COPY LETTER to The Agricultural Engineers' Association from R. & J. Reeves & Son Ltd.  TR REE/AD2/1  1941(30 Oct)

Contents:
Concerning sales prices of Reeves' goods, which were controlled through the A.E.A., and their need for revision due to threatened wage rises. Reeves' employees had until recently been recruited from local residents, had been trained at the works and were non-union. Numbers were cut down during the depression and work divided into two half years, one for servicing haymaking and harvesting machinery and the other for implement manufacture, 80% of output being sold wholesale through agents. Pre-war A.E.A. selling prices were based on mass production costs, mainly inapplicable to Reeves' production whose pre-war wages were nearer to agricultural workers than district rates for engineering and allied trades. Reeves were recently scheduled as a Protected Establishment which meant revision of rates of pay and therefore about 15-20% rises in sales prices would be required to compensate for this. The A.E.A. reply is not extant but 'as a result of pressure from the Unions' Reeves were advised by the Engineering & Allied Employers' West of England Association to raise wages, which they did as from 1941(12 Dec).

CORRESPONDENCE FILE [Original and copy] between The Agricultural Engineers' Association and R. & J. Reeves & Son Ltd.  TR REE/AD2/2  1941(19 Dec) - 1942(19 Mar)

Contents:
Concerning sales prices of Reeves' goods controlled through the A.E.A. and the need of government approval for further increases. An A.E.A. circular of 1941(9 Dec) asked Reeves for a recommended percentage increase in their sales prices, with regard to wages and raw materials, to be put to its Prices Committee and also details of any variation in establishment charges due to increased turnover. Reeves' calculations for the return are on the back of the circular as well as in their reply. These show falling establishment charges, increased turnover and material costs but fairly static labour costs in terms of net sales prices. Reeves accordingly recommended a further 15% advance on sales prices, making a 40% increase on iron goods since 1939(Aug) and a 45% increase on wooden goods. An A.E.A. circular of 1942(11 Feb) informed Reeves of the Prices Committee's negotiations with the Ministry of Agriculture and Fisheries. The A.E.A. recommended 7½% increases on iron and steel goods, 10% on wooden goods and 15% on binders. The Ministry reply [included] requested particulars of labour and material cost rises and considered all round price rises not a 'seriously operative' factor in wartime. The A.E.A. suggested to its members providing such figures as at 1939(Sep), 1941(Jan) and 1942(Jan). There are details of the A.E.A. meeting with the Ministry, 1942(25 Feb) and a 1942(3 Mar) circular on how to complete the cost sheets. Reeves were required to submit three sheets, one for corn drills, one for horse ploughs and one for hay elevators. The elevator costing only is included in the file, 1942(12 Mar) together with a draft, the Ministry instructions for completion and the auditors' signed statement. The Ministry then wrote on 1942(19 Mar) requesting details of the indirect expenses figures on the No. 2 advance elevator costing. There are no further items on the file.

CORRESPONDENCE FILE [Original and copy] between H.J. Lloyd, Secretary, The Agricultural Engineers' Association and R. & J. Reeves & Son Ltd.  TR REE/AD2/15  1948(6 Oct) - 1949(4 Jan)

Contents:
Concerning sales prices for Reeves' goods, controlled through the A.E.A.

Circular letter from the A.E.A.  TR REE/AD2/15/i  1948(6 Oct)

Contents:
Concerning possibility of sales price increases due to increased engineers' wages and rises in iron and steel prices. The Ministry of Agriculture and Fisheries however sees this need offset by removing government restrictions on production.

Copy letter to A.E.A. from Reeves  TR REE/AD2/15/ii  1948(14 Oct)

Contents:
Concerning Reeves' necessity to reduce trade terms from 10% to 5% on all price controlled implements and to apply for higher sales prices for root drills. Mentions problem of casting such small scale production.

Letter to Reeves from A.E.A.  TR REE/AD2/15/iii  1948(19 Oct)

Contents:
Concerned over Reeves taking 'precipitant action' over trade terms, as liable to 'easily prejudice your trading'. Thinks it preferable that the A.E.A. take up Reeves' case for price increases on controlled implements, but will require figures for labour and material cost rises since last price increases in 1948(Jan).

Copy letter to A.E.A. from Reeves  TR REE/AD2/15/iv  1948(23 Oct)

Four copies.

