Johnsons, Manns and Claas Eastern add machinery franchises

Opico has added Johnsons of Cheadle to its Strautmann dealer network.

With two depots in Staffordshire – in Cheadle and Eccleshall – the dealership will take on the Strautmann franchise in the North Midlands.

Johnsons will be the first dealer in the country to take possession of the new Giga Vitesse 3602 forage wagon with extra wide 2.25m CFS pickup, which will be delivered in the next few weeks and will be ready for demonstrations from the start of the forage season.
