Agricultural parts retailer MDT has opened a new depot in Framlingham, with the help of former Farming Minister Sir Jim Paice, who is originally from the town.

He cut the ribbon at the new store at a special event on Friday, April 17. It adds a new call-in trade counter service for local farmers and mechanics, a much wider range of products and three new staff to MDT’s successful agricultural supply business.

“I have known Mark for 30 years or more and seen his business grow, so I am delighted to open these new premises,” said Sir Jim, who is standing down as MP in the election after 28 years.

“Farmers still like to trade with people they know - as long as they are competitive - so congratulations to Mark and his team.”

MDT managing director Mark Donsworth said: “We hold over 20,000 items from tractor and machinery parts to lubricants, welding and wellies.”
