CKD Galbraith Officially Launch Central Scotland Hub

CKD Galbraith's new Central Scotland rural 'hub' is to be officially opened by Stirling Council's former Provost, Bailie Colin O'Brien on Tuesday, September 13th 2011.

Our rural team relocated to the Stirling Agricultural Centre from Glasgow in the summer to allow for significant expansion of its rural, agricultural and agency services.

Currently staffed by 22 personnel, the team provides comprehensive property services to the agricultural and rural sectors.

A new national Farm Sales office now operates from the Centre, which is also United Auctions' (UA's) headquarters, with whom the firm has a four-year alliance.

In addition to farm sales and purchases, the rural team specialises in the management and sale of estates and woodland, valuations and building surveying work.

Bailie Colin O'Brien will officially declare the new office open for business before an expected audience of 150 clients, staff, elected members and the local business community. He said: "On behalf of the Council, I welcome the opening of this new office with its diverse range of rural services that complements the role of the Centre and Stirling's place at the heart of Scotland's agricultural industry."

James Galbraith, Chairman of CKD Galbraith, said: "We're delighted to officially launch our new office in the Stirling Agricultural Centre. It's a vibrant market place for the farming community, ideally located in the centre of Scotland, which affords us easy access and proximity to all our clients and our other offices across the country.

"We have watched as UA has developed its business at Stirling, making it the mart of choice for a very large number of livestock farmers. The high throughput of stock brings a large number of farmers to the Centre and provides us with great opportunity for vital face-to-face contact with clients and other contacts at the weekly sales."

David Leggat MBE, Executive Chairman of UA, Scotland's leading livestock auctioneers, said: "We're pleased to welcome CKD Galbraith's new rural office, which strengthens the proposition of our Agricultural Centre. Importantly, our customers now have instant access to the alliance, a benefit which has already seen a number of farms coming onto the market."
