Scotts appoints RM Agricultural Engineering Ltd to support West Midlands growth

Scotts Precision Manufacturing Ltd has extended its distribution network with the appointment of a new sales and service agent to cover the West Midlands. The Boston-based manufacturer of vegetable harvesting and cleaning equipment officially named RM Agricultural Engineering Ltd this month.

Based near Leominster, Herefordshire RM Agri will offer Scotts full range of Trinity mowers, Microlift Pro fully mounted rakes and harvesters, Evolution separators and their latest Grimme GT170 rake conversion kits.

Derek Scott General Manager at Scott’s:

“We have worked with Rob and Marie Lloyd, the owners, for a number of years from their humble beginnings to what is a thriving and specialist business supporting their local root growers, it is very important to us to working with like-minded people with a clear focus on the root crop industry.”

“Rob’s experience in the potato business is second to none and we feel privileged to work alongside companies of this caliber.”

“We already have many Evolution separators and toppers in this area. With the growing demand, we are looking to build a long term future with Rob and his team.”

RM Agricultural Engineering Ltd was started in 2013 by Rob and Marie, with 20 years working as an engineer in the potato machinery business and with a young family around him, the timing was right.

2021 was a major milestone for the company becoming Dewulf’s official partnership with AgVantage UK Ltd for the West Midlands and Herefordshire.

With Dewulf now owning the popular Miedema brand, their experience of their product range has fitted in perfectly with our business. Scotts has always been the benchmark for vegetable cleaning systems with the Evolution Separator.

Without a doubt, the Trinity range of 2, 3, 4 and 6 row defoliators are already considered by far the best on the market and they are eager to promote their brand.

All Scott products are designed and manufactured at their brand new factory in Lincolnshire. Supporting a genuinely British product has some merit in this, which we know our customers will also find appealing.

The Scotts mattress topper range now includes seven models:

The Trinity 22B two-row defoliator is available separately or in combination with the folding rear unit, the Trinity 6000 (to provide a 6-row folding front/rear system), our best-selling model to date.

This is complemented by the Trinity 30B, which has a cutting width of 300cm, capable of handling three rows of 90cm or four of 75cm. Four more models have recently been added to the lineup to include the more affordable Trinity 54B fixed 6 row with end tow, the folding Trinity 54F 6 row aft and the twin rotor Trinity 36B fixed 4 row.

The appointment of RM Agri follows a recent announcement that Scotts is now working closely with Vegcraft near Forfar in Scotland and with Yorkshire & Humber to provide service and support to customers in these 2 counties.
