Home Latest Deals Anker of Coates

John Deere’s longstanding eastern counties dealership Ben Burgess & Co Ltd has taken over the trading activities of Anker of Coates.

With its headquarters in Norwich and an additional three outlets in Norfolk and Suffolk, Ben Burgess celebrated its 80th anniversary last year.

As a dealer of agricultural, horticultural and construction machinery, it has held the John Deere franchise for nearly 50 years.

The current Anker’s operations at both the existing Coates and Ellington sites in Cambridgeshire will remain unchanged, and all staff have been retained.

“We are proud to be taking over such a well-established company and intend to continue building on the excellent business already in place,” said Ben Burgess managing director Ben Turner. “Our expanded group operation will be able to provide a wider range of parts stock and offer specialist technicians for every type of machine we sell.

“We will be striving to ensure that this change has no effect on our customers’ business, and our focus will remain on delivering strong sales, service and parts support across our trading area.”

John Deere Limited division sales manager Joedy Ibbotson added: “Ben Burgess is one of our longest serving dealers – indeed the business was selling John Deere tractors imported by Lundell before John Deere Limited was established at Langar in 1966 – and we are confident that the dealership will go from strength to strength, while continuing to provide the highest possible standards of customer support.”
