Yesterday, we were delighted to greet one of the UK’s most loved and trusted agricultural brands, Massey Ferguson. A leading agricultural equipment brand of the highest international reputation, Massey Ferguson are hoping to send their European roadshow to the County of Shropshire this year and we, here at the Ironworks, are excited to announce that we will be putting in every effort to ensure that we host the event. Through the success of our annual Classic & Vintage Transport Rally and our passion for the vehicle industry, we believe that our grounds are the ideal location for an expo of this stature.

Yesterday afternoon, officials organising the event inspected our grounds and facilities to decide whether or not we can accommodate such a large contingent of vehicles and equipment. Taking place over a full week, all regional dealers from across Shropshire and the Welsh borders will be attending the event to see the latest and newly launched vehicle models whilst offering advice and demonstrations throughout the week. Prospective users from the commercial and non-commercial farming communities in and around Shropshire will be personally invited to see the machines in all of their glory. The week will also include trails and experiences facilitated by industry experts to enthuse and remind users of the future why Massey Ferguson remains a world leader in agriculture.
We have been specifically chosen by Massey Ferguson for our synergy with the brand, our passion for manufacturing history and, of course, our ability to offer the best backdrop and location for such a world-renowned rural event. Watch this space for further details!
