Dewulf appoints AgVantage as new full-line dealer for central England (UK)

17/11/2020

As of November 2020, AgVantage UK Ltd will become a new official full-line dealer for Dewulf in central England, UK. AgVantage is a new company founded by former Agrifac UK Managing Director, Andy Carse, and aims to be a one-stop-shop for potato and vegetable growers in the region. This East Anglia-based company will supplement Dewulf’s already existing UK dealer network. The new partnership forms a part of the manufacturer’s strategy to further expand its local coverage so that every UK potato grower can count on the best local support for sales, service and spare parts.

Although the official start of AgVantage is planned for the first quarter of 2021, this new UK dealer will already start contacting existing and potential Dewulf customers before the end of the year. The new dealership’s founder, Andy Carse, has ambitious plans: “With AgVantage, our vision is to become a truly specialised business selling specialist machinery and offering dedicated and focussed support to the products.” Having been the Managing Director of Agrifac UK, Mr. Carse can boast over 17 years of experience in the UK agricultural machinery business, which he will now apply within AgVantage. Mr. Carse says: “I’m very happy to have the support of such a well-respected manufacturer as Dewulf for this new venture. Being able to represent brands with great potential, such as Dewulf and Miedema, not only excites me, but will also allow AgVantage to have a flying start off the line”. Taking inspiration from Dewulf’s baseline (“Enjoy Growing”), Mr. Carse concludes: “I’m sure that, thanks to this partnership, we will build some fantastic relationships with customers and provide the focussed support that today's progressive growers require with this type of equipment.”

“We’re happy to be able to announce this expansion to our UK dealer network”, says Peter Muyssen Sales Manager for the UK at Dewulf. “After analysing the UK market, we felt that an extra dealer would lift the services we can provide to local potato growers to an even higher level. Once again, we have to acknowledge that this next step in our UK growth strategy could not have been taken if it weren’t for the great efforts of Niagri Engineering over these last 20 years”. New dealer, AgVantage, can count on Dewulf’s full support, Mr. Muyssen states: “The great amount of expertise that Mr. Andy Carse has, will greatly help us to reinforce our position even further in the market. From our side, we will do our best to assist him in his ambitions for AgVantage.”

By the official start of the partnership in the first quarter of 2021, AgVantage’s team will have received in-depth product training from Dewulf’s specialists so that they can answer all customer questions and needs. With this new dealer appointment, Dewulf’s UK dealer network is currently 4 dealers strong: Niagri Engineering, Netherton Tractors, Yorkshire & Humber and AgVantage.
