Wynnstay, the agricultural supplies group, has announced that it has acquired Tamar Milling Limited, a manufacturer and supplier of blended feed products, based in Whitstone, Cornwall.
Tamar Milling supplies a range of mixed feed rations for dairy cows, cattle, and sheep, mainly in the southwest of England. Tamar also operates a successful ‘on-farm’ grain milling service for farmers wanting to use home-grown or purchased grain in their livestock rations. Following its acquisition, Tamar’s founder, Nick Furse, will join Wynnstay in a senior commercial feed role and continue to lead Tamar’s operations.
The acquisition of Tamar is part of Wynnstay’s continued strategy to develop its offering to customers in the southwest of England, where it already has a network of depots and a field-based team of specialists. It also establishes Wynnstay with its first feed manufacturing facility in the region, enabling it to provide its own bulk feed offering in the area.
Gareth Davies, Chief Executive Officer of Wynnstay Group plc, commented:
“Tamar is a long-established, high-quality manufacturer and supplier of blended animal feed and ‘on-farm’ grain milling services to farmers in the southwest of England. Like Wynnstay, it places a strong emphasis on customer service and has a significant customer base.
“This acquisition increases our presence in the southwest, adds new farmer customers and provides us with our first feed manufacturing facility in the area. We look forward to working with our new colleagues and to continuing Tamar’s successful growth.”
