Major robbery at F.R.Jones and Son

Just to let you all know it was our turn last night, we had a major break in and had over 200 machines stolen from one of our units. Mainly Stihl every model of chainsaw, hand held blowers, hedge cutters, and kombi systems.

If you here of anything please PM me.

We are trying to process all the orders as normal but there may be a slight delay.

The show will still go ahead without a hitch, and we now have a security team staying there overnight until the place is secure again.

Look your gear up and keep your eyes peeled.

Cheers,

Justin.

Really sorry to hear that Justin. They obviously knew you'd be well stocked up for the show too.

That's bad news indeed!
Will keep an ear to the ground, but I suppose most of it if not all will be abroad by now. Hopefully you're well insured?
