The Machinery Ring revolves around the supply and demand of goods and services between members.

 

Everyday at HBS Ring we take a huge number of incoming calls, which is how we like it, as no calls means no business!

With each quarterly newsletter issued to all Ring members, we encourage members to RING THE RING FOR ANYTHING and with 12 full or part time staff each call will be met with a different expertise, no one can be an expert in all areas though we would hope that whoever answers your call is polite, cheerful, friendly and efficient and will either take a message, deal with your request or pass your call onto the relevant member of staff.

WORKING TOGETHER TO SAVE MONEY

HBS Ring Ltd originated from the amalgamation of three companies each trading in their own right. These consisted of Highland Farmers, which began in 1994, Highland Agricultural Labour Services setup in 1996 and Highland Machinery Ring, which was the first to be setup in 1988. The customer/member base was similar across all three companies, it was therefore believed it would be more beneficial to all members if the full range of services were offered through one business. The three companies amalgamated in April 2001 and HBS Ring Ltd was formed.

A decision was taken in 2006 to resurrect HALS to meet the rules and regulations set out by SAOS, whereby a machinery ring acts as an agent only. This means that commodities, training courses and non Member to Member labour are  invoiced through HALS Ltd.

The Ring concept is simple. Work required out for a demander is organised by the Ring, which contacts the most appropriate and nearest supplier and charges a modest 2% commission to cover it’s overheads. The prices charged are between demander and supplier and are open to negotiation. However most Rings produce an annual price guide for members’ information.

HOW CAN WE HELP?

The member’s point of contact for all requests in the HBS Ring Ltd office, where the staff will match the requests with services available. 

The Demander (you) calls the office with the service they require; when it is required; and if there is a preference for which Supplier is used. The office staff has all the necessary information at their fingertips on the large computer database, therefore can find which members have this service available and how far away they are from the Demander. If no preference has been given as to who will carry out the work, the nearest Supplier will be contacted and if they can not complete it the next nearest will be tried until a Supplier can be found to do the job.
