The recent YAMS show marked the first public event for The Russell Group representing Pottinger in Yorkshire. The appointment of The Russell Group’s five Yorkshire depots stocking the full range of Pottinger machinery as of the 1st January 2018, comes hot on the heels of the appointment of The Russell Group’s Hallmark Tractors depots, located in the Midlands during the summer of 2017.
“It was clear after talking with Paul Russell, that we both as family owned companies shared many core values and principles. As such working together will offer great benefits to our existing and new customers” comments Shaun Groom, General Manager at Pottinger UK. “The enthusiasm, professionalism and commitment of The Russell Group will ensure Pottinger customers receive excellent local support from the well positioned depots across Yorkshire”.
“We are delighted to be representing the Pottinger brand in Yorkshire. It quickly became apparent that Pottinger share similar values to ourselves and their focus on the importance of after sales back up is paramount” states Paul Russell.
“Our ability to stock and demonstrate machines is enhanced through the introduction of the brand at both Hallmark Tractors and Russells providing more choices to customers. The quality of the products is excellent and a visit to the production facilities in Austria reinforced our view that the Pottinger brand will continue to develop over the next few years providing a full range of arable and grassland machinery.
A comprehensive training programme has been provided by Pottinger UK to ensure all our sales, parts and service people are ready for the season ahead. There is a significant number of Pottinger machines within Yorkshire and we have been delighted at the level of interest we have already received from new and existing customers”.
