Machinery and dairy equipment dealers in Cumbria and south-west Scotland have been appointed to provide local service and parts support to farmers and contractors using Bauer slurry pumps, separators and related equipment. Electrical and dairy engineers Colin Dawson now supply Bauer parts and slurry equipment from their Langwathby base near Penrith, as does James Gordon through their six branches covering Ayrshire, Dumfries and Galloway.

James Gordon, which has prior experience of servicing Bauer separators and pumps, now also supplies these and other products from the range. “We’re holding a comprehensive stock of parts, such as separator screens and augers, pump components and the original hose coupling invented by Bauer, to ensure we can supply whatever our customers need as quickly as possible,” says group sales manager Kevin Fraser. Colin Dawson specialises in electrical engineering and dairy equipment installation, with agencies for Dairymaster milking systems and Serap milk cooling equipment. Managing director Colin Dawson and service technicians – son Andrew and Dean Hunter – are fully-qualified electrical engineers. For the company’s new role supporting Bauer customers, the service team has attended product and technical training sessions at Bauer’s factory in Austria.

Bauer UK & Ireland sales manager Adrian Tindall says accessible service and parts support for slurry storage and handling equipment is essential for dairy and other livestock farms, and especially for those located within Nitrate Vulnerable Zones. “The appointment of Gordons and Colin Dawson means that equipment already in use will continue to be supported, and farmers and contractors can invest in new Bauer and FAN slurry equipment knowing local parts and service support is available.”
