Two British sportsturf industry companies agreed a machinery deal at the San Diego Golf Industry Show.

Gary Mumby, managing director of BLEC Global, and Adrian Abbott, director of MJ Abbott Ltd, shook hands on a deal involving a new fleet of landscaping preparation equipment.

“We have been dealing with the Abbotts for more than 20 years,” says Gary, “and it’s amazing that we meet in America to agree machinery sales.

“Abbotts are long-standing customers and we are delighted to continue our successful business relationship into 2013.”

Among the machines included in the deal are the heavy-duty Blecavator and the Cultipack Seeder stand-on model.

“We went to San Diego to meet customers from around the world,” says Gary, “but we didn’t expect to receive an order from a company on our doorstep.”
