We are excited to announce that Johnston Tractors Limited will add the Fendt franchise to the Valtra franchise already held at our Carlisle, Penrith and Dumfries branches. In early 2021, we will become the new dealer for Fendt across our existing Valtra territory in Cumbria – and we will be extending our territory for both Fendt and Valtra in Dumfries & Galloway.
The addition of Fendt to our dealership portfolio was announced on 1st October by AGCO who are making changes to their network across Northern England and South West Scotland.
The changes will be fully in place by April next year, but we are already gearing up, training, and working with Fendt to make it a smooth transition for existing and potential Fendt customers.
Martin Hamer, Fendt National Sales Manager; UK, IE, NL said, “It is a pleasure to welcome Johnston’s to the Fendt dealer family. This long-established business has the experience and knowledge to represent Fendt and offer excellent customer service and support. We are looking forward to a long and successful partnership that will see Johnston’s work with us to offer a broad range of Fendt products.”
Johnston’s Managing Director, Howard Johnston said “We see this a very positive move for the business and our customers and welcome the opportunity to work with and represent Fendt in our territories.
“Farming is changing, and innovative technology is leading the way to help farmers overcome everyday challenges. We believe the Fendt brand will be popular with our customers and we are looking forward to introducing them to the wide range of machines available.
“At the same time, we will be able to offer existing Fendt customers the wealth of experience and customer support that we deliver on a daily basis.
“Sitting alongside the Valtra franchise, and the vast range of farm machinery from Kuhn, we’re feeling confident we can offer an even better product and service to the farming community.”
