Netherton’s general manager Garry Smith adds: “We are very much looking forward to expanding our business to cover this newly extended trading area, and have already recruited a number of experienced staff in preparation for our opening.

As a group we are committed to delivering the best possible machinery sales and service support to existing and new customers.”

In addition to John Deere equipment, the group’s other franchises include Kramer, Kverneland, Dewulf, Bailey, HEVA, Bunning, Opico and Nugent.
