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.

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.
