Based in Shropshire, but serving the whole of the UK, JVS Machinery is owned and run by husband and wife, James and Victoria Seaton. “We know Bélair equipment has been popular so we want customers to know that we are here to help with parts and new machines,” says Mr Seaton.

Bélair products include the Brick straw bedder and Gabare self-loading wagons. “The Brick has sold very well in Scotland and we are helping existing customers to maintain their machines whilst offering the full range of new machines,” adds Mr Seaton.

The largest of the self-loading wagons is the Gabare Premium XL. “It has a 2.25m wide twin drum front mower and can carry more than 10.0t of fresh grass.

JVS Machinery also refurbishes used machines. “Some existing customers have upgraded to newer models and this is creating a market for used machines.” To support farmers with existing Bélair machines the business is also offering parts, servicing and repairs throughout the UK.

The French company began making farm machinery in 1964. Today, it employs nearly 50 staff and distributes machinery worldwide.
