Davimac owner Shannon McNab says Agrowplow is a good name and a good product on the Australian landscape.

"We plan to continue manufacturing Agrowplow equipment incorporating the traditional Australian hallmarks of quality, reliability, simplicity and robustness," he says.

McNab adds while both companies will share common ownership, the two businesses will be run independently  but in a complementary manner, taking advantage of common componentry and manufacturing scale where appropriate.

Both companies are based in Central West NSW, making them logistically close.

In terms of customer contact, continuity will be maintained with Wade Smith running Agrowplow and Neil Willsmore in contact with the dealer and distributor network.

The full range of Agrowplow products and parts are expected to be fully refreshed in the short term.

 "This is a positive investment in future business for our family company, for Davimac and for Agrowplow, and should be seen as an affirmation of confidence by our many farmer customers," McNab says.

Established in 1982 and still family-owned, Davimac is a leading engineering firm specialising in the development of direct drills, disc planters, chaser bins, small seed boxes and a pasture seeder.
