We’re excited to introduce our new Branch Manager for POM, Clinton Barry.
Clinton brings over 30-years’ of Aftersales Service and Sales experience to our Port Moresby team. He also brings a deep knowledge of Agri products including tractors, implements, heavy machinery and trucks.
His passion is to provide the best possible service to small, single vehicle/ machine owner operators right through to major fleet customers, government departments and large corporations. Whether it’s selling a single bolt for a tractor – or a giant piece of heavy equipment – Clinton always provides the best possible service and then backs it up with the Aftersales support to ensure the machinery is work hard for the client. Notably, Clinton brings a unique perspective to our team, having spent approximately 5 years working in the beautiful country of PNG. He arrived at the age of 21 and instantly fell in love with our country and its incredible people. His extensive travels across the nation, from the captivating mountains and highlands to the picturesque coastal areas and enchanting islands, have granted him a profound understanding of PNG’s diverse geography. Clinton has expressed his joy to be part of a PNG owned company that gives back to the community; and we are just as glad to have him on board!

This year’s Morobe Show marked a significant success for the Brian Bell Agriculture team. Notably, we established a distinct presence with a separate stall from Brian Bell Homecentre, a strategic move aimed at emphasizing Brian Bell Agriculture’s independent standing as a key player in the agricultural sector in Papua New Guinea.
Securing a premium location, we showcased our comprehensive range of agricultural machinery outside the stall, while presenting our seeds and industrial products within. The diligent efforts of our Tech Services team, led by Justus, were instrumental in preparing and securing the building over the course of a week. They also joined us to showcase their expertise, highlighting services such as water pump setup and solar-powered lighting and fridges.
Collaborating with Fincorp, our strategic partner in equipment financing, we shared the stall to introduce an exciting product offering tailored for small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) and farmers.
Throughout the two-day event, our Agriculture team efficiently managed the stall, with one team on Saturday and another on Sunday, receiving valuable support from Ishai Tamir and Janoah Smith from POM. Security was expertly handled by both the Tech Services team and our contracted security firm, Millennium.
The response from the audience was remarkable, with keen interest expressed by farmers, SMEs, and promising sales leads from major agricultural businesses such as Trukai, Mainland Holdings, NBPOL/Ramu Sugar, and Rumion.
Our vibrant display was further enhanced by the presence of the captivating ‘Asaro mud men,’ representing the elusive spirit of the Eastern Highlands. These figures became an unofficial mascot, adding a unique and memorable touch to our booth.
Encouraged by this success, we are already looking ahead to the Morobe Show in 2024, where we plan to deliver an even more significant and impactful presence.
Brian Bell Agriculture facilitated the sale of two L5740 Kubota tractors to Air Niugini. These powerful tractors are well-known for their durability and efficiency, making them ideal for the task of pulling cargo at the airport. Equipped with advanced features, these tractors ensure smooth and swift movement of goods, contributing to the overall efficiency of Air Niugini’s cargo handling operations.
Additionally, Brian Bell Agriculture provided Air Niugini with two high-quality light towers. These light towers are indispensable for maintaining proper illumination, especially during night-time operations. Ensuring a well-lit working environment is crucial for safety and efficiency, and these towers are designed to deliver powerful, consistent illumination across the airport’s cargo handling areas.
Moreover, the transaction included a 600-litre fuel tank complete with a nozzle and flow meter. This fuel tank is essential for ensuring that the tractors and other machinery operate seamlessly without interruptions. The inclusion of a high-quality nozzle and flow meter enhances precision during refueling, minimizing wastage, and ensuring optimal use of resources.
