Claydon has become the European market leaders in strip till drilling with hundreds of direct drills and straw harrows working in over 20 countries across the world. Matthew Bowe, Product Development Manager, shares the benefits of the partnership.
“We have worked with Matt and the guys at Eastern for a couple of years now and we are delighted to have developed a fantastic working relationship with them.
“It’s great to work with a forward-thinking company, who are happy to put themselves out and really work hard to deliver excellent customer service.
“Matt, Tony and the guys are always there to help us when we really need it, and as a result, we have shifted our OEM hose kits across to Eastern’s production facility.
“The kits we receive are high quality and well-engineered which is important as they machines we build are extremely complex and constantly evolving.
“We set very high standards for ourselves as a business and therefore ask that our suppliers share these standards. I am happy to say this is where Eastern stands out from its competitors.
“The Manuli product is second to none and having worked with it for over 12 months, I can really see the benefits in using such a high-quality OEM product. As Eastern has grown, it has continued to invest in its production facility and stock – we have really felt the benefits of this desire to keep moving forward.
“Eastern is efficient and accurate with the work that they carry out and the turnaround is a lot quicker than companies we have used in the past.
“The warranty gives us peace of mind should we ever experience an issue but to date we have had none. A reduction in hose failure since working with Eastern and Manuli has saved us time and money.
“We look forward to continuing to work with them in the future and would happily recommend them to any other potential customers.”
