A SUNDERLAND-based plant and machinery exporter has officially unveiled an innovative new partnership with Reesink Agriculture.

The new partnership will see Comvex Compact Tractors, which is part of the Comvex Group hold exclusive distribution rights across the North- East, Cumbria, Yorkshire and Scottish Borders to supply a portfolio of Farmtrac tractors.

This includes the all new FT25G zero emissions electric tractor which featured on BBC Countryfile is the first of its kind in the country.

Capturing the market demand for a faster pace of decarbonisation for industries, transport and homes, the tractor will support the carbon footprint reduction across a range of sectors.

It also reflects the demand to address environmental concerns in the agricultural industry.

Darren Ord Jnr, managing director of the Comvex Group, a family-run business with over 35-years’ experience in the industry said: “We are delighted to have further diversified our stock portfolio and secured the exclusive distribution rights for Farmtrac products with Reesink Agriculture, in particular the FT25G electric tractor.

"The all-electric tractor delivers impressive performance, great value and no emissions."

Mr Ord added: "This innovative piece of kit is very versatile to a range of uses and is ideal for those who own or manage a sizeable acreage of ground for example an equestrian centre, an orchard, a golf course, stately home, country house, industrial grounds, garden centre or nursery, sports pavilion, or even a large garden.”
