FARMGEM - BACKGROUND
The FarmGEM Company was formed in July 2009 and the growth of the business and machine portfolio has been astounding. This is down to several key factors, fantastic UK dealer support, that the GEM Sprayers brand is still held in a very high regard by many growers and the fact that FarmGEM are producing equally strong and reliable machines and backing that up with a three-year construction warranty. The company is headed up by Terry Fixter, Managing Director with Cliff Buck looking after UK Sales, several other ex-GEM staff also involved over the years, bringing easily over one hundred years of combined crop sprayer experience to the company. The accounts office is in Southwell, Nottinghamshire with tractor mounted and trailed machines manufactured in our factory in Veria, Greece. Self-propelled machines are manufactured in Lincolnshire UK. The fact that the machines are manufactured in Europe brings several advantages, the main one being the access to easily deliver our machines into many markets other than the UK and Ireland. We have appointed dealers and delivered machines into Greece, Lithuania, Latvia, Estonia, New Zealand and Bulgaria and even have machines working in the Philippines and The Democratic Republic of the Congo. That said the UK and Irish markets remain key and as with all other markets we have a sole importer who has been able to establish a comprehensive dealer network throughout the UK to supply and support FarmGEM sprayers.
Although a completely new range of sprayers has been designed and developed, they have a clear link to the original Gem Sprayer quality but are complimented with a new generation of booms and chassis’s and tanks for both trailed and mounted ranges, along with modern styling. So, the range now comprises of mounted machines with tank capacities from 200 litres to 1600 litres and boom widths from 8m to 26m. The trailed sprayer range boasts new models which can provide tank capacities from 2500 litres to 6000 litres and boom options from 18 to 36 metres. FarmGEM also offer the Sapphire range of self-propelled sprayers to provide the larger farmer or contractor with capacities up to 6000 litres and 36 metre boom widths.
