Agricultural Materials, Machinery and Food Marketing Cooperative Ltd
The cooperative operates in the fields of importing, manufacturing and marketing the following items: chemical fertilisers, agricultural pesticides, plant seed, tractors, all kinds of agricultural and non-agricultural tools and appliances, transportation vehicles and spare parts, nutrition and hygiene materials.
The cooperative commenced functioning in 1972 as Commercial Supplies Unit linked to Kooperatif Central Bank Ltd, in order to supply the agricultural inputs to Turkish farmers and villagers so they would not have to rely on Greek merchants. Since the 1st of April 1978, it has pursued its activities at three separate units (agricultural machinery, agricultural materials, feed for animals materials units), in order to meet needs for feed and vehicles.
Since its establishment, working intensively, the units have met the community’s need for agricultural tools and appliances as far as they have been able and in accordance with cooperative principles.
In 2005, as a result of changes to banking legislation by the TRNC government, the businesses operating under our bank have become separate companies, incorporated as shareholdings of the bank. In this way, the Agricultural Materials, Machinery and Food Nutrients Marketing Cooperative Ltd have come into existence.
The cooperative commenced its activities in 2006. Striving to meet the needs of our farmers by sourcing materials worldwide, the cooperative holds the North Cyprus franchise of many companies, including: from Turkey: Hektaş (agricultural pesticide), Türk Traktör (New Holland), Pancar Motor, Yağmur Tarım (manual tractor and hoe); from Germany: Agco (Fendt), Plantaflor (Favorit) (Torf); from Italy: Agrimendo (pesticide machinery), Gallignani (bundling machinery Gaspardo (grass cutting), BCS, Lombardini; from Spain: Goizper; from İsrael: Haifa Chemicals (fertilisers for leaves), Zeraim (vegetable grains); from Holland: Simonis (pesticide); and from the USA: Seminis (Royal Sluis) (vegetable grains) The cooperative also purchases (and subsequently markets) food nutrients, chemical fertilisers and agricultural machinery from many companies through tenders. Our firm stocks all spare parts for the vehicles it sells and services equipment itself.
