A LOCAL family-run tractor dealership has been recognised for their four decades of service.

The Masons Kings dealership, which has a depot on the edge of Exmoor, has grown from a small firm to the 30th biggest dealer in the UK.

The company began in 1984, providing agricultural machinery, and now has depots across the south west and a work force of more than 100 employees.

Roger Prior, who owns the company, said they remained committed to ensuring customers are their priority. He said: “Masons Kings remain committed to its steadfast motto – providing premium support for premium products.

“This commitment not only reflects our past achievements but serves as a guiding principle for future endeavours in serving and supporting the needs of our valued customers and the community.”

It comes as the firm was visited by representatives from John Deere, to present the Masons Kings team with an award to recognise their 40 years of hard work.
