Stocks has appointed Tim Farrow as UK field sales manager for its range of wheels, tyres and applicators.
A classic tractor enthusiast, Mr Farrow has worked in agriculture his whole life, beginning as a machine operator and service engineer, before starting his own business distributing livestock equipment. He later became service manager, and then branch manager, for a machinery dealership. In addition, he also runs his own sheep and beef farm with his wife.
James Woolway, managing director of Stocks Ag Limited, said: “Tim’s appointment bolsters the existing office-based sales team at Wisbech. He has worked on farms and in technical, service and management roles in the agricultural machinery industry for the past 25 years, bringing with him a wealth of experience, enthusiasm and practical technical knowledge.”
Commenting on his new appointment, Mr Farrow said: “Stocks has always been a name I have known. I have a good understanding of the UK machinery industry and joining Stocks was an opportunity too good to miss. I am excited to be part of this British engineering company, especially now that Stocks is under new ownership, and am getting to grips with the full range of applicators and specialist wheels. However, I am most looking forward to getting out and meeting customers and dealers when conditions allow.”
