Swaine Agri, based in Rhode, Co. Offaly, has recently been appointed as a Valtra dealer for Co. Offaly, north Kildare and part of Co. Laois.
Starting as a tractor and spare parts supplier, Liam Swaine – the proprietor of Swaine Agri – has over 30 years of experience in the industry. He says that he is “very happy with the inclusion of the Valtra brand to complement the expanding stable of product lines”.
Our business, for many years, has been based on supplying good quality second-hand tractors with a strong focus on service and repairs.
He added: “With the recent addition of the Farmhand franchises – to supply new Krone, Amazone and Quicke machinery – our customer base has further expanded. We are seeing more and more demand each year for new equipment.
“The next logical step was to look for a reputable tractor franchise to add to our expanding machinery portfolio – one that we can stand behind.
Signing up with Valtra – a well-established brand in Ireland with a great reputation for durability in our tough working conditions – is a great addition to our business.
Valtra’s Andy Miller added his comments, saying: “We are very pleased that Swaine Agri has joined the Valtra team. The business has an established background in supplying and maintaining second-hand tractors, so adding a new tractor franchise is the next step for Liam.
“We look forward to working closely with Swaine Agri to grow the Valtra brand in central Ireland.”
