Kirkby Diamond helps farm machinery supplier to keep growing

January 26, 2023

Kirkby Diamond has completed two leasehold property acquisitions for a leading supplier of agricultural machinery to help it expand its operations across the country.

Oliver Landpower Ltd, a main JCB Agricultural machinery dealership alongside other market leading machinery brands, has agreed deals on new depots in Stratford-Upon-Avon in Warwickshire and Colchester in Essex.

Andrew Dudley, consultant at Kirkby Diamond in Milton Keynes, led the negotiations on behalf of Oliver Landpower and has been involved in a further six acquisitions for the company over the last 10 years. Kirkby Diamond provides a range of services for the company.

In Stratford, Oliver Landpower has agreed a 10-year lease on an 11,000 sq ft depot on a 4.86-acre site at Goose Lane in Upper Quinton. In Colchester, it has agreed a 15-year lease on a 9,200 sq ft depot on a 0.8-acre site at Heckworth Close, Severalls Industrial Park.

Andrew said: “It is great to see Oliver Landpower successfully expanding its operations into new territories. Our work on behalf of the company saw an existing farm machinery business acquired while we negotiated the lease terms that became part of the wider business acquisition.

“Oliver Landpower was asked to acquire new premises in East Anglia for a new JCB franchise in the area. We negotiated the terms of the lease which included a major refurbishment by the landlord as part of the transaction. Our building surveyors acted for the company in undertaking surveys to inform the lease negotiation process and preparing schedules of condition.”
