- Kelso & Lothian Harvesters and A M Phillip Agritech have joined forces to form Scot Agri, a new agricultural brand within The Scot JCB Group
- Scot Agri will provide machinery sales, service and parts from JCB, Massey Ferguson, Valtra, HORSCH, Ktwo, Vicon and more across their six depots in the North East of Scotland and two depots in the Scottish Borders
The roll-out will continue to the current Scot JCB agricultural depots which will be dual-branded with Scot Agri for agriculture products and Scot JCB for construction products.
Robin Bryant, Joint Managing Director at The Scot JCB Group, said: “The rebranding of Kelso & Lothian Harvesters and A M Phillip Agritech to Scot Agri unifies our agricultural companies under one brand while maintaining the same industry-leading service we have always provided.
Over the coming weeks you will see our staff in their new uniforms, our depot signage changing, and our van livery being updated. Today we have launched our new website scotagri.com where you can find out more about all the new and used machinery we offer.
