Ransomes Jacobsen Ltd, the Ipswich based turf equipment manufacturer, has strengthened its dealer network with the appointment of Bredy Agricentre Ltd as its main dealer for the county of Dorset.
Bredy Agricentre, established for over 20 years and based in Dorchester, has been marketing the Ransomes Jacobsen Lawn & Garden products and the Iseki tractor range, on a non-exclusive basis since March 2007.
PJ Flegg, part of the Medland Sanders and Twose group, who were previously responsible for the Dorset area, will now concentrate on a territory that includes Cornwall, Devon and Somerset.
Rupert Price, Ransomes Jacobsen's Sales Manager for UK and Ireland commented, "We are pleased to welcome the Bredy team as our main dealer for Dorset. They are an established business with a very good reputation for serving their rural community. They are a professional organisation with an excellent knowledge of their territory and business sectors and will play a significant part in our business growth expansion plan, going forward.
"PJ Flegg has done a sterling job for many years and we recognise the part they have played in establishing and promoting Ransomes Jacobsen in the south west. There were mutual concerns regarding the provision of an effective service to our Dorset customer base and this latest move will allow them to concentrate their energies in a more compact territory."
