Househam Sprayers: A trusted supplier for the farming sector

Househam Sprayers is a great Lincolnshire manufacturing success story.

Based in Woodhall Spa, the home of the famous ‘Dam Busters’, its headquarters are home to 80 staff who support the design, build and export of its self-propelled sprayers around the world.

Managing director, Robert Willey, said: “We’re very proud of the sprayers that are designed and built on site and we export our sprayers around the world. I’m supported by a talented team of engineering, manufacturing and sales staff who all work hard to deliver machines which are both ‘fit for purpose’ and which can and do support the farming industry.”

Efficiency and cost effectiveness are key considerations for farms. Househam Sprayers helps farmers maximise productivity while minimising costs with accurate and efficient machinery and GPS systems.

For almost 30 years, Househam has relied on the services of Duncan & Toplis for its expertise in agriculture and manufacturing, as Robert Willey explains.

“Their detailed understanding of the business supports us effectively and we have a partnership built on solid foundations of trust and understanding.

“Our business is very seasonal and there are unique challenges working in agriculture - having an accountancy practice that understands this, and our business, is critical. 

“Michele and her team understand our sector and the industry. The advice has been essential in keeping our compliance in order.

“In 2018, the advice and support proved vital as we consolidated our operations to our site in Woodhall Spa.”

The future plans for the Lincolnshire firm include continued expansion into emerging markets such as Russia, Poland and New Zealand as it builds its global reputation.

Michele Coe-Baxter, director for Duncan & Toplis, said:  “Lincolnshire is often called the ‘bread basket’ of England for its strong agricultural sector and it’s companies like Househam that are powering food production at home and abroad. Robert and his team have worked extremely hard over the past 30 years, and it’s been a privilege to support them along the way.

“When it comes to designing and manufacturing agricultural machinery that continues to meet the needs of the modern farmer, they’re the experts. The team at Househam have chosen us as their accountants year after year for our expertise in this sector.”
