Open House at Ransomes Jacobsen

12.12am 17th September 2012 - Corporate

Representatives from the UK’s groundscare and fine turf maintenance industries are invited to an Open House event at Ransomes Jacobsen’s European head office and manufacturing facility in Ipswich on 10th and 11th October.

The aim of the Open House is similar to the 2010 event and will provide end users across the sector the opportunity to see the Ransomes Jacobsen operation at first hand. There will be factory tours at regular intervals to view the manufacturing process and a display of ancient and modern grass cutting machinery from the first Budding lawnmower of 1832 through to the latest Ransomes Meteor mini flail mower.

Gina Putnam, marketing manager at Ransomes Jacobsen commented, “We want this to be an informative and fun day for customers using our equipment and also for those who might be considering using it. As well as the guided Factory tours, we’ll also be holding product demonstrations and there’ll be the opportunity to meet and network with other industry professionals.

“The tented village will house our industry partners including IOG, BIGGA, STRI, GEO, Everiss, Syngenta, GreenTek, Bernhards, Myerscough College, Wiedenmann and Pitchcare, together with our own Parts, Customer Care, Retail and Cutting Edge Training stands. We will be providing a BBQ lunch and there’s a ‘Nearest the Pin’ competition on the 1st hole of our golf course with a prize for the first Hole-in-One on the course.”

All turf professionals are invited, so if you are interested in coming along please contact Lucy Davis, marketing co-ordinator on 01473 276287 or email: Alternatively you can register on-line at
