Two of the most illustrious names in British agricultural engineering, Twose of Tiverton and sister company McConnel, will merge on May 1 to create a specialist grassland and arable machinery division. The move will enable the company to offer a one-stop shop for all of its agricultural and green maintenance machinery products. Specialist sales and technical support teams will also be added, and the company says the wider product offering will generate new growth opportunities. All grassland and arable machinery will be produced at the Alamo Manufacturing Service’s facility at Salford Priors, whilst the hedge and verge cutting machinery will continue to be manufactured at Ludlow. B
