Ripon Farm Services expands with RBM acquisition

Ripon Farm Services is expanding following the acquisition of neighbouring John Deere dealership RBM Agricultural Ltd.

The enlarged company will trade as Ripon Farm Services, with all existing Ripon Farm Services and RBM branches as well as all branch staff being retained.

RBM Agricultural is a £45m turnover business, employing 84 staff at its five branches in Market Weighton, Malton, Retford, Brigg and Louth.

The acquisition will enable us to expand our geographical presence into Lincolnshire and Nottinghamshire.

Geoff Brown, managing director of Ripon Farm Services, said: “This acquisition represents considerable investment in our business and staff and fits perfectly with our growth ambitions. It provides us with a great opportunity to expand our reputation for delivering high quality products and services to a much wider customer base.”

Adrian Denner, managing director of RBM Agricultural, said: “Ripon Farm Services shares our values for providing premium brands backed by expertise and excellent standards of service, a combination which delivers the best value to customers.”
