Haith partnership with Alan Mackay secures first order

A partnership between specialist vegetable handling and processing machinery manufacturer Haith Group and Alan Mackay Machinery (Forfar) Ltd has secured its first order.

Just one month after agreeing to work together, Alan Mackay Machinery has sold a Haith roller spray application table to an Angus potato grower.

Based in Forfar, and with a depot in Rothienorman, Alan Mackay Machinery became a Haith Sales & Service Partner to give Scottish farmers and growers easier access to the Haith range of specialist vegetable handling and processing machinery.

“We have lots of customers in Scotland, but we wanted to make it even easier for them to work with us,” says Duane Hill, Sales Director at Haiths. “Before this partnership, we only usually had two members of our team covering Scotland and while this hasn’t been a problem, working with Alan Mackay will mean we can work with more farmers at the same time and respond more quickly and more efficiently to enquiries, which will be good news for our customers and us.

“Alan Mackay is an established and respected company, which has tremendous knowledge of our markets and now, thanks to our training and support, they will be able to sell and service our machines.

“Scotland is home to many quality growers, and we want to ensure they have access to the best machines on the market. We’re confident that this partnership with Alan Mackay will see even more Scottish farmers taking advantage of our class-leading box tipplers, washers and graders.”

Established in 2004, Alan Mackay Machinery is best known for offering a wide range of farm equipment, including Valtra tractors, Amazone, Mchale, Sumo tillage equipment, Krone forage solutions and now Haith’s vegetable handling equipment.

“We’re delighted to be working with Haith. They are the leading specialist vegetable handling and processing machinery manufacturer in the UK and have the most extensive range of machinery available,” says Alan Mackay, Managing Director at Alan Mackay Machinery. “Being able to offer their range to Scottish farmers and growers means that we are better placed than ever before. As well as offering advice and developing solutions for farmers, we will also be servicing machines to keep them running efficiently. We are also extremely impressed with the build quality of Haith machinery. I am sure this partnership is going to be great news for everyone involved in Scottish food production. ”
