Acres Insurance Acres Insurance Brokers was started with a single, simple aim which is to provide farmers with the customer service and independent insurance advice they deserve. As independent brokers our core business is geared towards supporting the rural community. Understanding your business and its uniqueness is essential to us. Our strength is in the personal focus of our team to ensure we deliver the right products and gain the right result for our clients. The practical farming knowledge of our team, combined with the insurance expertise our brokers deliver, ensures we can provide the solutions you need. We are working on behalf of the client not the insurance company. Within the Acres team of brokers and handlers you will find experienced and knowledgeable staff who have been working within the insurance sector for many decades. What makes us stand out from any other brokerage is that our staff know what it is like to be part of the farming community by either growing up on a family farm or being a hands-on farmer themselves, this linked with their extensive insurance knowledge allows us to understand your requirements and make the best recommendations to suit your circumstances.

Agriweld Efficiency, simplicity and innovation are always at the forefront of all our designs, and we are constantly thinking up new ways to do things. Technology plays a large part in our design work. By using "Solid Works" computer software we can achieve working products on our computer screen before we have even thought about cutting any steel! Back in 1992 it was a very different process. Back in 1992, all we had to work with was paper drawings and templates, which was very time consuming and inaccurate. Our first profile cutter used paper drawings and a magic eye, we never had two components the same! Manufacturing was difficult but we stuck with it and progressed to better equipment as we grew. It all seems a long time ago now, and we are very proud to have come such a long way, since those early years. The Original Quickshift was the first product we designed and manufactured and has proved to be very popular and is still going strong over 25 years later! The Quickshift range has now expanded to four products; the Original Quickshift, the Basic Quickshift, the 8 Tonne Quickshift and the Fixedshift. For more information, please visit www.agriweld.co.uk
