Russells is based in Malton in North Yorkshire with nine current depots across Yorkshire, Derbyshire, Notts and Northamptonshire. The RES territory will complement the current Russells territories around the area and RES owner Bob Skinner and his team at the Harby branch will all move to the Russells team.

“We are looking forward to the challenge and opportunities the new territory provides,” comments Russell’s CEO Paul Russell. “We are delighted to welcome Bob and all the other experienced staff from RES to Russells and we all look forward to growing our business in the new area together with New Holland.”

Bob Skinner, comments: “Whilst these decisions are always difficult, myself and my family, and all of the fantastic team of people at RES, are confident that the integration of the business into Russells will strengthen the service we provide and ensure we continue to serve the Leicestershire farming community for many more years to come. It will be business as usual at Harby and we look forward to working with Paul Russell and his team.”
