Appointment of new dealer ‘a further cornerstone’ for Pottinger

Pottinger Ireland has announced the appointment of Kelvale Agri Machinery Limited of Glenmore, Co. Kilkenny, as an authorised dealer for the full range of Pottinger products.

An established family-run business of over 10 years, Kelvale Agri Machinery Ltd currently provides sales and service of used tractors and machinery, specialising in Deutz Fahr tractors.

Jamie and Nicholas Kelly of Kelvale Agri Machinery Ltd said they are confident they will contribute to the brand growth in the south and southeast, the Austrian headquartered manufacturing giant says.

Commenting, Diarmuid Claridge, managing director of Pottinger Ireland, said:

This recent appointment of Kelvale Agri Machinery Ltd is a further cornerstone in our development of Pottinger in Ireland.

“Kelvale Agri Machinery Ltd’s experience, knowledge and location will guarantee our growing customer base an improved and solid sales and aftersales service to meet today’s farming needs.

“With its sales and parts shop situated just off the N25 main road in Glenmore, south Kilkenny, Kelvale Agri Machinery Ltd is well positioned to provide its services to the county of Waterford and the southeast,” Claridge claimed.

Jamie Kelly, head of sales at Kelvale Agri, also spoke, saying: “Adding Pottinger to our product portfolio allows us to offer customers a range of new products.

“We are excited by the opportunities this partnership offers,” Kelly concluded.

This follows on from the official opening of a new Pottinger premises in Clonmel, Co. Tipperary, this time last year.

The occasion was marked with a visit from both the Austrian ambassador to Ireland and top brass from the Austrian-headquartered firm.

The premises was officially opened by the Austrian ambassador to Ireland, Dr. Helmut Freudenschuss.

The main speaker for the executive board of Pottinger – Gregor Dietachmayr – was also on hand to open proceedings.
