Green Stripe Garden Machinery is the latest in and concludes an extensive list of dealers to take on the distribution of TYM Tractors' product range in the UK in 2016.
The North Lincolnshire firm, which celebrates 20 years in the business in 2017, has opted to be an exclusive TYM dealer because the tractors not only "excel in comparison to the alternatives" says managing director Gavin Bird, but also because of the strong relationship with Reesink Turfcare and in particular TYM sales manager Steven Haynes and product manager Scott Turner.
"We had a very good demo with the TYM Tractors, finding them to deliver in all areas. We're in a rural setting where there aren't many chimney pots and our customers are predominantly top-end domestic users with a lot of land to tend. The demo proved that the compact range of TYM Tractors will suit their requirements perfectly. It was also clear TYM would suit across the board for the rest of our customers' requirements in the landscape community and contractors, caravan parks and some small-agriculture holdings, too.
"Cementing the decision is the fact that it is important as a small, but successful family-run company to work with the best in the business and for us that meant working with Steven and Scott at Reesink."
This agreement concludes a successful year for Green Stripe with one highlight being nominated by its manufacturers and reaching the final eight in the nationwide Service Dealer Awards. Gavin says: "We were delighted the manufacturers we work with think so positively about us as a business; it was a real achievement to reach the top eight in the country. We focus on quality products and good customer service and we're glad to see this translating."
Also joining the TYM dealer network in 2016 are Oakley Garden Machinery in Somerset, Curtis and Shaw in East Sussex, Riverlea Tractors in Pembrokeshire and Revill Mowers in Gloucestershire, further strengthening the geographical availability of the TYM product and the support network behind it.
Commenting on this significant growth Steven Haynes, TYM sales manager at Reesink Turfcare, says: "TYM is a brand that has been in the UK for a number of years now and under Reesink's distributorship is cementing itself as a key player in the compact tractor market. One of my primary goals since joining Reesink in July was to establish a more extensive dealer network and we're off to a fantastic start. We've broadened the dealer base, to include those with access to the hobby farmer and small-holder, the equestrian customers and also large private houses and estates. The TYM product range has models that are perfectly suited to meet and exceed the expectations of all of these customers."
