Lincolnshire based manufacturer Agricast, which produces wearing parts for agricultural machines, is reportedly investing more than £150,000 into its headquarters, having committed to purchasing a new high definition plasma cutter to bring more of its precision manufacturing in-house.
William Robinson, Agricast general manager, has also recently expanded the premises with a new office block, staff room and additional storage.
The company has also seen its turnover increase by more than 30% in the last twelve months, as more farmers look for more economic solutions to replacing wearing parts. In light of this, the company has also hired two new recruits.
Matt Davis has relocated from Leicester to look after Agricast’s warehouse operations, preparing orders and undertaking stock control. Mr Davis has been joined by Ian Dyson, an experienced agricultural fabricator and welder, who will add to the company’s ability to offer bespoke wearing part solutions.
“Despite everything the pandemic has thrown at us, we have managed to supply our customers with what they and when they need it,” said Mr Robinson. “There is no doubt the last eighteen months have been incredibly challenging, and there have been some issues affecting our supply chain. However, we’re delighted to see our turnover increase as farmers look to source high-quality parts at reasonable prices.
“The new office space and plasma cutter, along with Matt and Ian joining us, will help us continue to maintain the high levels of customer service that we aim for.”
