Dealers for the South East & East Coast
The Cooney Furlong Grain Company was founded in 1998 and is a primarily a general agri-business supplier to the South East. Both directors Kevin Cooney and Walter Furlong have between them over 75 years’ experience in the agri sector. Since 1998, the company has grown supplying a wide range of farm inputs including all types of seed, fertiliser, chemicals, farm equipment, animal feed stuffs and hardware.
In July 2014 the company expanded into the agri machinery business when the Vaderstad Franchise was acquired for the Midlands & South East of Ireland. This franchise made Cooney Furlong responsible for the sales, service and parts distribution of the Vaderstad brand for this area of the country. This was the beginning of the Cooney Furlong Machinery Company
In January 2018, we secured the franchise for CASE IH tractors and machinery for Wexford, Wicklow and Carlow. Partnering with such a well-established tractor brand that are one of the leaders in agricultural innovation was a large step in the company, and meant we now could offer our existing customer a broad spectrum of agri machinery in the South East .
Our new showroom and garage officially opened in November 2018 and is a purpose built state of the art premises. The centralised location at Enniscorthy together with our dedicated sales, parts and service team offering 24/7 customer service leave us well placed to meet the customer needs in the years ahead. Parts can be couriered from our base in Enniscorthy to anywhere in the country for next day delivery.
Our machinery offering increased with the acquisition of the Schaffer loader agency for Wexford, Carlow & Wicklow; covering the South East counties for sales, service and parts. Schaffer have been a well known name in both the telescopic and compact loader ranges throughout Europe, to be partnered with a brand that holds a high reputation for producing quality machinery further compliments our other brands, enabling us to offer a broad range of machines to our customers.
2019 brought the addition of two further brands under our umbrella Amazone and Krone in which we have the franchise for the South East of Ireland.
Amazone, based in Germany, are the specialists for fertiliser spreaders, seed drills, active (rotary cultivators and rotary harrows) and passive soil cultivation (disc cultivators and harrows), precision air seeders and crop protection sprayers. We have seen a substantial growth in this side of the business mainly due to GPS farming and also due to TAMS Tillage grants available to Irish farmers.
Krone, world class manufactures of grass machinery. Krone, manufacture modern forage harvesting equipment to the highest quality standards at the small village of Spelle in northern Germany. It is committed to continuously push the efficient farm machinery and this brand has generously contributed to our turnover increase. This mainly due to the large world market for milk and milk production is hugely important to Irish Agriculture and as a result farmers are buying more machinery to produce better quality grass. This range includes rakes, mowers, tedders, forage wagons and Square Balers.
In March 2020 we also introduced Goweil to our product range which complements our other lines of machinery we have on offer especially around baling and wrapping technology. These machines are extremely well built in Austria and are suited to the extreme conditions of grass here in Ireland. The range includes round balers and wrappers of which we are the sole importers of in Ireland. Recent demonstrations have indicated a high level of interest in this brand and we are confident that this brand is going to grow in the Irish market in the coming years.
