Mole Valley Farmers
Mole Valley Farmers Ltd was formed in 1960, when a group of farmers from the South Molton area created an agricultural buying-group. The success of this early enterprise has resulted in the Mole Valley Farmers family of companies becoming a leading agricultural supply business spanning the length of Britain, with holdings in Wales and more recently Scotland.
This includes Mole Valley Farmers branches and Bridgman’s stores across the South West, Mole Country Stores, Cox & Robinson farm direct outlets in the South and East of England, and manufacturing sites across England, and Scotland.
Last year the company’s total turnover was £420 million and it employed 2100 staff. The company puts excellent customer care at the heart of their business and expect the same from their suppliers and partners.
James Trebble – Head of Feed Production, contacted RMGroup to upgrade their current palletiser for animal feed. Their old gantry style palletiser became obsolete, they decided they needed to upgrade to increase production and continue with service and support.
RMGroup installed a fully automated ABB palletiser. After several site meetings a proposal for the project and design was made that met Mole Valleys requirements, this system was integrated with their current bagging line and with minimum disruption to production. This made the project run smoothly from start to finish.
James commented ”We researched our options for upgrading our packing lines and we were looking for a good product and good value with the emphasis on after sales support. We had used the RM Group in the past to install an Easy Teach system on one line, so we asked them to come in and provide a solution for the replacement of a robotic sack placer. This was installed in a very busy period, the job was planned and everything went to schedule. Their personnel communicated and worked well with our engineering team and installed the machine ahead of schedule.”
”We would recommend the RMGroup as an excellent UK based provider of packing equipment and solutions based on our experience” he added.
