Barenbrug continues growth with another new distributor

Barenbrug's plan to further expand its business in Scotland and the north of England has been given an additional boost with the appointment of another new distributor, Turfcare Specialists Ltd (TSL), based in Consett, Co. Durham. The company will be distributing Barenbrug's BAR range of grass seed to the amenity market in the north of England.

TSL has been trading for over 20 years and employs 10 staff. It sells a wide range of amenity products - such as grass seed, chemicals and fertilisers - to the golf, sport and landscaping market. In addition, TSL has a contracting side, which specialises in the renovation of all types of sports turf. This expertise has earned the company approval by the English Cricket Board as a pitch improvement contractor.

Terry Charlton, managing director of TSL, said: "We are delighted to be working with Barenbrug because they have been a high profile seed supplier for many years and their quality is well known. We are very impressed with their strong sales and marketing approach and their move to invest in Scotland and the north with a new blending, packing and distribution centre in Falkirk.

"I have known their Scotland operations manager Billy Nimmo for many years and it's good to be working with him again. We are confident that this new partnership will bring real success for both companies."

Commenting on the appointment, Barenbrug UK managing director Paul Johnson said: "TSL is a highly successful, well-established company, and we are confident that they will achieve strong sales of our BAR range in the northern amenity market. We are committed to improving local service and working with TSL is part of Barenbrug's on-going development."
