Effective from 2 April 2013, we have made the
decision to consolidate our Skipton depot and move all the
operations and staff to our Gisburn site.
We have made this decision to enable us to improve our customer service by better managing our resources and improving our
communications by bringing all the team together under one roof.
We are currently in the process of investing in our Gisburn site to update our facilities ready to accommodate the changes.
We believe this is a positive step and that there will be many advantages for our customers and us by taking this step.
We are still fully committed to providing the best service possible to all our customers in Yorkshire, Lancashire and beyond.
When the weather becomes warmer and the lambing season starts, it is a sure sign that Spring is upon us. To mark the first day of Spring
this year Guy Machinery held their open day on Tuesday 20 March at their branch at Skipton Auction Mart.
The open day, which was the first to be held in the new depot, was as busy as ever, highlighting the very best machinery that Guy
Machinery have to offer.
“We moved into the new building last March, having previously been located in a different building at the auction mart. This is the
first event we’ve held at the new building,” explains Graham Guy. “The open day gives customers a chance to see what we are doing and
what new machinery we have to offer.”
A main attraction for the open day was the Valtra driving experience on offer. Putting the try before you buy idea to the test,
customers had the chance to test drive Valtra’s Third Generation A, N and T series tractors for themselves.
“The new Valtra series include modified engines to meet with the change in emission laws,” says Guy. “Giving customers the chance to
test drive these new tractors meant they could try out the new engines on the market.”
Both Guy Machinery staff and reps were on hand to show visitors the new machinery available for 2012 with plenty of refreshments to
keep everyone going.
A wide range of Krone machinery was also on display, from mowers right through to forage harvesters. As the North’s number one Krone
dealership, Guy Machinery pride themselves on stocking Krone’s full range of products.
“Being Krone’s third largest dealership in the UK, we are able to cater for customers wanting to buy anything from a £2,000 machine,
right up to a £200,000 machine, and they are all available to view here at the depot.”
Other exhibitors at the show included Can-Am, Polaris, Schaffer and Joskin. For the first time, Ifor Williams products were also
available at the Skipton depot for the open day. Their products can now be purchased from the Skipton branch.
Having been established at Skipton Auction Mart since October 2005, taking over the franchise and customer base of Gibsons Tractors,
Guy Machinery have since opened another branch at Lyndale Works next to Gisburn Auction Mart. The new branch opened in February 2010.
Guy Machinery specialise in sales of new and used tractors, trailers, agricultural vehicles and machinery, ATVs and quad bikes,
cranes, loaders and handlers. They also offer short or long term machinery and equipment hire which can be arranged at very competitive
“It was fantastic to see so many of our customers, both new and old. The open day was a great way to celebrate our first year in the
new premises and to highlight what we have to offer for 2012.”
