Best of British

European and US farm machinery may dominate the aisles at any farm show, but there are still plenty of British manufacturers doing a great job making machines for the domestic and export markets.

Our Best of British series looks at the history, current product range and future prospects for these British manufacturers, some of whom are British owned and some foreign-owned but manufacturing in the UK.

This series is an on-going one, with more than a dozen companies already featured and many more to come. So if you’re wondering why JCB (British-owned and manufacturing in the UK), for instance, or New Holland (Italian-owned but manufacturing in Essex) aren’t here, the answer is that we’ll be featuring them in the coming months.

Manufacturers we have featured so far are:

Logic Manufacturing

Sumo UK

New Holland


Harry West

Shelbourne Reynolds

Cousins of Emneth

Dowdeswell Engineering

Simba International
