Merlo UK has announced that JB Barrett Tractors, based in Omagh, County Tyrone, is the latest dealership to take on the franchise.
The company has been trading for nearly 50 years. Founded by Joseph Barrett Snr, the family-run business has been one of Same Deutz-Fahr’s top performing dealers in the UK. It has also gained a reputation for aftersales support with an impressive and well-stocked onsite spare parts facility.
“I am delighted to have JB Barrett Tractors join the Merlo dealer network, further strengthening Merlo distribution and aftersales care in Northern Ireland,” said Owen Buttle, national sales manager of Merlo UK. “JB Barrett Tractors are well known in the Omagh and surrounding area for their outstanding customer support. Both Merlo and JB Barrett Tractors share a number of core values as family-run businesses.”
JB Barrett Tractors will join the Merlo retail network in Northern Ireland, alongside DA Forgie Ltd. Managing director Joseph Barrett Jnr said: “Merlo is a respected quality brand offering the performance and reliability our customers demand. There are models to suit all types and sizes of agricultural enterprise making Merlo an ideal partner and will complement the quality brands we currently represent. There is great excitement throughout our dealership having been awarded the Merlo franchise.”
