West Midlands, England: Tallis Amos Group (TAG) has been appointed as the John Deere dealer to cover Shrewsbury and Newport in Shropshire offering full sales, parts and service support within the surrounding area.
TAG was formed in 2012 when two long-standing John Deere dealerships, Alexander & Duncan and Chris Tallis Farm Machinery, joined forces. The company traces its roots back to 1912 and has been supporting farming businesses in the West Midlands for over 100 years, with 56 years as John Deere agents.
Currently operating four depots in the West Midlands and Wales at Evesham, Kemble, Leominster and Narberth, TAG already has plans to open an additional site near Lampeter in October.
Employing a team of 130, including after-sales teams and experienced sales representatives, TAG has a comprehensive range of other machinery partners including Kramer, Pottinger, Sumo, Pichon, Shelbourne Reynolds, Sulky, and AW & Bailey Trailers.
To ensure that the company can deliver outstanding support to customers throughout the Shrewsbury and Newport area plans are being finalised to open two outlets. Rea Valley Tractors (RVT) continue to be authorised dealers until October 31.
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.”
