Global Turf Equipment (GTE) – the world’s largest independent seller and exporter of pre-owned golf course equipment – has named Golf Ventures International (GVI) its Caribbean sales agent.
GVI possesses an exceptional network of golf, turf and commercial contacts across the region. Led by international sales manager Scott Jones and his 35 years’ experience, it will help GTE market and sell its pre-owned, “like new” fleet of turf-care equipment from brand leaders like Toro, John Deere, Jacobson and Club Car.
“The Caribbean market is one that continues to show fantastic short- and long-term potential,” says Jones, a member of the Caribbean Hotel Association. “The GTE and GVI agreement makes sense on a host of levels, not the least of which is a shared emphasis on fostering service-oriented corporate cultures.”
“Until now, the Caribbean hasn’t been a major area of focus for our business,” says Jim Sartain, CEO of GTE. “Adding Scott and GVI to our global roster of contract sales agents gives us a strong presence in an untapped region right at the doorstep of our Florida headquarters.”
Based outside Tampa, GTE showcases 400-600 “like new” machines across several warehouses totaling more than 35,000 sq. ft. Offering savings of up to 50 percent on products, its inventory includes fairway green and rough mowers; top dressers and spreaders; trim mowers; turf aerators, sprayers, vacuums and blowers; utility vehicles and more.
Servicing golf facilities in more than 80 countries, GTE is proud to carry high quality, low hour, off-lease equipment.
