After two decades

Nottingham based turf and ground care machinery distributor, Henton & Chattell, have announced they are to stop selling John Deere machinery in Spring 2023.

The company say they have successfully sold Deere for two decades in the Midlands.  

Peter Chaloner, managing director of Henton & Chattell (pictured above), explained, “We have certainly enjoyed working with the John Deere team and thank them for their support and professionalism. We will continue to work closely with our customers as we develop our professional turf business with other brands. The turf and ground care sector continues to be an important focus for the business and rest assured, we will continue to look after our existing customers in the future.”

TurfPro asked Henton & Chattell if they would be directly replacing John Deere with any new brands and was told plans were taking shape and further announcements would be made in due course.

The company say they have one of the largest after-sales and service teams dedicated to ground care machinery in the Midlands and potentially the largest parts stock holdings for turf and garden machinery, covering over 70,000 different parts lines.  

Peter continued, “H&C is looking to grow its turf and ground care business. We’ve seen good levels of success in this sector, and we are confident of future growth. Service is the key for professional and trade customers alike. We very much value our family culture at H&C, our strength is our people and I believe this shows through consistently within every aspect of our business. Commitment and dedication to go the extra mile, to help our customers makes all the difference.”

Henton & Chattell operates from its head office in Nottingham, and has recently made a substantial investment in a 40,000 sq. ft. warehouse to facilitate its growth plans. The company says in the near future, an additional site is planned, which will be dedicated to its turf and ground care business. Peter Chaloner explained that the new depot will be a ‘one-stop-shop’ for professional customers, offering parts, service, training and demonstrations. 

Henton & Chattell is a family owned and managed business, established in 1931. They describe themselves as the UK’s largest independent garden machinery and parts distributor, employ over 85 staff and have an annual turnover of over £35m.
