Carlow agricultural trailer manufacturing firm Broughan Engineering faced up to the collapse in the farm trailer business in Ireland by developing a high level of exports to the British market. By chance, this has brought new business from Scandinavia, with Swedish farmer, contractor and entrepreneur Jan-Ola Jonsson of Jonsson Farming. He spotted Broughan’s products at the LAMMA Show last January.

Jan-Ola was in the market for some new trailers for an idea he had to develop a trailer renting business in Sweden. He describes his business enterprises and how he came to buy Broughan trailers.
