The Kidderminster-based company says it has already recruited some of the UK’s largest suppliers as stockists, including Mole Avon, Michael Grigg, North West Timber Treatments, Hales Sawmills and Cornwall Farmers.

M&M launched the machine rounded and pointed Agricised range as a response to a fall in market confidence of the performance of treated timber products.

The lower section of Agricised posts are incised to increase the penetration of timber treatment in the critical timber post zone which is more susceptible to rot.

Commercial manager Andy Hodge said he was pleased that such a large number of orders had been received.

The Agricised range is treated with Osmose Celcure UC4 preservative treatment.
