a large spare parts store holding a wide range of parts for most orchard machinery and equipment.

Year Founded:
1974

We are a small family business that was set up in 1974 by Nick and Barbara Seymour. Over the years the business has slowly but steadily evolved from a ‘man with a van’ to a key part of the fruit and vine industry.  We are proud to have now been in business for over forty years and have been Fendt tractor dealers for more than thirty years with the narrow 200 series being our speciality.

Our aim being to keep ‘down’ time on your equipment to a minimum. In recent years we have added an additional workshop and storage building for new and used machinery allowing us to keep machinery protected from the elements and preventing it from deteriorating in any way. This has also meant we are able to hold in stock a larger range of new machinery, thus saving the manufacturers’ delivery delays.

Our expansion will continue in early 2017 with a further building for tractor and machinery storage to hold more equipment – there is never enough room!

We are proud to continually look to innovations and the latest machinery technology and with that are very pleased to be the UK Supplier of the ProbotIQ X-Pert autonomous driverless system as an add-on for Fendt Vario tractors. Increasing efficiency is key to moving forward for all of us.

The directors are Nick and Barbara Seymour, along with their daughter Claire who employ seven full time and two part time members of staff. Do have a look at our ‘Meet the Team’ page to put a face to the name of the people on the end of the ‘phone here!
