FTMTA Announces Partnership With Wilsons Auctions

The Farm Tractor & Machinery Trade Association (FTMTA) has announced that the Association will partner with Wilsons Auctions on the upcoming second FTMTA Farm Machinery Trade Auction to take place at Punchestown Event Centre near Naas on Saturday, February 24th.

Making the announcement, Gary Ryan, FTMTA CEO, stated that “the Association are pleased to partner with a firm of the scale, history and reputation of Wilsons Auctions in further developing our FTMTA Farm Machinery Trade Auction. The purpose for FTMTA in introducing this new member service during 2017 was to provide an additional sales channel for our members and it is important that we are aligned with an auctioneer who can support that aim to the best possible extent.”

Commenting on the appointment of Wilsons Auctions as the auctioneers for the FTMTA Farm Machinery Trade Auction, Ricky Wilson, Company Director & Head of Irish Operations, said “Wilsons Auctions have 82 years’ experience auctioning tractors, agricultural machinery and plant. Our company was founded on auctioneering for the farming community so naturally we are delighted to have been entrusted by the Farm Tractor & Machinery Trade Association to be the auctioneers at the Punchestown event on Saturday 24th February. With eight Plant and Machinery auctions each month in our branches throughout Ireland and the UK, Wilsons Auctions have the expertise required to deliver a successful agricultural machinery auction event at Punchestown and we are looking forward to developing further our relationship with FTMTA”

As before, the auction will facilitate the sales of lots coming from FTMTA member firms only; lots from other sources will not be considered. The auction will accept lots from all FTMTA member firms including retail dealers, manufacturers and distributors and will be unreserved in nature meaning that all lots will sell on the day.

Viewing will be open at Punchestown, which has proved to be a highly suitable venue for such an event, on the day prior to the auction, Friday, February 23rd. Full details, including photographs, of most lots will be available online through the Plant & Machinery section on the Wilsons Auctions website at in advance of the auction. Bidding will be possible onsite, online or through a pre bid service.
