Flemings celebrate 150 years trading with new ÂŁ1.1m Expansion leming Agri-Products have been at the forefront of the agricultural machinery industry for almost 150 years, delivering engineering solutions to the agricultural industry in the form of quality products to withstand the toughest farming tasks, ranking as one of the longest established firms in the agricultural machinery manufacturing market, with its origins routed in Donegal in the north of Ireland from as far back as 1860. In 1983 the Fleming family moved to its current location in Newbuildings Industrial Estate near Londonderry in Northern Ireland, a tribute to the quality of the machinery developed by Flemings over the years has been the demand for Fleming products, leading to several expansion developments culminating with the most recent ÂŁ1.1m expansion which will bring the company up to 60,000 sq. ft factory space on an 8 acre site creating a state of the art manufacturing facility with an even greater emphasis on efficiency, quality & finish as well as allowing ample room for finished product storage and dispatch. The recent expansion will be fully functioning from early

F

November 2012. The new investment incorporates water harvesting system, increased welding capacity and capability including robotic welding to cope with the higher volume of products coming through the factory as well as accommodating the larger machines that are continually being added to the Fleming Range. A large proportion of the project cost has been dedicated to upgrading the product finishing process with a major factor in the factory design for the new facility being more modern processes for product preparation for cleaning, spraying, heat curing and finishing too further improve the finished machine quality and durability. New Stores department - Over the past few years the demand on our store/spare parts department has grown at a phenomenal rate. The new stores department will increase in size by over 400% with direct e-mail, fax and phone communication.

increasing export sales over the next few years. This past year has seen Fleming-Agri-Products successfully negotiate sales in several different countries in Europe and the southern hemisphere; the most recent was a deal to supply Grass Toppers to a multi dealer outlet in France. The customer was attracted to the Fleming range by the quality, strength and reliability of the Fleming products. George Fleming and Jonathan Lecky visited the region to explore the possibilities and after long discussions on what were required for the market, with some redesign work to suit the requirements of the customer’s market as well as French legislation, a deal was struck to supply a substantial quantity of Fleming Grass Toppers into the French Market.

The ever increasing cost of fertiliser has prompted the Farming world to look for a more natural way of promoting grass growth. Rolling, Aeration and Scarifying has long since been the natural way to prepare the land for good grass growth, combine this with the natural use of readily available cheap fertilisers like slurry and manure and you have the ideal recipe for good grass growth with the minimal use of expensive fertilisers. This allows for a firm germination bed with good aeration and drainage as well as allowing the nutrients and heat to feed into the roots of the grass for quicker growth, with the scutch and moss scarified away to allow the grass to grow unhindered for a good sward. The Fleming name is already synonymous with their successful wide range of Land-rollers and Grass Harrows. With Fleming’s ongoing success in recent years of the 2.5 and 3m model Aerators, customer demand has prompted Flemings to develop their latest model, the 5m hydraulic folding Aerator. After extensive research and development, the Fleming 5m Aerator has the quality and strength in the design which is synonymous with all Fleming products to be introduced into the market. Incorporating features such as Boron steel blades, unique bolt in socket placement for blades, easy Hydraulic folding, bolt in weight facility, simple lock down wings, optional shattering angle for variable aeration, bearing protective skids, parking stand.
