Opico

 
OPICO is one of Britain's largest independent distributors of agricultural machinery with over four decades of experience and knowledge of the trade.

 History

 The company was established in Essex in 1966 as the daughter company of the “OPenheimer Intercontinental COrporation” an American agricultural machinery export business. The shortened OPICO name was used from the start for obvious reasons and has become synonymous with innovative concepts within the industry.

OPICO introduced machinery lines such as Hesston to the UK as well as importing some of the first Round Balers, Retrofit Turbo Chargers and large Disc Harrows. However, the success of the company and the product that farmers knew OPICO for until recent years was based around the recirculating batch Grain Dryer.

The company was established and built up by Jeremy Coleclough who moved it first to Spalding and then to Bourne in Lincolnshire, to a purpose built 45,000sq/ft Grain Dryer assembly factory in 1984.

In 1989 Jeremy became sole owner and ran the company until 2007 when he decided to retire after holding the reigns for over four decades.

In 2007 James Woolway, the Sales Director at that time, bought out the OPICO trading company and became the new owner and in 2008 moved to a new 50,000sq/ft factory in Bourne where the company still resides today
