The Royal Highland Show returns for 2023 from the 22nd to the 25th of June and will be the second year that the Scot Agri brand will be exhibiting. After a successful first show under the Scot Agri name last year, the agriculture division of Scot JCB Group is eager to return to the Royal Highland Showground.
Scot Agri was formed from the combination of A M Philip Agritech and Kelso & Lothian Harvesters and provides industry-leading agricultural equipment from brands such as JCB, Massey Ferguson, Horsch, Ktwo, KRM, Berthoud, Honda, BvL, and more. Built on a solid foundation and proud to continue and develop the tradition of displaying the most innovative agricultural equipment on the market today.
Scot Agri will be showcasing across two stands found at R270 and R274.
Will Fleming, Agricultural Director at Scot Agri said, “The successful show last year under the Scot Agri brand is a testament to the hard work that has been completed within the business to this point. The Scot Agri name has been received extremely well by our existing customers and provides us with a great opportunity to continue growing.”
Featured at the stands will be an extensive range of products from Scot Agri, with some exciting new machinery debuting at the show.
Will adds, “With a considerable number of visitors expected to turn out at the event, our diverse range of machinery is always what grabs people’s attention when they are walking by. We’ve worked hard to ensure that our stands will be packed full of the latest in agricultural technology.”
The all-new JCB 514-40 compact telehandler will be on display at the Scot Agri stand. The smallest telehandler in JCB’s range, the 514-40 is compact yet comfortable and provides a spacious cab for ultimate operator comfort.
One of the biggest advantages of the JCB 514-40 is being trailer towable, making it easy to be transported to various locations. Coupled with a best-in-class lifting capacity (12% over the competition), it has been a welcomed addition to the already industry-leading line-up of agricultural telehandlers.
Also on display will be the JCB Fastrac iCon, which received great levels of attention in its debut show last year. With a redesigned cab focusing on comfort, connectivity, and control, the JCB Fastrac iCon 4000 and 8000 series provide an experience completely suited to every individual operator.
Visitors can also expect to see a range of other agricultural machinery, including the JCB Telescopic Wheel Loaders, Agricultural Telehandlers, Wheeled Loading Shovels, Teletruks, Power products, and more.
Also on the stands will be a selection of Massey Ferguson products for visitors to enjoy. Continuing to showcase the power and success of their tractor products, a Massey Ferguson 8S will be featured.
The winner of numerous design and products awards since its launch, the 8S has set the standard for tractors in its category. With engine power available up to 305hp and designed using feedback from customers, the 8S has been another excellent addition to the Massey Ferguson product line. Advanced operator controls in an easy to use package, the 8S provides straightforward technology to every customer.
Scot JCB Group Marketing Manager Lucy Mullin said, “Our commitment to first-class service and hospitality will be visible at the Highland show. We believe it’s what separates us and has helped to strengthen the growing Scot Agri brand in the last few years. Of course, an excellent selection of pies goes a long way too!”
Providing our customers with exceptional servicing, Scot Agri has depots in Forfar, Fraserburgh, Muir of Ord, Huntly, Perth, Glenrothes, Kelso, and Haddington.
Further support for JCB Agricultural equipment is provided from our depots in Alnwick, Newcastle, Carnforth, and Carlisle.
The Royal Highland Show is expected to be one of the largest on record this year, drawing around 200,000 visitors to Ingliston, and is part of the extensive event calendar for 2023 that Scot Agri will be attending.
Will Fleming concluded, “We pride ourselves on offering a fantastic experience for our customers at every interaction. The number of customers we welcomed last year was a phenomenal testament to the growth of the business and the diverse range of customers that choose Scot Agri. Everyone is looking forward to welcoming you back again for 2023.”
