Turfmech Machinery has reported strong and positive feedback from dealers' sales staff who attended one of a series of intensive Allett mower training courses held during the first three months of 2009.
Staged at Turfmech's headquarters in Hixon, Staffordshire - the manufacturing and support centre for Allett mowers - the one-day courses attracted more than 50 sales staff representing 15 different Allett dealers from across the United Kingdom and Ireland.
Each day was split into two sessions, the morning being devoted to the classroom where attendees were instructed in the adjustment, operation, maintenance and application of the 14-model range of Allett cylinder mowers and turf-care equipment.
The afternoon was spent outside on a variety of turf surfaces where theory could be put into practice, giving dealers' sales staff the opportunity to set-up and use the machines under actual working conditions.
During the day, attendees also visited Allett's parts and service departments and the manufacturing and assembly areas to see the various production stages through which a mower goes from raw steel to painting, testing and final preparation for despatch.
"The courses provided our dealers with their first formal training on Allett mowers since Turfmech acquired Allett's assets, trademarks and product range in 2007," commented Turfmech's managing director, Austin Jarrett. "The knowledge that they took away will enable them to provide customers and end-users with the best possible advice in helping them select the right Allett machine for their specific applications.
"Showing dealers' staff our manufacturing and after-sales support departments helped give them a better understanding of Turfmech's quality standards, technical support and the strong commitment that we have both to suppliers and to users of the Allett brand."
Turfmech will be delighted to arrange factory tours for existing/prospective Allett users or anyone interested in precision engineering processes and techniques. Simply phone 01889 271503 or email: firstname.lastname@example.org
