Independent Agri Parts (IAP) has opened its 11th Powered by Kramp store, with the latest being launched in Filey, providing the local agricultural community with high quality spare parts and products from a wide range of brands.
The family-run business was relocated and re-launched by the Durkin family in April 2022 and has continued to grow. The company now supplies Aztec Oils, Exol Oils, LWC agricultural attachments and Marshall Trailers and the addition of the Powered by Kramp retail store means the company can offer locals over 3000 agricultural parts and accessories, as well as the full Kramp range.
IAP is run by Steven and Jay, with the support of their parents Paul and Debbie Durkin, alongside the family farm. With an agricultural background and currently farming 4000 pigs as well as doing contract work for other farmers and restoring machinery, the family are well-placed to support others in the industry.
Jay said: We celebrated the store opening with an open day. Since then, we have seen an increase in footfall. It has been a mix of our regular customers and new ones introduced to IAP on the open day. There is not anything like this in the area. We are much closer to our local customers than many of the big dealers and they are surprised by the range we can offer through Kramp.
“We chose to partner with Kramp because of our relationship with our account manager and the service and support we receive from them. If we ever have issues, there is always someone to talk to. Even if our account manager isn’t available, we can call their head office, and nine times out of ten, we speak to the same person we always do.
“By partnering with Kramp, the range of products we can stock in our store is incredible. It is not just their products but all the brands they have available through them.”
Kramp retail consultant, John Sumner, said: “Our job is to identify businesses with lots of retail potential and to support them to grow their retail offering. We love getting to know the business owners and look forward to seeing the IAP shop develop. The team there are incredibly knowledgeable and ambitious. We look forward to continuing to support them in their venture.”
