McCormick and Landini HQ on the move

Argo Group, the Italian owner of McCormick, Landini and Valpadana, is to move the UK business distributing the three tractor brands into new purpose-built premises early next year.

The £2m investment will provide tractor preparation workshops, a training school, parts storage facilities and administration offices. Building work is said to be well under way on the 1.6-acre site at Harworth, 10 miles south of Doncaster.

“This is an important final step in the transition of the McCormick business, and its sister operation distributing Landini and Valpadana products, from a manufacturing operation to a commercial branch of the parent group,” says Ray Spinks, general manager.
