The appointment means Grimme UK can consolidate from three separate dealerships to just one covering the south west, which the company reckons, increases the dealer’s ability to invest in the brand and its customers.
“We would like to reassure customers that Grimme will work hard to make this transition as smooth as possible,” says managing director Patrick Graf Grote of Grimme UK. “Parts and service will continue to be readily available in the coming weeks, as would usually be expected by our customer base.”
Hamblys managing director Steve Barrett says the Grimme franchise expands the company’s range of premium brands, which includes Claas, Lemken and Horsch. “Our sales, service and parts teams will be getting up to speed rapidly to ensure our customer service and support remains second to none,” he says.
Established in 1892, Hamblys is a family owned business. Its five depots are located at Launceston (head office) and Redruth in Cornwall, Bishops Lydeard in Somerset, and Honiton and Torrington in Devon.
