1st Forestry & Agriculture Edition 2023
Published: 09 May 2023
On behalf of the Bell group, it gives me great pleasure to present our special NAMPO edition of the Bell Bulletin, which is focused entirely on agriculture and forestry.
It has been a year since we established Bell Forestry & Agriculture, our dedicated business unit, and became the distributor for JCB Agriculture in South Africa. We are already seeing the benefit of expanding our product range and getting closer to our customers in these industries through our growing dealer network.
In this edition, you will meet our newly appointed independent dealers. Importantly, they are all well-established businesses that are well-respected within their communities and share the same customer-centric focus. We are extremely proud to have them on board and wish them all the best with their Bell Forestry & Agriculture and JCB Agriculture dealerships.
They share the same enthusiasm about the JCB Agriculture range, especially the JCB Backhoe Loaders and Loadalls, and we look forward to bringing you more customer testimonials about these machines, and more.
Be assured that we and our dealer network are committed to guiding and supporting your business. We trust that you will enjoy NAMPO and we thank you for your interest in Bell Equipment.
