County Limerick dealer, SAMCO Agricultural Manufacturing, has joined the Case IH dealer network, selling the full range of tractors, harvesting equipment and telehandlers from the 1st of January 2022. The business will also supply parts and comprehensive after-sales services, as well as opening a second depot in County Kerry in early 2022.
The company is best known for manufacturing mulch film and association application machinery for the arable and horticulture sectors. It was started in 1997 and is run by father and sons Sam, Robert and Matthew Shine, employing over 50 staff and exporting to 25 countries.
“We’re very excited to be adding the Case IH brand to our business,” said Sam Shine. “Our family has used Case IH machinery for many years and it’s a well-respected brand in this area that will complement our existing product range. We started business as dairy farmers, and then agricultural contractors before moving into machinery and work hard to use this experience to provide the best solutions for our customers in an ever-changing industry. The opening of an additional depot in County Kerry will enable us to service an even greater area of customers and we look are very much looking forward to taking delivery of our first Case IH machines in the New Year.”
Commenting on the development, Jon May, Case IH dealer relationship manager for the UK and Ireland said: “SAMCO is very well-known in the Irish agricultural industry and is an excellent addition to the Case IH dealer network, covering an area that was previously open for the brand. They are a strong business that I am confident will deliver a professional service to existing and new customers in the area. Case IH continues to be the brand of choice for a large number of Irish farmers and we look forward to working with SAMCO to strengthen the sales of our products in this part of the country in the future.”
