UKCA Ltd, supply and install Controlled Atmosphere equipment for the storage of long term Top Fruit. The company was set up 15 years ago by Ken and Jon Hatch and has developed into a reputable business, a trusted name amongst Growers. Following on from a hugely successful 2018, which saw the completion of multiple installation projects, Ken has taken the opportunity to step down from the bustle of day to day operations. Jon has taken over as Managing Director and is keen to continue the expansion of the business and its offering to Growers; whilst maintaining quality and the personal service you would expect from a family business.

 

This exciting new chapter brings with it the privilege of being asked to join the team of main Sponsors for the National Fruit Show 2019. We have also welcomed a new Engineer to our team and coming soon the launch of our new online store.

If you are refurbishing a store, our Store sealant products from Ribbstyle are second to none and NEW for 2019 we are the proud UK supplier for premium Orchard equipment from Kuker Italy.

We are a small family business that was set up in 1974 by Nick and Barbara Seymour. Over the years the business has slowly but steadily evolved from a ‘man with a van’ to a key part of the fruit and vine industry. We are proud to have now been in business for over forty years and have been Fendt tractor dealers for more than thirty years with the narrow 200 series being our speciality.

 

We design, manufacture and supply specialist equipment for the fruit, vineyard and hop industry; from machines to prepare the land for planting, right through production to storage, grading and packing of fruit into boxes for sale. Our bespoke design and build table-top strawberry sprayers lead the way in this sector of the spraying market. We also carry out sales and service of Winery and juice processing machinery as the UK distributor for Bucher Vaslin equipment.

 

We are proud to continually look to innovations and the latest machinery technology and with that are very pleased to be the UK Supplier of the ProbotIQ X-Pert autonomous driverless system as an add-on for Fendt Vario tractors. Increasing efficiency is key to moving forward for all of us.

 

This machine would work best on fruit wall systems but overall it improves efficiencies at harvest
