HJR Agri (Oswestry) Ltd was formed in 2008 by former Burgess Group employees Terry and Alan Hughes, Melfyn Jones and Andy Roberts. They acquired a number of leading farm equipment franchises and in 2009 started representing the McCormick tractor range in west Shropshire and mid-Wales.A year after taking on the McCormick tractor franchise, HJR Agri won the Emerging Dealer of the Year title in awards promoted to highlight excellence in agricultural equipment sales and service. In 2011, the company was named Best McCormick Dealer in the Central region, covering the Midlands and north Wales, by McCormick distributor AgriArgo UK.
HJR Agri’s subsequent performance gave AgriArgo the confidence to extend the dealership’s sales and service support territory into north Wales, from just west of Chester to Conwy.
“Despite starting from scratch, Terry Hughes and his colleagues at HJR Agri have consistently been one of our best dealers in terms of sales,” says Ray Spinks,general manager and sales director at AgriArgo UK. “They have also earned an excellent reputation among customers for after-sales service, always responding quickly and keen to sort out any issues.”Andy Roberts and Colin Ward run the well-stocked parts department, while Alan Hughes and Melfyn Jones work ,alongside other trained technicians, handling repairs and routine servicing and Terry Hughes heads the sales department as managing director.
