Based in Adare, County Limerick, SAMCO is best known for manufacturing mulch film and associated application machinery for the arable and horticulture sectors, alongside selling a range of other agricultural machinery. From 1st January 2022, the business will also sell the full range of Case IH tractors, harvesting equipment and telehandlers as well as supplying parts and providing a comprehensive after-sales service. The business also plans to open a second depot in Tralee, County Kerry in early 2022.
The family business was started in 1997 and is now run by father and sons, Sam, Robert and Matthew Shine, employing over 50 staff and exporting to 25 countries.
“We’re very excited to be adding the Case IH brand to our business,” says Sam Shine. “Our family has used Case IH machinery for many years and it’s a well-respected brand in this area that will complement our existing product range. We started business as dairy farmers, and then agricultural contractors before moving into machinery and work hard to use this experience to provide the best solutions for our customers in an ever-changing industry. The opening of an additional depot in County Kerry will enable us to service an even greater area of customers and we look are very much looking forward to taking delivery of our first Case IH machines in the New Year.”
Commenting on the development, Jon May, Case IH Dealer Relationship Manager for the UK and Ireland said:
“SAMCO is very well-known in the Irish agricultural industry and is an excellent addition to the Case IH dealer network, covering an area that was previously open for the brand. They are a strong business that I am confident will deliver a professional service to existing and new customers in the area. Case IH continues to be the brand of choice for a large number of Irish farmers and we look forward to working with SAMCO to strengthen our sales of our products in this part of the country in the future.”
