Early JCBs on show at West Mid Show

West Mid Show in Ridgway History

As the Shropshire County Agricultural Show (or West Mid Show as formerly known!) quickly approaches, we have been busy preparing for our stand and discovered these wonderful old pictures belonging to our company founder Bob Jones – RAJ (Mechanisations) Ltd.

RAJ (Mechanisations) Ltd. at West Mid Show

The pictures are of our company stand back in the early 1960’s showing a selection of early JCB machines. Back in those days, the farmers would come from miles around hoping to discover the latest in farm techniques and machinery, meet the suppliers and even settle their dues for the previous year!

Returning after 50 Years

So, it looks like we are returning after 50 years to show the farming community and people of Shropshire a selection of plant hire machinery from our fleet along with some of our used machinery for sale. We look forward to meeting & greeting you all, so please come and find us! 

Come and See us!

Our stand is in the machinery section with a selection of our Plant Hire Fleet on display including one of our latest JCB 13 Ton Excavators, some telehandlers available to buy plus lots of refreshments and goodies and even a competition!

Wishing success 2019

The show boasts that it is “a successful and popular family event that attracts thousands of people” – here’s hoping 2019 will be a good year with a great turnout and the sun shining on us for the day!
