John Deere dealer Tallis Amos Group will now cover Shrewsbury and Newport in the Shropshire area, offering full sales, parts and service support.
The company was formed in 2012 when two long-standing John Deere dealerships joined forces. The company’s roots trace back to 1912, supporting farmers in the West Midlands, with 56 years as a John Deere agent.
It currently operates four depots in Evesham, Kemble, Leominster and Narberth, with plans to open an additional site near Lampeter in October. The company employs 130 members of staff, handling after-sales and sales for John Deere and a host of other franchises including Kramer, Pottinger, Sumo, Pichon, Shelbourne Reynolds, Sulky, AW & Bailey Trailers and many more.
Plans are being finalised to open two new outlets, details to be shared at a later date, to enable the company to offer support throughout the Shrewsbury and Newport areas. Current dealership Rea Valley Tractors will continue to be the authorised John Deere dealer in the area until the 31st of October.
Simon Amos, TAG agricultural sales director, said: “We are delighted to be extending our trading area and look forward to earning farmers and contractors’ business & trust in the months and years ahead.
“Alexander & Duncan were the original John Deere dealer appointed for Shropshire in 1966, our whole team have a great sense of pride in returning to serve customers across the region again”
Ben Tallis, TAG managing director, said: “This is another important step in the continued growth of TAG, only with expansion can we provide the levels of stock, technology and specialisation necessary to support the needs of modern farming and contracting businesses whilst providing the security and opportunities for everyone who works hard at TAG every day.
“We have always had a good working relationship with RVT and wish them well in the future. As we look to build on their success over the last 38 years we have agreed to work together and make the transition as smooth as possible for all customers.”