Contents:
'Long ago price control made it essential for us to sell most of our work direct to farmers'. Estimates 10% rise in labour costs already in 1948. 'To wait for the ponderous processes of the Association's price control machinery to obtain for the trade a general price adjustment is far too slow. Something must be done promptly.' Although reduction of trade terms will not please the A.E.A. and A.M.T.D.A., it should be popular with the Ministry and the N.F.U. Complains of the 'vast difference' between the working conditions of a small firm like Reeves and the large manufacturers on the A.E.A. Council. Points out that in 1939(Sep) manufacturers' trade prices were not always profitable selling prices (even if the Ministry assumed them to be) due to adverse trading conditions for smaller firms, and that the Ministry's supposition that increased demand for implements considerably reduced overheads did not apply to small rural firms with limited labour forces. 'We make things that the big firms will not bother about, and the Treasury do not guarantee us against loss, whereas they tax our profits.'

Letter to Reeves from A.E.A.  TR REE/AD2/15/v  1948(27 Oct)

Contents:
Are willing to take up Reeves' case individually and straightaway provided enough cost details can be provided. 'I am really anxious to take this matter further.'

Copy letter to A.E.A. from Reeves.  TR REE/AD2/15/vi  1948(6 Nov)

Two copies.

Contents:
First need is to raise prices for Type G drills and Advance elevators which were priced far too low in 1939(Sep) in comparison to other Reeves products. 'As usual our difficulty is to submit figures which a Treasury accountant would accept, because our costing methods are somewhat primitive... With a slide rule an engineer obtains figures sufficiently accurate for his purpose, but not necessarily acceptable to a banker.' Compares G drill prices with those of other manufacturers' equivalent models, noting that G drills are about 20% lower based on a costing of pence per lb. (The manufacturers are Russell, Edlington, Smyth & Gower.) Suggests an advance of 50% for G drills which if not approved will reduce Reeves to building G drills to Empire drill patterns to get the increased price.

Letter to Reeves from A.E.A.  TR REE/AD2/15/vii  1948(10 Nov)

Contents:
'Anxious as I am to support your case, I am candidly frightened at the idea of asking the Ministry for a 50% increase! I am afraid that such an application would be treated with what amounts to derision and I think that I need to be fortified with some more figures of a general nature.' Wants copies of recent annual financial statements. 'The Ministry are adopting a very difficult attitude with regard to the turnover of capital.'

Copy letter to A.E.A. from Reeves.  TR REE/AD2/15/viii  1948(15 Nov)

Contents:
Assures A.E.A. that annual financial statements not of 'the slightest use' for determining a fair price for G drills. Drill 'production is being subsidised by general farm repairs which is a most unsatisfactory and possibly immoral state of affairs'. About 40 G drills are made per season, 'a drop in the ocean as far as the industry as a whole is concerned but of extreme importance to us'. Considers them high quality, customer built jobs for which Reeves have 'a very good name'. 'All we ask is that we should be allowed to charge an economic price.' Will send cost details in a few days time.

Letter to Reeves from A.E.A.  TR REE/AD2/15/ix  1948(26 Nov)

Contents:
Suggests Reeves revise their sales prices 'using your own judgement... and not pushing things too far'. Considers in the circumstances the A.E.A. are entitled to allow this.

Copy letter to A.E.A. from Reeves.  TR REE/AD2/15/x  1949(3 Jan)

Two copies

Contents:
Sends details of revised prices. Main concern is to make up 1947 deficit, requiring about £2,000 which cannot come wholly from manufacturing side so about £500 will have to come from spare parts business. Out of 40 agents and farmers with orders for G drills only 2 cancelled on being sent revised prices. Anticipates 1948 accounts will show need for further 10% rises, mainly due to wages increases. States that if the manufacturing business had been charged with a fair share of overheads wholesale manufacturing would never have been profitable, with an average loss of 5½% for 1934-1939, 12% for 1940-1946 and 13½% for 1947, as well as an estimated 17% loss for 1948. 'In pre-war days we were often obliged to find work for key men in slack times by manufacturing and profit was only of secondary importance but in these days we feel it is high time to rationalise this side of the business, or find other and more profitable work for the men'.

Letter to Reeves from A.E.A.  TR REE/AD2/15/xi  1949(4 Jan)

Contents:
Endorses price increases and considers non-cancellation of orders and future sales will justify the move. However, considers the elevator price rises 'a doubtful proposition' and wishes the rises had taken account of the estimated future 10% increase'. Mentions post 1918 business conditions when after a depression there was unrestricted competition among a number of smaller manufacturers, resulting in very low sales prices. 'The figures you give for the wholesale side of your business are startling. I had no idea that you were running a charitable institution.'

