NP Seymour celebrates 50 years and welcomes Tim Sillence to the team

The UK’s leading fruit and vine machinery specialist, NP Seymour (which is celebrating its 50th anniversary and 40 years as a Fendt dealer in 2024), has recently appointed Tim Sillence to its sales team.

Tim brings a wealth of hands-on experience operating and demonstrating tractors and machinery within the fruit, vegetable and arable sectors to the family-run dealership.

Commenting on Tim’s appointment, Claire Seymour, Sales Director at NP Seymour, said: 

“Tim has a fantastic understanding of how things work mechanically, and more importantly, he knows exactly what growers need and expect from their tractors and machinery. Growers trust his opinion, which only comes from years of practical experience. We’re absolutely thrilled that he’s chosen to join our family-run business.” 

“Since my Dad, Nick Seymour, started this business 50 years ago, NP Seymour has been a leading force in the UK fruit and vine industries. Many dealerships have expanded into these sectors, but we are true specialists, and our decades of experience mean we understand growers’ needs like no one else. 

“The addition of Tim to our sales team will further strengthen this and ensure we’re providing our customers with optimal specification Fendt 200 v/f/p tractors and the right specialist fruit and vine machinery for their individual needs.”

Excited to have joined NP Seymour as it celebrates its 50th anniversary and 40 years of being a Fendt dealership, Tim Sillence said: 

“I’ve always enjoyed going on farm to demonstrate tractors and machinery and to show growers how new concepts and technologies work and what benefit they’ll have, be that saving time, or labour, or improving crop yields and quality. I’m now looking forward to being able to take this further and guide and advise people on what equipment is going to make a real difference to their operations.”

“I am looking forward to contributing to the continued success of NP Seymour, being part of a team with such a long-standing history and dedicated approach to serving the fruit and vine industries, and most of all, helping our customers achieve their targets with the best machinery solutions.”
