From 1963 onwards they have been U.K. concessionaires for Grimme potato harvesters [Manufactured by Franz Grimme of Damme, West Germany], and by 1971 were also handling Hercules potato equipment [Manufactured by Bijlsma-Franeker, Holland] and Borga bean harvesters [Manufactured by N.

The records comprise some 40 advertising and servicing publications, mainly for Grimme machinery, from the 1960s and 1970s.
