One year before its 125th anniversary, Dutch manufacturer Imants BV has taken over the manufacture, marketing and development of Koro-Systems.
“The decision to expand the Imants range of turfcare products with the take over of Koro-Systems followed intense discussions between all the parties involved,” explained Felix Peters, Managing Director of Imants BV. “The consensus was that working together as one company would create a stronger consolidated product base that would ensure the continuation and further market expansion of these highly respected machines.”
Felix added, “I am delighted that Ko Rodenburg will continue providing invaluable insight and participation in product development on a consultancy basis. The combined knowledge, skills and experience of both marketing and development teams will lead to the introduction of many innovative new products in the future.”
Both Koro-Systems and Imants are world renowned for products such as; Koro Fieldtopmaker, Topdrain, Recycling Dresser, Cultirol and the Imants Shockwave, RotoKnife, SandCat, RootPruner, RotoSweep and Sleepraam.
The amalgamation of these two companies will create a formidable position for Imants in the turf care and sports pitch renovation market. The Koro name will form part of the new product branding as ‘KORO by Imants’ and will continue to be marketed through Campey Turfcare Systems Ltd.
