We are delighted to announce that we have opened our very own ScanStone owned premises in East Anglia. ScanStone Lakenheath was opened last month and the grand opening is to follow sometime later this year. We believe that Lakenheath is in a key area to the potato growing operation in East Anglia and the depot is strategically placed so that it will service the rest of Southern England and also Northern France where our market penetration is growing exponentially.
Our area and depot manager, Ashley Sismey has been with us now for over a year and he has brought with him excellent product knowledge on the service side. Ashley deals with day to day enquiries for ScanStone as well as active parts and machinery sales. He carries out demonstrations of products across the entire ScanStone range as well, all based out of Lakenheath where we have an entire service centre and parts department. Lakenheath is around 12,500 square feet and is equipped with offices, spare parts department, service / workshop area and also dry machine storage. The premises is on the North end of Lakenheath, on Station road where Niagri used to be until they moved.
We have already started stocking Lakenheath with spare parts and webs for the 2018 / 2019 season to give all our valued customer in East Anglia the best possible service and parts back up where they are operating many ScanStone machines, and in particular our award winning destoner range.

“We have already had outstanding and positive feedback from our customers in East Anglia and people are really excited about the new depot and what it is going to offer ScanStone customers in this area.” William Skea.
Ashley Sismey commented, “The opening of Lakenheath has made my job so much easier, I have a place to service machines, to stock parts and a general place to bring customers and farmers for discussions. The local farmers really appreciate our investment in them and in their area”.
