Maghera-based Hillcrest Wholesale Ltd has been appointed as sole distributor for Forcefield Active Technology in Northern Ireland.

The Co Clare-based company supplies a range of mains, battery-powered and solar energisers for electric fencing systems plus all the associated fencing accessories.

“We are delighted to be involved with the team Forcefield,” said Hillcrest’s business manager Marcus Wenlock.

“The company’s product range adds a new dimension to our presence in the agri space. We will be wholesaling the Forcefield range to agricultural merchants across Northern Ireland.

“There is a growing emphasis within the dairy, beef and sheep sectors on making better use of grazed grass. The Forcefield product range has been specifically developed to help make this a reality.”

Hillcrest already supplies a range of products to the agri sector including, hardware, safety footware, clothing, tools, oils and machinery parts.

Forcefield’s Pat Freyne said the relationship forged with Hillcrest Wholesale will help boost the profile of electrical fencing systems within Northern Ireland’s grass based production sectors.

“Our products combine innovation and reliability,” he added.

“We pride ourselves as a leader in electronic fencing technologies for the farming sector. There is tremendous scope for farmers in Northern Ireland to make better use of grazed grass. Having a reliable and versatile fencing system in place is key to making this happen.

“Experience with the Forcefield range has proven its ability to work in all grassland-based scenarios.”
