Merlo UK have announced that Lincolnshire-based RC Setchfield Ltd are set to join their dealer network.

“This appointment symbolises Merlo UK’s commitment to providing our customers with strong and full coverage across South Lincolnshire,” explained Owen Buttle, national sales manager at Merlo UK. "As a family-owned business ourselves, we understand the strengths and stability of family-owned and operated companies. The longstanding reputation of RC Setchfield as telehandler specialists places them at the forefront of service and sales expertise in the local area.”

Founded in 1982 by Richard and Heather Setchfield to service machinery, RC Setchfield rapidly expanded into sales and parts following demand from their customer base. The business has since been passed to their daughter Hannah Setchfield, who has led the company as a director since 2021.

Hannah said, “We are delighted by this partnership with Merlo at this juncture in our history, a perfect addition to our current service offerings and existing franchises, solidifying our position asva material handler expert in the local area.

“All the team are excited to be working with a company that shares our core values; a family business, putting customers and innovation at the centre of its operations, in order to compete and do things differently.”
