Why Buy From Haynes

About Us

Established in 1790 in London, Haynes Bros Ltd is now the holding company for a group of subsidiary companies operating throughout the South East.

Moving to Kent in 1832, the Company was the first in the county to take on the Ford Motor Company franchise in 1911 and then sell and distribute the complete range of Ford cars, trucks and agricultural machinery.

Today it is the only privately owned company in the UK that still distributes these range of products, albeit now with different manufacturers given Ford Motor Company's departure from the truck and agricultural sectors. As part of this move, the Company has developed a relationship with Fiat Group and also now distributes their products via their subsidiaries, Iveco, New Holland and Case IH. It also has the JCB agricultural franchise as well as other leading makes of farm machinery.

The Company operates four subsidiary companies from seven locations in the South East.

Along with all these great brands we supply a large Range of Parts and accessories along with a Great range of Garden and professional machines from Husqvarna.
