Geoffrey Davison who is an internationally recognized leading authority and pioneer of drainage for sports facilities. He has been responsible for evolving and developing techniques now in general use in many countries including Britain, Australia, New Zealand and the USA. An expert on drainage for all sportsturf surfaces, Geoffrey is also the author of ' Drain Chains for Sportsturf' and 'Sand for Sand Slits'.

John Reynolds has joined Blec as Sales and Marketing Manager after 6 years as UK Manger with Dutch company Imants BV. John who is a qualified Agronomist has also spent 3 years developing sand slitting drainage systems for sportsturf using the Rotary Decompactor to incorporate 60-150 tonnes of sand into football and rugby pitches for drainage as part of the end of season renovation progamme. Well known as a sportsturf photojournalist, John has had over 350 published articles and technical reports to his credit and is a regular features writer for Pitchcare Magazine and Greenkeeping Magazine.

Gary Mumby owner of the world famous Blec Landscaping Equipment Ltd has been at the forefront of designing and developing sand slitting machinery for the sportsturf industry for several years.

The latest 'Vibra-Sandmaster' manufactured by Blec has been a major success story with worldwide sales. With the introduction of the new and revolutionary PTO driven 'Sand Injector' for fine turf, Blec believe that they have a real winner on their hands, particularly for incorporating sand into golf greens to vastly improve drainage. The Sand Injector will be exhibited at Harrogate Week where Blec expect to attract keen interest from golf clubs.
