History of Coars


2014
We joined the social networking site Facebook to keep our customers up to date with all our latest news and offers.

Coars (NE) Ltd. moved to new and improved larger premises on Leeming Bar Industrial Estate. The move became necessary due to the rapid growth of the Company.

We expanded the high quality Coars Dairy Hygiene range, which is designed to meet the requirements of the modern Dairy Farmer.
2013
We updated our website to help promote the extensive range of products and superb service that we offer.
2012
Celebrated 30 years of service to the farming community by having an open day at our main premises in Garstang. We currently have stores at Garstang, Lancashire, Leeming Bar, North Yorkshire and a Market Shop at Skipton Cattle Market, North Yorkshire and employ 30 staff, consisting of Van Salesmen, Dairy Engineers, Delivery Drivers, Shop Assistants and Office Workers. Customer satisfaction has always been a main priority for the Company and this is how we have hopefully built such a solid reputation within a competitive market place.
