Stocks have appointed Tim Farrow as UK Field Sales Manager for the Stocks range of wheels, tyres and applicators.
A classic tractor enthusiast, Tim has worked in agriculture his whole life. He began his career as a machine operator and service engineer, then ran his own business for 14 years importing and distributing livestock equipment before becoming Service Manager and later Branch manager for a machinery dealer. In addition, he also runs his own sheep and beef farm with his wife.
James Woolway, Managing Director, Stocks Ag Limited commented, ‘Tim’s appointment bolsters the existing office-based sales team at Wisbech. He has worked on farms and in technical, service and management roles in the agricultural machinery industry for the past 25 years, he brings with him a wealth of experience, enthusiasm and practical technical knowledge.’
On his new appointment Tim said, ‘Stocks has always been a name I have known. I have a good understanding of the UK machinery industry and joining Stocks was an opportunity too good to miss. I’m excited to be part of this British engineering company and getting to grips with our full range of applicators and specialist wheels, especially now that Stocks is under new ownership. However, I’m most looking forward to getting out and meeting customers and dealers when conditions allow.’
BUILT IN THE UK
Wisbech is still the home of Stocks Ag. All applicators are fabricated, assembled and painted in the Cambridgeshire factory. Precision assembly and quality control are paramount to the production process.
The R & D team work with both the factory and farmers to deliver a seeding solution that is fit for current farming practices.
