Wheels and tyres, seeders and applicators manufacturer, Stocks Ag has recently appointed David Blackwood as the new UK sales manager.

Mr Blackwood is bringing nearly 30 years’ experience in the agricultural machinery industry to his role at Stocks Ag, having previously worked internationally in sales, support, after-market and distribution development roles.

Northern Irish born, Mr Blackwood grew up on a dairy farm but began his career in ag-machinery as a graduate engineer at the old Massey Ferguson tractor factory in Coventry. He then spent five years at the Massey Ferguson Asia Pacific office in Singapore and six years in AGCO’s regional office in Melbourne, Australia, where he focused on distribution development.

Most recently Mr Blackwood worked for the Fella and former Lely Welger factories, as export business development manager.

Of his appointment, Mr Blackwood said: “I have come across Stocks Ag products in many parts of the world, from dual wheels in peat applications in Indonesia, to seeders in the far north of Japan, making this an irresistible opportunity.”

“Stocks is well positioned to build on an excellent reputation and I am excited to be part of the new growth phase both in the UK and the rest of the world.”

“David brings a wealth of experience to Stocks,” added James Woolway, Stocks Ag managing director. “I am confident he will lead the sales team here in the UK, as well as develop our export business – we are lucky to have him.”
