Welcome to BAGMA
I would like to extend a personal welcome to all those that are accessing BAGMA’s web site for whatever reason and encourage you to take the time to explore what we offer to industry and to members in terms of support and members benefits.
Our site is new and will be evolving over time. Importantly, it provides an introduction to and information about what we offer and links to BAGMA’s parent group bira where our member benefits and services can be viewed.
The British Agricultural and Garden Machinery Association (BAGMA), is the current name for the dealer trade organisation that was first established in 1917 as the National Association of Agricultural Engineers and Implement Dealers and has progressed through the last ninety or so years becoming BAGMA in 1972.
One of the main roles of BAGMA over the many years has been to ensure that new people are drawn into the land based industry sector and that they have access to training and apprentice programmes to ensure that they are fully trained to meet the developing technology that our industry uses, enjoys and benefits from.
BAGMA provides its members with a comprehensive package of benefits from legal; aide to special retail credit card rates, business services, access to direct buying and a host of financial services and benefits through its group bank bira finance.
BAGMA represents the interests of its members and industry at a government level and with suppliers and campaigns to improve the trading conditions for dealers within the UK by working together with other industry partners.
As President, I would like to encourage members to make the most of their membership and to take part in BAGMA activities that are intended to help develop dealers and industry develop in successful harmony.
John Barrett, President
