Warwickshire company, Parks and Grounds Machinery, has been named Turfmech's dealer of the year for 2006.
The award, which is now in its ninth year, was presented in recognition of the outstanding sales results achieved by the firm during 2006 and the consistently high level of service provided to owners and users of Turfmech equipment. An engraved plaque marking these achievements was presented to Parks and Grounds Machinery's management and sales staff at a special ceremony arranged by Turfmech at the company's premises in Waterloo Industrial Estate, Bidford on Avon.
Presenting the award, Turfmech's area sales manager, Jon Proffitt, said that Parks and Grounds Machinery had achieved consistently good results since being appointed a Turfmech dealer in 2001. However, 2006 had proved an exceptional year for the business, culminating in the firm securing Turfmech's coveted Dealer of the Year award.
"Parks and Grounds Machinery has established a high awareness of Turfmech products among local authorities, grounds care contractors, golf clubs, hire firms and private customers throughout Warwickshire and parts of neighbouring counties," commented Mr Proffitt. "During 2006, the company secured major new business for the ProPass 180 low impact top dresser, the Pro-Flex 120 articulating rotary mower as well as our vacuum collectors and debris blowers. These sales were accompanied by the provision of first-class parts and service support for all Turfmech owners and users."
Founded in 1989 by co-directors Andy Perkins and David Tullett, Parks and Grounds Machinery has established itself as a leading supplier of quality grounds maintenance machinery for home, estate and professional users. In addition to holding the Turfmech franchise, the firm is an appointed John Deere groundscare dealer.
David Tullett pointed out the relationship between Parks and Grounds Machinery and Turfmech is based on far more than the supply of quality turf machinery. "Turfmech delivers an all-round dealer and customer support package that is among the very best in the business," he said. "From demonstrations, machinery installations and user training to prompt parts deliveries and assistance with technical queries, we know that we can rely 100 per cent on Turfmech and its staff. It's a real pleasure doing business with them."
