Marrs of Methlick began life as a Satellite Branch of Marrs of Burrelton. Marrs of Burrelton having been started in Burrelton, Perthshire in 1964 by Jim Cameron and his wife, Geraldine, with the Nuffield Agency. In the years that followed, there came Leyland, Zetor and Landini with a branch, Marrs of Inverness in Ballintore, Inverness in 1985 and one in Methlick in 1999 due to the retirement of Stanley Partridge leaving a vacancy in Aberdeenshire for Zetor. Marrs were fortunate to obtain the services of Ian Johnstone as Service Engineer, who had previously been with Stanley Partridge.
In October, 2004, after 40 years in business, Jim and Geraldine decided to retire and the Business closed in Burrelton and in Inverness. Gerard, their son, who himself was a time-served Engineer decided to retain the Methlick Branch himself, forming the Company “Marrs of Methlick Ltd”. He retained the Zetor and Landini Franchises with the addition of the Dieci Forklift which serves both the Agricultural and Construction Trades. Also added to this was the list of Machinery Agencies that Marrs had dealt with over the years.
