Ernest Doe & Sons Ltd – one of Great Plains’ longest serving dealers in the UK – is being appointed to cover Norfolk and adjoining parts of Cambridgeshire and Suffolk, an area previously covered by Ben Burgess Ltd, from whom the company has agreed an amicable split.

Graham Parker, Dealer Principal at Ernest Doe & Sons, says: “We are looking forward to increased business, and to introducing the Great Plains franchise to our branches at Wymondham and North Walsham.

“We see a lot of potential in Norfolk with machines like the UniPress, as well as for the Centurion drill, for which we already have demonstrations arranged”.

James Clark, Great Plains Territory manager adds: “Ben Burgess has made a great contribution to the development of the company over the past, for which we are very grateful. But they felt the need to rationalise the range of brands they represent, which makes this a very logical step.

“From Great Plains point of view, it is very reassuring to be able to put this important region in the hands of Does, which was one of the first companies to take on the original Simba franchise, and has always represented it with great professionalism and success.

“We believe they will be able to offer a full range of our machines in the region as it has such variable soils – ranging from some very heavy ones through to light and sandy types”.
