The Carrfields Machinery and Irrigation businesses are continuing on the group’s growth strategy in North Canterbury, having purchased the Waipara Junction Garage site.
Located at the intersection of State Highway One and the Hanmer Springs turn-off, the new facility will house the CLAAS Harvest Centre, Carrfields Irrigation and the Husqvarna Equipment dealership.
“Our customer base in North Canterbury is growing and we are committed to providing an integrated sales, service and support model,” said Matt Keen, General Manager, CLAAS Harvest Centre. “We have an excellent team onboard to support the local agricultural community – providing this service is just one step we are taking to building a positive and mutually beneficial relationship in the region,” he said.
The CLAAS Harvest Centre will provide parts, service and sales and the business will look to develop agricultural parts support via suppliers that work within the local farming community.
As part of Carrfields Irrigation growth roadmap, the business will provide design and sales, service support and parts to North Canterbury. The Husqvarna Equipment dealership will be featured in a new showroom and provide general on-site sales and service. Allied Petroleum will also have a self service fuel facility on-site.
“Our investment to further expand our machinery and irrigation presence in North Canterbury is an essential part of our growth plans for these businesses,” said Carrfields Managing Director, Craig Carr. “We have a strong footprint in the wider Canterbury region and are committed to improving our service offering to our North Canterbury clients,” he said.
Settlement on the site is due mid-April with the business being fully operational by early July 2016.