LETTER from H.J. Lloyd, Secretary, The Agricultural Engineers' Association to R. & J. Reeves & Son Ltd.  TR REE/AD2/16  1951(19 Nov)

Contents:
Concerning sales price rises for agricultural implements. Notes increases agreed by the A.E.A. in 1950(May) were 13½% on iron and steel goods, i.e. 93½% on pre-war prices, together with timber goods up to 99% on pre-war prices. Further increases of 7½% on existing prices were agreed 1950(Dec) and 10% more as a result of discussions in 1951(Nov). Appreciates Reeves' difficulties of ascertaining current costs at frequent intervals, but necessary for A.E.A. to have such figures. Suggests modifying store records to average bought-in cost of materials consumed at a minimum of monthly intervals.

CORRESPONDENCE FILE [Original and copy] between R. & J. Reeves & Son Ltd., and R.E. Glanville & Sons, Bovey Tracey, Devon, implement agents and manufacturers  TR REE/AD7/1  1937(13 Mar-5 Aug)

Contents:
Concerning supply of goods by Reeves to Glanville. Reeves held Glanville's patterns, core boxes and chills for brushes and bulldozer blocks for hay stacker ironwork. Reeves were delayed in completing Glanville's orders due to shortage of steel supplies. Reeves letter of 1937(28 Jun) states 'It seems probable that with the dollar exchange back to about par you will again be buying mostly genuine American parts [Glanvilles were wholesale agents for John Deere and Syracuse implements]... it is obviously hard to compete with prices of mass produced parts even with freight insurance and duty to help matters'. Glanvilles replied 1937(2 Jul) 'as long as we can get satisfactory treatment and prices round about the same as those covering the American article, we have no intention of buying from America anymore than we can help'.

Reeves, unlike larger firms, did not use a system of drawing registration, involving series of drawing numbers with corresponding registers, nor did they use standard sizes of drawing paper. Those Reeves' drawings in the Institute's custody, in the absence of any system of organisation by the firm itself, have therefore been arranged according to products, types of work and premises. Due to the irregularity of the drawing sizes the individual drawing dimensions are given in the catalogue entries. Physical types are indicated by the following abbreviations:

CORRESPONDENCE FILE [Original and copy] between R. Fisher Crouch, Horwood Farm, Ansty, Salisbury and Manor Farm, Teffont Magna and R. &. J. Reeves & Son Ltd.  TR REE/ET1/2  1942 (16 Oct - 7 Dec)

Contents:
Concerning Crouch's inquiry over Reeves possible manufacture of a root drill with 3½" rows, for sowing grass and clover seed rather than using the 'usual method of broadcasting'. He considered there to be a market both for farmers and county seed production committees. Reeves originally replied that they had two years orders in hand for drills which prevented manufacture of such a new drill in any quantity and recommended a modified version of Denings of Chard's close-spaced flax seed drill. Crouch replied the Denings' design was unsuitable and Reeves eventually agreed to design the drill, after reference to specifications and correspondence with The Grassland Improvement Station, Dodwell, Stratford-on-Avon and The Agricultural Engineers' Association [included in the file]. Crouch also provided further technical information, including grass and clover seeds mixtures.

Letter to T.H. Gotch, R. & J. Reeves & Son Ltd., from John W. Maskell, Hertford.  TR REE/ET1/5/v  1936 (6 Sep)

Contents:
Concerning recent work on Capt. Griffiths' heavy land farm with a 'rotavator'. Maskell suggests Reeves make 3 of the implements [motor ploughs] at Bratton and he will visit them to 'start you off'. Discusses steering alterations to 12 h.p. model. Maskell is now on way to a machinery demonstration at Cirencester. 'I wish Reeves had something famous, as for instance Martin's 9 tine cultivator.'

Letter to T.H. Gotch, R. & J. Reeves & Son Ltd., from John W. Maskell, Ringwood, Hampshire.  TR REE/ET1/5/vi  1937 (11 Apr)

Contents:
Maskell is working at The Dorset Iron Foundry, Poole. Major Howard is trying to get Ransomes interested in the motor plough but 'I can't see it going yet'. Maskell is now turning gun turrets rings on a lathe and thinks he is too old to become a firms' traveller. Complains of his long hours and work conditions including 'overtime slavery'. 'Everything in life has a snag.' Considers himself too conscientious.

Letter to T.H. Gotch, R. & J. Reeves & Son Ltd., from John W. Maskell, Poole, Dorset.  TR REE/ET1/5/vii  1937 (20 May)

Contents:
Complains of work again. 'When the contract is finished, so shall I.' Wants to know if Reeves know of any posts for travellers. Discusses advantages of his motor plough for hoeing sugar beet and notes his plough's superiority to one he recently saw at Winchester. Needs to find an interested partner to help him with capital and maybe then he might get orders for the plough. Suggests need to alter hoe frame and advertise the implement in the 'Implement and Machinery Review' as hoeing or even ploughing, rather than as before cultivating. Thinks there may be good jobs in grass drying, especially as he used to be a hay merchant.
