Sharmans Agricultural Limited (Sharmans) has extended its representation for Claydon Opti-Till machinery to areas formerly covered by Collings Brothers, which until recently served customers in Cambridgeshire, Bedfordshire and Northamptonshire.

Sharmans has expanded progressively since coming under the guidance of the Barclay family in 1981. Based at Gonerby Moor near Grantham (Lincolnshire), the business operates additional depots at Louth (Lincolnshire), Melton Mowbray (Leicestershire), Lowdham (Nottinghamshire), Pytchley, Easton on the Hill (Northamptonshire) and Abbotsley (Cambridgeshire). The company will shortly open a new purpose-built facility at Pattishall near Towcester (Northamptonshire), taking the total number of depots to eight.

 Duncan Hood, group sales manager for Sharmans, said, “We introduced the Claydon brand at four depots in August 2019. Claydon’s transition from direct sales to a dealer-based model at that time provided us with an ideal opportunity to work closely with another well known, family-owned, customer-focused company with very high standards and an excellent reputation. 

 “Our partnership with Claydon has worked extremely well, so we were delighted when they asked us to further extend our representation of the brand. All Sharmans depots now sell, service and support the full range of Claydon Opti-Till machinery."
