Claydon have announced a price freeze on all new machinery in its range for orders taken by January 2017.
“Many agricultural machinery importers increased their prices by 10 per cent or more immediately after ‘Brexit’ because of the sharp fall in the value of Sterling which followed, particularly against the Euro,” Spencer Claydon, the company’s Commercial Director, explains.
“Being a UK-based manufacturer has helped us to maintain prices at existing levels, which has been reflected in strong and growing demand. However, the cost of the high-quality materials which are used in the manufacture of Claydon products has risen significantly during the subsequent months. While we have decided to hold our prices at current levels until January 2017 by absorbing the increased input costs, after that time the increases in raw materials prices must be reflected in higher prices throughout the Claydon range.”
Customers who are considering the purchase of a Claydon Hybrid drill, Straw Harrow, TerraStar cultivator or Cambridge Rolls can benefit from current prices by contacting their local dealer or Claydon on 01440 820327 for more information.
Developed and patented by arable farmer Jeff Claydon, the Claydon Strip Seeding System is now sold in 29 countries by the company’s commercial team and ever-developing distribution network. Claydon products now operate and have been extensively proven across the widest range of climatic conditions, soil types and crops.
