Platts Harris Ltd, the groundscare equipment dealer with depots in Tuxford and Darley Dale, has been appointed the Baroness UK distributor for a territory encompassing Leicestershire, Nottinghamshire, Lincolnshire, Derbyshire and south Yorkshire.
Part of the Lookers PLC group of companies, they provide complete product sales and support services with territory-specific sales teams and field engineers based at their Nottinghamshire and Derbyshire premises.
Groundscare Sales Manager Allan Gray commenting on the appointment said: “We are delighted to be working with the Baroness team. Their well-respected range of fine turf care products fits well within our existing product portfolio of groundscare machinery.
"Although only just appointed, we have already receiving significant interest in Baroness from golf and fine turf managers. Our sales and after-sales teams are extremely excited and looking forward to meeting up with new and established customers within our territory.”
Baroness UK Business Development Manager Jim Whitton added: “I have been in the industry long enough to see many changes in customers’ machinery requirements.
"Since the difficult times of the 2009 recession customers are focussed more than ever on machines that offer simple functional design, reliability, quality and low whole-life cost.
"Baroness machines are built specifically to meet these requirements. Long factory warranties demonstrate our confidence in the durability and reliability of the Baroness products and Baroness is already proving to be the smart choice for today’s demanding market.
"Working alongside strong and experienced dealer partners is key to providing an exceptional Baroness customer experience and we at Baroness are delighted to welcome the Platts Harris team into the family. I am very much looking forward to working closely with them to drive the Baroness revolution in their territory.”
