With gloomy news headlines predicting a recession, Etesia is bucking economic trends through supporting its UK dealers at Open Days and gaining orders for their anti-clog ride-on and pedestrian rotaries and Attila brushcutters.
Commenting, UK Sales and General Manager, Les Malin says "In spite of the credit crunch and fears for the future economy, there is evidence that commercial end users and up-market consumers are still prepared to spend money. This season saw a long wet summer interspersed with warm spells, which in most areas encouraged the grass to grow long and thick. Whilst the grass is growing there is obviously a need to cut it! Feedback tells us that those in the market for new machines are either distress purchases, or from users who are fed up with unclogging the chutes on their existing mowers and want a machine that cuts and collects efficiently."
Open days held in September and supported by Etesia personnel included R T Machinery Ltd of Nether Winchenden, Buckinghamshire; Suffolk-based Tomlinson Groundcare and the Carlisle depot of Lloyd Ltd. These events present the ideal opportunity for prospects to discuss their requirements and try Etesia machines for themselves. The company also offers free site assessments and demonstrations.
