Expansion for Manitou and Thurlow Nunn Standen

  • Manitou and Thurlow Nunn Standen expands territory across Bedfordshire and adjacent Hertfordshire

The recent decision of Chandlers Farm Equipment to relinquish the Manitou franchise has provided Manitou with the opportunity to provide an expanded agricultural geographical area across Bedfordshire and along the adjacent borders of Hertfordshire.

Established in 1875, TNS is a family managed business operating from five branches across Suffolk, Norfolk and Cambridgeshire. TNS have been Manitou dealers since 1st January 2021 and have provided excellent levels of customer service to long standing customers along with keeping great stock levels of parts and attachments.

Currently covering East Anglia for Agricultural, Construction and Industrial products for Manitou, the expansion of their Agricultural territory will offer customers in the new areas a reputable, trustworthy dealer to provide high quality customer support, which has seen the business grow significantly with Manitou products. TNS are equally very well known throughout the regions successfully representing many brands within Automotive retailing, and parts distribution.

Mark Ormond, Managing Director of Manitou UK Ltd, says “Manitou strives to produce market leading machines and support them with market leading customer service. That means partnering with the world’s leading machinery dealers. We are delighted to announce that TNS will be expanding their Agricultural area. I have no doubt about the standard of service they will deliver to our customers across the region. “

TNS Manitou Business Director, David Banks added, “we are very excited to be able to build on the fantastic relationship we have with Manitou, which is central to our business objectives.

Our focus is always ensuring our customers remain at the forefront of everything we do, and myself and the wider team are absolutely delighted to be able to offer the same excellent levels of service and support we pride ourselves on. “
