Ross Agri Services Ltd was established in 1972 as a partnership run by Bill and Ethel Ross as a Farming Machine Hire business. Hiring farm equipment to local farmers proved to be so popular that Agricultural Contracting was added to the business in 1976 and rapidly followed by the purchase of a spare parts business.
Contracting was the mainstay of the business until economic circumstances made it more affordable and cost effective for farmers to acquire their own machinery. RAS Ltd recognised this trend early on and the focus of the company changed to encompass the sale and maintenance of quality tractors and other farming machinery. The companies reputation for reliability and service was recognised in 1988 by the awarding of the prestigious Fendt Franchise.
The Ross family have always sought to expand their business in a manageable, sustainable way. At all times being proud of the reputation they have gained and as a result Martin Ross joined the company in 2000 taking responsibilty for Sales, Administration, Maintenance and the Welding and Fabrication Workshops, (bought by the company in 1996) leaving Bill Ross to focus on the Contracting and Parts departments.
RAS Ltd developed an enviable reputation for reliability and problem solving for their growing customer base. Due to the demand for the excellent services provided and to meet the company's expansion aspiration to increase its distribution footprint, a second depot was opened in Turriff in 2005 followed by the appointment of Raymond Henderson as a sub dealership based in Caithness in 2008. By expanding the distribution network RAS Ltd increased its customer focus to become the leading supplier of new and used agricultural machinery and equipment in Scotland, supplying and maintaining Fendt and Challenger Tractors, CAT Telehandlers, Schaffer Loaders, McHale and Krone Grassland Equipment, Major Equipment, Gregoire Besson Tillage, Claydon Drills and KRM Machinery.
From the first tractor in 1972 the company has continued to grow and invest in the latest 3D Solidworks Design Software System that runs alongside a fully equipped CNC Machine Shop complete with a Welding & Fabrication Facility. These facilities enable RAS Ltd to offer the complete package required by both the Agricultural and Oil & Gas Sectors by taking the initial concept through to completion
Osteopathy is a natural approach to health. It is a way of looking at and treating damaged parts of the body such as muscles, ligaments, nerves and joints. Osteopaths treat a variety of common conditions including repetitive strain injury, postural problems caused by driving or work strain, the pain of arthritis and sports injuries.
Osteopathy may alleviate those types of aches, pains and headaches arising from dysfunction within the musculo-skeletal system that can result from either chronic conditions or acute injuries in people of all ages.
