More than 1,000 people attended MST’s recent agricultural open day to see the latest developments in agricultural machinery.
Customers, manufacturers and members of the public flocked to the company’s Blundell’s Road depot in Tiverton to get a closer look at machinery from well-known agricultural brands including Pottinger, Kubota, Honda and Twose and Massey Ferguson.
“We were thrilled to have the opportunity to display the new Massey Ferguson 5600 and MF 6600 tractor series – the first time these have actually been on show to the public,” said Group Marketing Manager, Rob Henry.
As well as being able to appreciate new and improved machinery and equipment, guests were treated to an open bar, trade giveaways and a hog roast that proved to be extremely popular. Devon Young Farmers Club assisted at the event which also raised money for various charities.
“Our open days in the past have combined agriculture with groundcare and exhibits by our sister company, Parkins,” explained Rob. “This is the first one that has purely concentrated on agriculture, and we were delighted to see so much interest.
“MST is celebrating a highly successful year. We have recently been appointed by Pottinger, new territory has been secured for Massey Ferguson in South Devon and our sales and support teams are growing,” he added.
Further, combined open days will be held during 2014 at the Tiverton depot and Lee Mill near Plymouth.
