David Brown Tractor Club
Supporting fellow businesses in West Yorkshire
Near our premises in Huddersfield a man was born and bred called David Brown, he owned a company called David Brown Tractors based in Meltham. Apart from the thousands of tractors that were built there and sold all around the globe, he also purchased a failing car company that was called Aston Martin and also another company called Lagonda.
Most of us have heard of the beautiful DB5 which is the car made famous by the James Bond films. Well David Brown is the ‘DB’ in the DB Aston Martins!!!
Although Sir David Brown passed away in 1993, his legacy still lives on today in his DB initialled luxury sports cars.
The DB Tractor Club informed us they were having a photo shoot at the original David Brown Works with one of the very first tractors built there as well as the last ever to roll off the production line & asked if we could loan them one of our Aston’s to complete the line up.
Now although we were clean out of the DB models, we jumped at the opportunity & were honoured for them to choose a fabulous V8 Vantage Roadster in Toro red (to complement the tractors).

The Birthplace of Rugby League
Our company has been involved with all sports, in particular rugby league for the last 50 years. The team we support are Huddersfield Giants.
This is one of our Directors Tim Marsden supporting Jermaine McGillvary while playing for England in the recent Rugby League World Cup where Jermaine, who was born in Huddersfield and plays for Super League Team Huddersfield Giants was Englands most prolific try scorer throughout the tournament.
We'd love you to come and buy a vehicle from us, but if Tim picks the phone up and you're in a bit of a rush, it might be wise not to mention Rugby League, or he'll have you talking for hours.View the Giants
Proud Sponsors of the Huddersfield Giants
Under 19s Ladies Team
Although we are not a big franchised main dealer we have over many years tried to give a bit back and helped local teams out with sponsorship as well as schools.
This year we are are proud to tell the world that we have secured a sponsorship deal with the Huddersfield Giants ladies under 19s Rugby League Team.
We are the main shirt sponsor's and hopefully this will be continued when they join the superleague in 2019.
When recently at a Giants home game, an elderly Gentleman who said he'd watched the Giants lads play for the last 40 years asked us "why on eck have you sponsored women to play Rugby?"
"Because it's about time we did", was one of our ladies reply. He looked at us a bit odd then moved seats.
By the way, the young man smiling happily on the photo in the middle of the ladies is our very own Kyle. Kyle has been with us now for some four years and although sport isn't his forte, we thought we'd get him involved with our passion, On the quiet, I think he quite enjoyed the moment.Learn about the Ladies Team
