Claydon Drills, has appointed Thurlow Nunn Standen Ltd, to handle sales and service of Claydon Hybrid drills, TerraStar cultivators and Cambridge Rolls in Norfolk and Suffolk, together with parts of Cambridgeshire and North Essex.
Having previously sold direct to farmers in these areas, with service and support provided from their factory near Newmarket in Suffolk, Claydon Drills say that the new distribution arrangement underlines their high regard for Thurlow Nunn Standen.
The agricultural division of the Thurlow Nunn Group, TNS is based at Littleport in Cambridgeshire. With additional branches at Attleborough, Hinderclay and Sculthorpe in Norfolk, together with Kennet and Melton in Suffolk, the company is one of the leading agricultural machinery distributors in Europe, offering a complete range of sales, servicing and parts to farming businesses in these areas.
Announcing the new agreement Spencer Claydon, Commercial Director, stated: “The appointment of TNS represents a significant change in terms of the way that we do business on our ‘home turf’. We already have more than 100 units of Claydon equipment operating in the TNS trading area and with farming businesses increasingly looking to reduce their production costs the well-proven Claydon System offers a very attractive alternative to expensive traditional methods of establishing combinable crops. With many European machinery manufacturers raising prices to compensate for the fall in the value of Sterling since the UK voted to leave the European Union, Claydon products offer even greater value for money.”
Chris Tew, Sales Director of TNS, adds: “We are delighted to be working with Claydons because, like them, we are a well-established family business and take great pride in delivering high quality products and service to our customers. The Claydon range provides an excellent fit with our business and is increasingly relevant to farmers in our trading area. We will be selling Claydon products through all of our branches and have a 3m Hybrid mounted drill, 6m TerraStar light cultivator and 7.5m Straw Harrow available for demonstration.”
