New tractor marque for dealership

West Sussex firm Yeowart Agricultural have been announced as the latest dealer to sign up for a McCormick agency, as the ARGO brand continues to add to its roster of established family businesses.

From its premises at Tyes Cross Farm, Sharpthorne, near East Grinstead, the Yeowart business is now the McCormick main dealer for the counties of East and West Sussex and Surrey. The dealership previously represented Massey Ferguson.

“The change to McCormick has been a swift but smooth one, and we are really pleased with the support shown to us by our customers and provided by the UK McCormick team,” says dealer principal  Lewis Yeowart, the third generation to play a part in the family business, today operated alongside his father David. 

“We’re well underway with the switchover, with parts stocks in place, service training planned and our sales team up to speed on the McCormick range. We already have retailed our first tractor with many more on quote.

“As a family business, much like that of ARGO Tractors, we’re excited to be working with McCormick and look forward to making investments in tractor stock, service and parts support, and our Tyes Cross Farm depot.” 

The Edenbridge and Oxted Show in late August provided Yeowart Agricultural with the opportunity to unveil its new franchise, and Lewis reports that the response from both potential and existing customers was enthusiastic.

“We have a very loyal customer base, and were really pleased at the interest in McCormick tractors  from long-term customers. In addition, though, the tractors gained a lot of attention from potential new customers for our business, ranging from owners of large small farms to those who operate smaller units, fruit farms, turf-based facilities and equestrian enterprise owners. 

“We’ve a dedicated, experienced team of five service staff who have been looking after customers in Sussex and Surrey for many years. Along with our sales and parts teams, they are looking forward to supplying, servicing and supporting local tractor users with what we’re convinced is an excellent new franchise.”
