Tim Dudfield Quote-

“I’m delighted that having purchased Farm Electronics the Tolsma Grisnich Group have invested so much into the new management structure as well as additional staff on the shop floor. I feel I will be able to retire at the end of the year with some satisfaction knowing that with the backing from the parent company in Holland, Farm Electronics will continue to grow and remain a major supplier of Crop Storage Equipment in the UK”

We value our staff and customers greatly and this has been the driver of ensuring the continuity of the company in the upcoming years. We will continue to manufacture the same good quality English products with the added benefit of Dutch technological advances, always ensuring the best quality to our customers.
