Grange Machinery expands in New Zealand

  • Grange Machinery Ltd has appointed Carrfields as the importer and distributor of its range for New Zealand

A family-run company based in Holderness, East Yorkshire, Grange Machinery manufactures agricultural machines and wearing parts that offer affordable solutions to farmers.

The Grange Machinery product range helps lower the cost of crop establishment whilst improving soil structure and efficiency in the field.

Customers invest in Grange machines to enhance and add versatility to their current farming system. Grange machines are highly adaptable and can transform existing systems that may already be on the farm, offering greater flexibility and efficiency.

The range specialises in adaptable low disturbance toolbars and standalone looseners which offer solutions to many cultivation and seeding challenges plus the new Strip-Till Preparator.

Based at Ashburton, with branches across New Zealand and in Australia and India, Carrfields is also a family company, established 40 years ago and encompasses grain and seed, livestock and contracting businesses alongside machinery. Other leading brands in the portfolio include MacDon, Horsch and Novag.

Carrfields specialises in expert advisory services, crop management and support for New Zealand farmers, and integrates agronomy with its machinery offering, as Sales and Product Manager Ed Harrison explains:

“Our agronomy team are based throughout NZ and are very much trusted partners of their customers. They want to be able to give significant and well thought out solutions and if that involves helping with an introduction of a machine to the farmers operation that suits a specific task, it is a win for all parties. In the reverse as machinery people, to be able to offer advice from a plant specialist, the farmer gets true value from this.

“We see Grange Machinery as an ideal addition, which complements our existing suppliers to offer real value in the field. Grange is an exciting young company that has similar values to ours and offers equipment which is extremely well manufactured. We are very much looking forward to working with the company.”

Grange Machinery Managing Director Rhun Jones comments: “Carrfields’ ethos of providing a service to customers which meets their agronomic and machinery needs is very much in line with how we at Grange operate, and we feel that together we can offer some innovative ideas to increase their efficiency. We are delighted to be working with such a progressive importer and proud to have the opportunity to present our products to New Zealand farmers and contractors.”
