Based in Ely, Cambridgeshire, Prodata is a specialist in weather and environment monitoring systems and has recently announced that it will now be direct importer for the full range of Davis weather monitoring products.

Prodata has been a dealer for US-based Davis for many years, but this new agreement means the British company can import direct from Davies for all its UK and Ireland customers, speeding up service and supply times.

John Deere

Cornthwaite logoA shake-up in Northern England and Southern Scotland has seen Johnston Tractors Ltd at Carlisle, Appleby and Dumfries no longer holding the John Deere franchise, with the replacement being Cornthwaite Group.

The change comes as Cornthwaite has secured new premises in Dumfries and Carlisle to sit alongside its operations Cumbria, Lancashire and Cheshire.

JD has also announced that its partnership with Kramp has extended to France, Poland, Portugal and Spain, with other European countries to follow.


Tillage and spraying specialist Horsch will now offer its full machinery range through Claas Eastern’s eight locations covering Lincolnshire, Nottinghamshire and Yorkshire.

Zetor tractor



Family-owned Heming Engineering has become a dealer for Zetor UK, operating from its base near Broadway, Worcestershire, and covering the area of the M5/M40 corridor.


Claas dealer Olivers has bought business activities of Southern in Pepworth, Sussex and Western in Winchester, Hampshire from Claas UK. This takes Olivers from three depots to five and follows the purchase of Southern Harvesters in Reading in 2015.

Separately, Southern in Ashford, Kent has been acquired by Claas Manns and will be rebranded as Manns Kent.

Wox Agri Services

Royston Diesel Power has been commissioned to supply Volvo Penta 7.7-litre six-cylinder variable speed engines that will be used in six new farm slurry pumping units from Wox Agri Services.

Royston will supply an initial batch of three engines to the Northumberland-based agricultural machinery specialist, with three more to follow in 2019 as Wox completes its order to supply the pumps to customers across the UK.
