Gary Mumby, managing director of BLEC, reports a successful visit to the GIS show in Orlando to launch their new Multivator (decompactor and recycler).
"It was great to be back in the US meeting the customers we have dealt with over the years, showing our commitment to our export markets, " said Gary. "At the GIS golf show in particular we met many customers from Europe and Asia."
BLEC returned to the US last month after restructuring in 2009 and moving from their previous distribution unit in South Carolina.
"We have set up a new operating centre in Florida supplying our existing British-manufactured landscaping and turfcare equipment and parts, " says Gary. "Machine and parts stock are on their way from the UK to Nigel Mills of Greenworld Equipment Inc. who is managing the new site."
Gary Mumby launched BLEC (now BLEC GLOBAL) in 1986 with wife Sue, and was previously a landscaper who realised he could design and manufacture specialist machines for the grounds care industry.
Their factory near Peterborough employs around 25 people and machinery is all British manufactured.
The new BLEC MULTIVATOR has a quick hook-up rear attachment system which turns the Multivator into a multi-use machine carrying out a wide range of tasks achieved with only one drive unit.
Decompacting, soil recycling and topdressing all in one pass, the Multivator has quick hook-on rear attachments, an easy change blade system and heavy duty reversible drive system.
Other options available offer a verticutter with elevator removal, stone burier, stone picker, soil screener and turf lifter with side elevator removal.
