Etesia UK have been working hard over the last few months in promoting both the Etesia & Pellenc product range and have seen a significant increase in brand awareness that has been highlighted by the rising number of new dealer appointments.
To strengthen their customer service across the North West regions, Turner Groundscare of Cheshire and Balmers Garden Machinery of Lancashire have both been added to the list.
Appointed to look after Lancashire and parts of West Yorkshire is Burnley-based Balmers Garden Machinery. Established in 1979, the business is owned and run by David Balmer and has built a good reputation in the commercial and domestic sector with a customer base of local councils, national contractors serving golf, football and cricket clubs coupled with domestic and smallholding customers. “We’ve been familiar with the Etesia products for many years”, commented David. “We were very impressed with the ride-on direct collection machines and this was a major reason behind us wanting to become an Etesia dealer”.
Responsibility for Cheshire, Greater Manchester, the Wirral and parts of north Wales has been given to the Chester branch of Turner Groundscare, a large supplier of machinery to the grounds maintenance industry and general public. Commenting on the appointment, Brian Spruce said: “We had an Etesia dealership at a previous site and when this area was made available, we jumped at the chance. We recognise that the Etesia products fill a void that we had in our commercial product range and with us being one of the larger dealers in the UK, it means that we have the ability to provide very high levels of service to our customers”.
Les Malin, UK General Manager of Etesia UK said: “We are actively looking to recruit new dealers for Etesia and Pellenc as well as our new product range the ET Mowers, a range of robotic mowers. The appointment of both Turner Groundscare and Balmers Garden Machinery mean that we now have knowledgeable and experienced teams supporting the Etesia brand across the North West with great contacts and strong links to the markets they serve”
