HARSH has opened a dedicated business unit to serve the UK agricultural industry.

Designated Harsh Agri, the new operation offers a wide range of products to all sizes of businesses working in farming, agriculture, forestry and specialised industrial sectors such as power stations. These include the UniLift IT Runner hooklift trailer, bespoke sheeting systems and a wide range of hydraulic components.

Based at Harsh’s HQ just outside York, Harsh Agri is headed up by Grant Faulkner. Mark Britton (general manager) and Max Faulkner (business development manager, sales) will have joint day to day responsibility for growing the business.

The UniLift hooklift trailer has just been type approved for additional use in commercial vehicle applications.

Harsh Agri has also just taken on the UK franchise for RASCO winter maintenance equipment, with products that include tractor mounted snowploughs and rear mount self-loading gritting spreaders.
