Louth Tractors team gets boost with new talent

 In Company news, Louth Times

This summer we welcome three new members to Louth Tractors across three different departments…

Martin Johnson – Agricultural Field Engineer

Martin Johnson has a background rooted in farming and brings even more hands on, practical expertise to Louth Tractors…

“I specialise in combines and farming attachments and I’ve always worked in farming.

My family farm is based in Nocton, Lincolnshire. I studied mechanical engineering at Lincoln College, followed by an apprenticeship at Sir John Sheffield’s Laverstoke Estate in Hampshire. Since then I’ve worked in the agricultural and heavy plant industry for 35 years.

I took the position at Louth Tractors because it’s a family run business that cares passionately about both its products and its employees and it’s willing to invest in training and progression for its team. The best part about my job is being part of a valued team, and the different challenges and environments I encounter on a daily basis.”

Simon Clark – Parts Advisor

Simon worked for Louth Tractors ten years ago and having gone off to pursue other jobs in parts management, his career has come full circle and we’re delighted to welcome him back…

“I came back to Louth Tractors after working with parts at another dealership for seven years. I‘m your contact for anything to do with parts sales.

It’s great to be part of a growing business which is thriving. I first worked here when I left school, and although its changed, it’s always been a great place to be.

I’ve always worked in parts and in farming. It’s the best industry to be in, I meet different people every day with varied requirements and I’m continually being challenged. The best thing about the job is that it’s always busy!”

Chris Pennell – Sales Executive

Chris joined Louth Tractors from another local dealership, specialising in lawn mower sales, but a strong background in farming and an ambition to work in tractor sales brought him to us…

“I have always been brought up around farms, my uncles are local farmers and I used to help them in the summers to gain experience on different machines.

I’m selling some fantastic brands including Case IH and the business is now one of the only family run company’s like this in the area. John Smith’s passion for product and hands on experience, being a farmer himself, is a great driving force for the team.

The best thing about the job is the friendly workforce we have at Louth tractors and the local following is huge. We need to make it grow more but with the team we have in place now I’m very sure that we can do this.”
