Swaine Agri based in Rhode, Co Offaly, has been officially appointed as Valtra dealers. The midlands firm is responsible for the county of Offaly, north Kildare and parts of Laois.

Swaine Agri proprietor Liam Swaine has over 25 years experience in the industry and has built the business from the ground up selling parts and secondhand tractors with a strong focus on service and repairs.

In 2018, Swaine expanded the business having been appointed as dealer for the Farmhand range of franchises which included Krone, Amazone, Zuidberg, APV and Quicke. Since then, the business has continued to grow with a steady demand year on year for new machinery.

We are very pleased that Swaine Agri have joined the Valtra team

“The next logical step was to look for a reputable tractor franchise to add to our expanding portfolio, one that we can stand behind with our service promise and that is able to offer a wide range of reliable and productive machines suitable for our customers,” said Liam.

Valtra business manager in Ireland Andy Millar said: “We are very pleased that Swaine Agri have joined the Valtra team. They have an established background in supplying and maintaining secondhand tractors so adding a new tractor franchise is the next step for Liam to grow his business further.”
