EIMA 2014

Mandy visited the Argo Tractors Factory and EIMA 2014 in Northern Italy recently as a guest of Landini UK along with other dealers from Scotland and Northern England.  The trip took in the main assembly facility in Fabbrico where Landini have their headquarters and also the compact tractor and cab manufacturing facilities in Luzzara.  These towns are in the province of Emilia Romagna, famous for Ferrari, Lamborghini, Maserati among others and the Landini brand is up there as an icon of Italian Agriculture.  The factories are very impressive – immaculate and highly efficient with a dedicated workforce.

EIMA 2014 is one of the largest agricultural shows in the world and is held annually in Bologna.  This is where the manufacturers can really show off their products and Argo Tractors are no exception.  The whole show is jaw dropping and Landini unveiled their 6 and 7 series tractors in a new metallic blue which is to celebrate 130 years of Landini Tractors.  They also showed off the 7-215 which recently completed a 130 hour endurance rally and the winner of Italy’s tractor pulling competition.  There was a complete LED wall with changing imagery relating to Argo Tractors and a 3d area which also featured an amazing hologram of a tractor where your hand was programmed to move the hologram around!

This trip highlighted the commitment of Landini to grow the brand in the UK and with the latest models encompassing the latest trends and technology in tractor engineering, the future is looking very bright.

Zetor UK – Appointment of Retail Salesman

Following on from the recent Press Release from Zetor UK regarding Mr. Gordon Hickie’s appointment as Zetor Retail Salesman, we would like to give Gordon a warm welcome to the Zetor Family and clarify what this means for our customers.
Zetor UK have been so impressed by the growth of Zetor sales in our area and the excellent relationship we have with our customers that they would like this success to spread into areas where they have had little or no coverage.
Gordon will be focusing on these other areas and working in partnership with ourselves to ensure that future prospects are given the best possible service from initial enquiry to after sales. Any tractor that Gordon sells will be supplied and serviced by Marrs of Methlick Ltd until such time as Zetor UK have service facilities in place in some strategic locations.
We would like to take this opportunity to say thank you to each and every one of you for your loyalty and re-assure you that you will continue to receive the same level of service and attention from Marrs of Methlick. Furthermore, we will now be carrying stock of the full range of Zetor Tractors.
This move will further strengthen Zetor’s coverage in Scotland and we see Gordon as an excellent addition to our team.
