Mowers manufactured here in Ipswich are being used at the world renowned Pebble Beach Resort in California, following a new national supply agreement with Ransomes Jacobsen's sister company in the USA.
Pebble Beach Resorts has extended its relationship with Jacobsen, reappointing the Charlotte-based turf equipment manufacturer as their official supplier to the golf course complex for the next five years.
David Withers, Managing Director of the Ipswich-based company said,
"Golf course mowers under the Jacobsen brand name are manufactured both here at Ipswich and in Charlotte in the USA. Our contribution to this extended agreement is the supply of our G-Plex III ride-on greens mower which we export, not only to the USA, but around the globe. We are naturally delighted to be part of this prestigious contract."
Pebble Beach Resorts are obviously pleased with the equipment supplied by the two companies as testified by the comments from R. J. Harper, Senior Vice President of Golf Properties for Pebble Beach Resorts.
"Jacobsen provides the finest equipment in the industry to take the very best care of the turf on each of our golf courses," he said. "We've enjoyed a decade-long relationship with Jacobsen as our official turf maintenance equipment supplier and, as a result of this agreement we will continue to have the best equipment available on the courses of golf's most prestigious tournaments."
