New Opico dealer for Maschio Gaspardo in the Scottish Borders

Opico Ltd has announced the appointment of A B Wight Engineering to their Maschio Gaspardo dealer network.

Based on the Charlesfield Industrial Estate, St Boswells, this relatively new dealership has a wealth of agricultural engineering experience and will sell the full Maschio Gaspardo tillage line-up of ploughs, cultivators, drills, combination drills and rotovators, as well as the extensive range of Maschio flail mowers. They are ideally located to grow the franchise in the Scottish Borders area.

Commenting Rob Immink, Maschio Gaspardo’s Sales Manager said, “A strong engineering background led Andrew Wight to establish A B Wight, five years ago.  We have been impressed with the company’s enthusiasm, experience and the portfolio of farmers they deal with.  Andrew’s brother Garry joined A B White last year and has a credible history of selling and servicing agricultural machinery.  We couldn’t be more excited to have them on board.”

Andrew Wight, Managing Director at A B  Wight added, “We took on Maschio Gaspardo earlier this year to complement our existing machinery portfolio.  We’ve already enjoyed second place success at our first ploughing match with the UNICO plough and are busy with requests for plough demonstrations.  Garry, and the rest of our sales, service and parts team are fully up-to-speed with the Maschio product range and are ready to get the machines out for demonstration.”
