New Holland has announced that the Francis Bugler dealership is to expand by investing in Dorset, with a special focus in the area around Blandford.

As part of the expansion, there are plans to open a depot to provide excellence in customer support and pursue new sales opportunities.

Francis Bugler already operates in three other depots – Beaminster in Dorset, Yeovil in Somerset, and Axminster in Devon.

Agco has also revealed it will have a new distributor for Massey Ferguson in South Central England.

C&O Tractors will take on the exclusive franchise for a full line of MF farm equipment.

Straddling several counties, C&O Tractors’ exclusive Massey Ferguson territory includes parts of Dorset, Somerset, Hants, West Sussex and Wilts, together with the Isle of Wight.


It will be responsible for the sales and support of the full-line of MF machinery, including tractors, combine harvesters, balers, hay & forage tools, grounds care and material-handling equipment.

The company operates through five depots including its headquarters in Blandford, Dorset; Wilton, Wiltshire; Funtington and Selsey in West Sussex; and Newport, Isle of Wight.

The brand-new purpose–built Funtington premises, four miles north of Chichester, was officially opened just two months ago.
