The Companies We Work With

What Our Suppliers Say…

Since 2015 KWS UK have been working in a variety selection partnership with Sentry. The relationship is based on sharing detailed knowledge of varieties from an early stage, and then linking this shared knowledge in with Sentry’s agronomy, seed supply and marketing agreements.

The success of this initiative has been a result of built-up knowledge and trust, with the ability to share information in a transparent and confidential manner. We continue to develop the relationship year on year and are delighted to have been given the opportunity to work with Sentry on innovating this crucial part of the supply process.

KWS UK

ADM Agriculture provide Sentry with a bespoke marketing service across all combinable crops. The relationship enables Sentry to have direct access to ADM’s UK assets which include flour milling, oilseed crushing and human consumption pulse processing. Crop and varietal performance, gross margin analysis, end consumer demand profiles, as well as detailed and frequent market analysis are the foundations for all decisions taken.

Our strong and enduring relationship with Sentry is built on mutual trust and regular business to business dialogue at all levels within both companies.

Witham Group are proud to be the preferred supplier of agricultural lubricants and greases to Sentry for 15+ years.

Sentry consistently demand, high quality and industry approved lubricants for their tractor and machinery fleets. Through the organising of technical lubrication surveys, Witham Group have, in conjunction with Sentry, made the application of lubricants simpler, rationalised product grades, and most of all shown significant savings without jeopardising warranty, even on brand new machinery. Sentry owned farms and Sentry Business Solutions Members appreciate this new approach to lubrication, as do Witham Group.

We are proud to have been selected by Sentry as a supplier that can consistently meet their high expectations.

Sentry have always been a forward-thinking business and keen to adopt new technologies, this has given John Deere the opportunity to trial and develop these new concepts in the field. In return Sentry’s expertise assists us in understanding the value and customer benefits of our products, a true win win partnership.
