The strategic collaboration, which marks a new approach for both companies, covers all types of replacement parts for Grimme seedbed preparation equipment, such as ridgers and stone/clod separators, planters, harvesters and handling equipment.

Users can place orders by calling the Spaldings telesales line or by contacting one of the company’s regional sales specialists. Spaldings staff will provide technical back-up regarding parts issues.

Managing director Patrick Graf Grote of Grimme UK said that  Grimme dealers have done a great job of supporting customers in all areas, in particular with after-sales support and especially in meeting peak seasonal demand for fast-moving items like wearing parts. “The agreement with Spaldings will extend Grimme’s parts distribution reach to areas of the UK and Ireland beyond our existing network,” he said.

“We’re not going up against Grimme dealers but complementing their service,” said Spaldings managing director Steve Constable, “supplying original products to customers who would normally choose the grey import route so they benefit from the best quality parts backed by first class technical knowledge and service.”
