MCARTHUR AGRICULTURE

McArthur Agriculture has grown from a farm diversification in the 1990s. Over years of contracting, selling and supporting mobile grain driers the company has built up a team with valuable technical and practical experience.

Since 2000, every new Mecmar mobile grain drier in Great Britain and Ireland has been supplied and supported by McArthur Agriculture.  The business has grown into a broader grain storage equipment specialist. We put this growth down to the commitment, knowledge and service that goes into the design, installation and specialist aftersales support of the equipment we sell.

Our aim is to improve farm businesses and give farmers peace of mind through better grain storage.

We make every grain count.
