Ross Agri is a family business run by Martin, Bill and Ethel Ross.
Over the years, Ross Agri has grown from humble beginnings into one of the leading suppliers of new and used tractors in Scotland and the UK.
In 1972, Bill and Ethel Ross took out a loan to begin a farming machine hire business to supplement Bill’s income as a telephone engineer. Hiring farm equipment to local farmers proved to be very popular. Business flourished and by 1976, Bill and Ethel had added agricultural contracting to their services. Five years later the company developed further when the couple bought over a spare parts business. Ross Agri was developing an enviable reputation for problem solving and reliability for their growing customer base.
This reputation was a significant factor when Ross Agri attracted the prestigious Valtra tractor franchise in 1984, a move which was complemented by the Fendt franchise in 1988.
As brands, both Valtra and Fendt are renowned for their reliability, versatility and longevity, qualities which correspond with Ross Agri’s ethos. Securing these franchises had a major impact on the development of the company as a real force in the world of tractor suppliers in the UK.
The business expanded further in 1996 when Bill and Ethel bought over a steel fabrication business and again in 2000, when Martin, a precision engineer, became a partner in the business and established the machine shop.
In 2003, the company opened a second branch at Turriff to cope with the increasing demand for their services and today the business continues to thrive.
The Ross family have always sought to expand and grow their business in a manageable, sustainable way. They are proud of their reputation for excellent service and reliability.
