Following its recent acquisition, RBM has become part of the long established North Yorkshire based Ripon Farm Services.
Ripon Farm Services is a major agricultural machinery dealer, serving customers across Yorkshire and the Humber and Teesside. It also supplies parts, provides support and servicing and sells used equipment. The company employs 190 people at its nine depots and turnover this year was £70 million.
The enlarged company will trade as Ripon Farm Services, with all existing Ripon Farm Services and RBM branches as well as all branch staff being retained.
Adrian Denner, managing director of RBM Agricultural, said: “Ripon Farm Services shares our values for providing premium brands backed by expertise and excellent standards of service, a combination which delivers best value to customers.”
Geoff Brown, managing director of Ripon Farm Services, said: “This acquisition represents considerable investment in our business and staff and fits perfectly with our growth ambitions. It provides us with a great opportunity to expand our reputation for delivering high quality products and services to a much wider customer base.”
