SAC Consulting Opens Hexham Location

Following the recent shift to a main base in the J36 Rural Auction Centre at Kendal SAC Consulting England has consolidated its service for local famers and rural businesses.

SAC Consulting England has managed this by forging a new working relationship with a leading veterinary practice in Hexham.

“We identified the potential to use office space at Scott Mitchell Associates over 12 months ago,” explained Neil Carter, SAC Consulting England’s Regional Manager. “Their office at the thriving Tyne Green Mart in Hexham is ideally placed for us to meet clients. The potential it offers for a closer working relationship between them and our SAC Vet Services colleagues is quite exciting.”

Scott Mitchell Associates is a large, successful veterinary practice providing care to domestic pets as well as farm animals and equine. Established in 2001, the practice has grown and now boasts a purpose built facility on the site with 11 vets plus 25 support staff, operating 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

This latest development is in line with a programme broadening the geographic coverage of SAC Consulting and opening services to an area extending from their St Boswells office in the Scottish Borders, through now to Hexham and down to Kendal.

Neil Carter adds;
“We see the Hexham mart site as a support hub for the local farming community, where farmers can get any and all support needed, and SAC Consulting working alongside Scott Mitchell Associates can supply a large proportion of that support.”

“This is an exciting opportunity for Scott Mitchell Associates,” states Lee-Anne Oliver, “We are looking forward to working in partnership with Neil and SAC, strengthening our stakeholder relations and moving the practice progressively in a positive way. SAC offer a wealth of experience and support farmers – I’m sure that farmers can benefit from the complimenting services that each organisation can provide”.

Starting from this month SAC Consulting will be using office space at Scott Mitchell Associates practice 2 days per week, targeting mart days initially on Tuesdays and Fridays.

SAC Consulting is one of the main providers of agricultural and rural support in the North of England offering one to one farmer consultancy through to partnership work on large regional projects, most notably the Animal Health Planning project delivered under Livestock North West which received national praise for its impact. More recently activity has focussed Fieldfare Associates a successful training company based in Kendal.
