Sellars shows its faith in Scottish farming with strategic investments

Sellars, who are one of Scotland’s largest agricultural machinery dealers with seven branches covering from the Forth to Inverness, has implemented a strategic investment plan that both expands the business, but also to bring it fully back to being a local and family owned company.

The business has been expanded by the addition of a new service outlet based at Linlithgow. Located close to the M9, this will provide a more localised service for customers south of the Forth and enable Sellars to expand its customer base through the central belt of Scotland.

Looking to the future corporate development of the business, Sellars has also taken advantage of its current financial strength to buy back a minority shareholding in the business that was held by Claas UK, which will bring the business back to being 100% locally owned by its senior management and the Wattie family.
