Three category wins and distributor of the year award for TH White Ltd.
By Peter Driver
TH White Ltd, of Tetbury in Gloucestershire is the Ransomes Jacobsen Distributor of the Year for 2005. Not only did they win this most prestigious award, they were also winners in three other categories; Parts dealer of the year; Service dealer of the year and UK Turf dealer of the year.
The awards were presented at a Gala Dinner during the recent BTME conference and exhibition in Harrogate, which was attended by Ransomes Jacobsen dealers from around the world. The silver trophy and commemorative plaque was presented to the managing director of TH White's grounds care division, John Earley.
Speaking at the Gala Dinner David Withers commented, "From the number of awards won by TH White, it's obvious that they have had an exceptional year with Ransomes Jacobsen product offering. The Distributor of the Year award recognises outstanding performance in all sectors of the business and they have demonstrated outstanding performance across all their markets.
TH White has met, and surpassed, the standard that we demand of our distributors and have shown tremendous commitment to Ransomes Jacobsen. Most importantly, they are a customer focused organisation and they thoroughly deserve the title of Ransomes Jacobsen Distributor of the Year."
Rickerby Ltd received a special award for 125 years outstanding service to the groundscare industry and ITTEC received a similar award for 10 years successful trading in the Czech Republic.
