ScanStone Potato Systems are delighted to announce their latest dealer development program for the south west of England.
Cornwall Farm Machinery (CFM) has been appointed the new official dealer for Cornwall and Devon for the complete ScanStone product and parts range.
CFM will be the go to place for all potato farmers’ needs with our extensive range of products, ranging from the bed makers, award winning bed tillers, award winning destoners, vegetable windrowers and potato harvesters.
Pictured, from left to right is Steve Edmond, Sales manager at CFM, Rob Hattam, GM at CFM, William Skea, Sales manager at ScanStone and Ashley Sismey, Area manager at ScanStone.
Parts and service will also be through CFM now with an extensive parts back up being stocked into both CFM depots for the coming spring season.
Demonstrations of machinery will be handled by Steve Edmond and supported by the factory area manager, Ashley Sismey.
This new relationship comes at an exciting time for both companies where they are both showing signs of advancement in retail and service coverage, firstly with CFM approaching their big new addition with their Carland Cross depot north of Truro which offers fantastic development throughout Cornwall and into areas of Devon with the ScanStone range.
ScanStone Potato Systems have also made an exciting addition this year with the opening of the Lakenheath premises which will service the whole of Southern England and Northern France, offering a same day service for emergency parts rather than overnight from Scotland.
William Skea, ScanStone Sales Manager commented: “We have been a year or two completing plans in Cornwall and the South west for our product range and at times this has been frustrating, knowing that we have an excellent product which suits the market well but not having a suitable outlet for this product which offers key support and sales. Historically with ScanStone and Reekie products we have been market leaders in the South West with our web destoners, sadly this has slipped away but together with CFM we hope to regain market share.”
Rob Hattam, General Manager of Cornwall Farm Machinery is also enthusiastic with the new potato equipment range, “Having done my own research with some close customers, it is clear that the ScanStone range is the way forward and certainly a reliable product which potato farmers in Cornwall want to see more of.”
