A family-run firm from Sutton Bridge which has bucked the economic trend and last year saw a turnover over of hundreds of thousands of pounds, is looking forward to exhibiting at the UK’s premier farming machinery show next week.

Statech Solutions Ltd, based at the Railway Lane industrial units, is run by two husband and wives’ teams, Andy and Nikki Lomas, and Ricky and Sally Stancer. The firm’s service manager is Mark Oakey.

On Wednesday and Thursday they will be showcasing their products at the LAMMA show in Peterborough, which is the UK’s largest farm machinery and agricultural services event.

In the past couple of years the business, which specialises in creating bespoke root crop handling machinery, has beaten the economic climate and last year saw a turnover of £400,000.

Statech Solutions designs, manufactures, installs and supports grading, conveying, tipping and filling agricultural machinery. Its team also offers advice to farmers on how to extend the lifetime of equipment and prevent breakdowns.

Its engineers are on call 24 hours and it also stocks a large range of spares and sources extra products if required.
