About Us

Borders Machinery Ring (BMR), the first Ring to be formed in the UK in February 1987 by 23 farmers and contractors, has the aim of rationalising labour, machinery and input costs. There are now 9 rings in Scotland and 8 in England and Wales.

Since 1987 BMR has grown to offer its members a constantly increasing range of benefits to help sustain and improve business viability. Currently, there are over 975 Private, Labour and Full members. Turnover is around £6 million.

Based from our Galashiels office, we cover an area from Berwick to Biggar and Edinburgh to Alnwick.
