Due to market conditions, coupled with the uncertainty of how Brexit will affect the plant and machinery sectors, WH Bond has made the decision to retire the plant hire and agricultural machinery sales division of the business culminating in the unreserved auction dates of 3rd and 4th October.

Chris Bond comments, “Since 1957 when, WH Bond was founded, we have always been proud of our ability to identify trends in the market, which led the family to become the ‘serial diversifiers’ we are today. For the last 62 years this has enabled the business to survive and thrive, and now, once again, we are doing just that. We are looking at our core business, making the right decision for the group, and diversifying.”

“Due to market conditions, coupled with the uncertainty of how Brexit will affect the plant and machinery sectors, WH Bond has made the decision to retire the plant hire and agricultural machinery sales businesses. This will enable the management to focus on developing the farming, timber and contracting side of the business, with future diversification into new and exciting projects. Bond Timber, bespoke contracting and agricultural businesses will continue trading as usual. ”
