Crawfords Group take on the OPICO range of machinery
Established in 1980 as an agricultural machinery dealership in Essex, ‘Crawfords’ have expanded to seven depots and have extended their reach into Kent, Sussex, Surrey and Hampshire. A key AGCO dealer since 2001, Crawfords Group runs the Fendt and Valtra Franchise from their Crawfords depots and the Massey Ferguson Franchise from their Agwood depots.
Wes Crawford, Managing Director at Crawfords Group commented “We are a family-run business. Maintaining our high level of customer service and company values are as important today as it was 40 years ago. He continued ‘We’ve found that OPICO’s vision aligns with our own and, of course, it helps that they offer a premium machinery portfolio to complement our existing range! Our team are really looking forward to learning about the range of machines and can’t wait to demonstrate them to our customers.”
“Working with Crawfords is a win-win situation,” says Charles Bedforth, Sales Director “A cornerstone in our strategy is to partner with leading dealers throughout the country. In Wes and his team, we believe we will create a long-term relationship for the benefit of both companies but especially for Crawford and Agwood customers.”
