After 27 years of representing Merlo, Murton-based Yorkshire Handlers announced earlier this year their intention to relinquish the franchise and retire.

Shaun Groom, general manager of Merlo UK explained, “Yorkshire is a key agricultural county, where Merlo handlers have found favour across a wide range of farming operations. As such, we wanted to be sure to appoint a new dealer that could support those existing Merlo customers effectively, whilst further developing the sales of new Merlo products.

“We are pleased to be able to announce the appointment of Brompton by Sawdon based Hardwick Agricultural Engineers, as the newest member of the Merlo agricultural dealer network.

Joining the Hardwick team from Yorkshire Handlers is experienced technician Dane Robson. Dane will be a familiar face to many customers in area having worked with the products throughout his career.

Managing director of Hardwick Agricultural Engineers, Eric Hardwick, added, “We believe that the Merlo product range perfectly reflects our business ethos of supplying and servicing the highest quality machinery within the Yorkshire area.”
