New Manitou dealer appointments

Manitou has announced a number of key dealer appointments for January 2020. R W Crawford Ltd is a well-established AGCO dealer covering Essex, Kent, Sussex and East Hampshire. The company takes on the Manitou Agricultural product range at all three locations which are in Chelmsford, Billingshurst and Ashford. Additionally, Crawford’s has agreed to work with Suffolk Agri Centre, near Bury St Edmunds, as a sub-dealer responsible all sales, and after-sales support in the county of Suffolk. All four branches attended extensive sales and service training courses, at Manitou, during December 2019 to ensure they are ready to support customers from January 2020. Spare parts and whole-goods stock was delivered during the first week of January.

Glyn Lloyd & Sons is appointed as the Manitou Agricultural and Construction dealer for North Wales. Like many small farmers, Glyn Lloyd has had to diversify to grow. Glyn established the machinery sales business in 1979 and is now the primary part of the Lloyd family business. Until now, the machinery sales business which is based in Abergele, has focussed on the construction machinery sector. The business sells and supports a range of construction machine products, the main one being Takeuchi mini excavators. Whilst the business sells many new machines per year, their focus is after-sales, priding themselves on market-leading customer support. This commitment, together with their agricultural heritage makes them ideally suited to sell and support Manitou Agricultural and Construction throughout North Wales.

Ryan Martin is appointed as ‘Compact Equipment Product’ (CEP) dealer for mid Wales. Manitou launched an extended range of CEP machines at LAMMA 2019. The compact machine range which includes skid steer loaders, tracked loaders, and articulated loaders, is ideally suited to the farming business in mid Wales. Ryan Martin founded his business in 2010 focussing on sales and after-sales support of used agricultural machinery. Today, the business sells and supports 150 used machines per year, from its base in Trefeglwys, Caerswsmost, mid Wales. Knowing the importance of materials handling in the region, Ryan had been looking for a supplier of product suitable for his customer base. The Manitou CEP fits that requirement perfectly and parts and machine stock started arriving in Trefeglyws during the first week of January.
