KC Ma­chin­ery opens up in the Tweed

The Northern Star - Northern New South Wales Rural Weekly - - Front Page -

THE farm ma­chin­ery ven­dor KC Equip­ment has ex­tended oper­a­tions into Mur­willum­bah.

The com­pany bought Noel Gra­ham Farm Ma­chin­ery to add to its out­lets at Lis­more and Yatala, and provide the Tweed Shire with a ded­i­cated new equip­ment provider.

Di­rec­tor Rus­sell Bryson said KC Equip­ment would con­tinue op­er­at­ing from the same lo­ca­tion, with the same prod­uct range and the same lo­cal staff be­hind the counter.

The ac­qui­si­tion means KC Equip­ment will be­come the sole AGCO dealer from Bris­bane to north of Grafton. John Berends prod­ucts will be added to the ex­ist­ing ranges of sprayers, im­ple­ments, slash­ers and cane equip­ment.

Pre­vi­ous joint own­ers Noel and Mary-anne Gra­ham and Deb­bie Byrne are re­tir­ing, with Mal­colm Byrne stay­ing to help with the tran­si­tion.

Mur’bah born-and-bred Noel started as an ap­pren­tice me­chanic with Massey Fer­gu­son deal­er­ship Eb­bott Fen­ner in 1969, and Mal­colm be­gan a few years later, over the road at Tweed Ma­chin­ery.

In 1988 the pair bought Eb­bott Fen­ner, in 1996 they were ap­proved to be­come Case deal­ers, and in 2000 they bought Sun­rise Mo­tors, bring­ing the Kub­ota brand into the com­pany.
