About Us

The Beginning

It all began back in 1996 when Adrian Orchard, a fully qualified technician, started Tractor Repairs & Spares Ltd as a home based business, working out of a service vehicle, with his wife  Pam doing the bookwork from home.

Today, Tractor Repairs & Spares Ltd have grown to include 45 staff and 4 branches. All situated in purpose built premises and offering outstanding service.

In 1997 Tractor Repairs & Spares Ltd was offered the Massey Ferguson agency and Adrian’s reputation around the region for quality workmanship and delivering on time was the reason the offer was made. Having progressed from the workshop floor, he has an excellent knowledge of the industry. Adrian has a very good team of employees, who embrace the company’s commitment to quality workmanship and giving the best possible service.

2007 saw the innovative step to open a branch in Seddon, another important area of Marlborough’s wine production. Although operating from small premises, the Seddon operation proved to be a valuable asset to the region and in 2010 the move was made to a purpose built site.

2010 was a big year for Tractor Repairs & Spares Ltd with the Seddon building and also being appointed AGCO’s agency for Massey Ferguson and Fendt in the Nelson region. A suitable workshop was found and the Nelson branch was born.

2016 was another step forward for Tractor Repairs & Spares Ltd with the purchase of TFM Tractors in Hastings. The TRS banners went up on a new premises at 1211 Omahu Road. With a small team ready to carry on the service and support that has become part of the Tractor Repairs and Spares Ltd culture.

As the company continues to expand the emphasis is still on Adrian’s core values of delivering first class service and support.
