Almost 60 years of service to Irish Agriculture
Murphy’s Motors was awarded the Fordson tractor franchise in 1960, selling the extemely popular Fordson Dexta and Fordson Major ranges. When Ford rationalised their worldwide tractor operations in the 1960’s, the brand name was changed to Ford and a new range of tractors, the 2000 – 5000 series was introduced in 1965.
This range of tractors was the most technically advanced available at the time, and Murphy’s Motors business grew rapidly as a result of the combination of a world class product and an unrivalled reputation for service to their customers. The supply of 25 tractors to the State Transport Company, CIE, in 1969 was a key moment in the growth of the company, and a demonstration of the capability of Murphy’s Motors.
Today Murphy’s Motors holds 21 franchises from some of the largest manufacturers in the world, such as New Holland, Farmhand, Krone,Kane Trailers, Rossmore Engineering, Pro-Dig Attachments, Shelbourne Reynolds, Tanco and Alo-Maskiner.
The 15 strong team at Murphy’s Motors are very strongly focused on providing industry leading levels of customer service. This commitment is evident in the continuing investment in staff and management training and the introduction of new technology across the business.
