SHELLPLANT first opened its doors in Earls Barton in 1972 and its founder John Fensome is still involved on a daily basis.
In the 1990s Julian Payne joined him in partnership and between them they have grown the business to now offer the industry's market-leading brands, their customers are a mix of small individuals through to national PLC companies and they offer the same 100 per cent commitment to customer service whatever the size.
This refreshing approach has been at the heart of the independent business since its launch nearly 50 years ago. Leading international brands have recognised the company's exceptional service and Shellplant has long standing partnerships with market leading manufacturers including Kubota of which they are one of only two GOLD construction dealers in the UK
Alongside Kubota they are dealers for Thwaites site Dumpers manufactured in Warwickshire, Bomag compaction equipment, Atlas Copco's compressors / pneumatic breakers, hydraulic power packs and tools as well as Epiroc's machine mounted hydraulic attachment range including breakers, grabs & compactors.
Julian said: "Each customer is important to us, none more so than our local clients who are the backbone of our business."
After a successful 2019 the team are now looking forward to a busy year with demand for services and equipment expected to be high following the Government committing to continue the annual investment allowance at £1,000,000.
Along with the sales of new equipment the business also offers other services including the resale of Pre owned machines and are also offering finance packages on new and used machinery.
Shellplant operates out of a purpose-built facility including a showroom, trade counter and fully equipped workshops. with an experienced workshop team who put their skills to use giving all used equipment an extensive overhaul, parts and servicing enquiries can be undertaken with invaluable advice available from the after sales team.
Julian said: "We are very proud of what we can offer to our customers. The team at Shellplant are always keen to work with new customers but recognise the value of maintaining good relationships with existing customers.
