Welsh machinery rings to merge

The two machinery rings in Wales – the Pembrokeshire-based PMR Ltd and Welshpool-based Cadwyn Cymru Link Wales – are merging to create an organisation with a Wales-wide membership of 1,150.

Neil Davies, general manager of PMR and Dewi Jones, director of Cadwyn Cymru Link Wales, said merging the membership of both organisations would strengthen the service delivered to members.

 

The amalgamated business will operate from PMR’s offices at Haverfordwest, Pembrokeshire.

 

Mr Jones said: “Without borders between the two, the organisation will have more strength and everybody will benefit equally throughout Wales."

 

There will also be a cost saving by running the business from a single office.

 

Mr Davies said there would be minimal disruption to Cadwyn Cymru Link Wales members transferring to PMR.

 

PMR will now appoint a new regional representative for north and mid Wales and Mr Jones will continue to be a contact for members in the north.

 

Brexit

 

 

Mr Davies said that with the uncertainty created by Brexit, it was now more important than ever for the farming industry to collaborate.

 

“The purpose of the ring is to help members make savings on many of their business purchases. By working together, we can ease what is going to be a difficult period in the next few years.”

 

Although the sharing of machinery still forms an important part of the organisation’s activities, services have expanded to include facilitating the supply of fuel, electricity, machinery parts and training. Other purchasing options include agri-chemicals, fertilisers, seeds and sawdust.

 

“Combining the membership will also allow the commodities trading of silage, hay, straw, grain and fodder beet between members to grow,” according to PMR’s chairman, Ken Smith.

 

“Continued growth is important as it will help give us the purchasing power to maximise benefits to members,” he added.
