Lloyds acquires Hunters

7.02am 17th June 2009 - Corporate

Lloyds & Co. Letchworth Ltd, suppliers of an extensive range of professional cylinder mowers and turfcare equipment, is pleased to announce it has acquired the assets, the name and rights to manufacturer, Hunter Grinders Ltd.

Hunters will continue to operate as a division of Lloyds with all manufacturing sales, service and backup for the full range of grinding equipment carrying on uninterrupted.

Lloyds managing director, Clive Nottingham, commented, “Like Hunter Grinders Ltd we have been supplying equipment to golf and sports clubs, stadiums and parks departments for many years. Coupled with our knowledge and understanding of relief grinding from using a Hunter precision grinder for many years on our own mowers, we consider it a natural synergy for the two companies.”

Clive continued, “Lloyds already deal direct with turf professionals looking after the whole range of sports surfaces, including those used for golf, rugby, soccer, cricket, tennis and bowls. Grinding is not only an essential part it is arguably the most important part of the turf maintenance programme. Customers of Hunter Grinder’s equipment will now benefit from the additional support of Lloyds & Co.

"I will consider it a privilege to be in a position to invest in and further develop these highly respected machines that have already achieved a formidable reputation over the years for quality, accuracy and unrivalled performance.”
