Otterbine distributor appointed

12.05am 4th September 2002 - Corporate

Lely UK, distributor for Toro Commercial and Irrigation products, has been appointed as the exclusive distributor for Otterbine water aeration systems, fountains and other associated products. The appointment is with immediate effect and covers the UK and Republic of Ireland.

Otterbine-Barebo, from Emmaus, Pennsylvania, USA, is the worldwide leader in lake and pond water quality management systems, with 300 distributors and 90 service centres around the globe.

Graeme Francis, Toro Irrigation Products’ sales manager at Lely UK said, “Otterbine products complement our irrigation business very well and there is also a strong cross-over in some cases with our Toro commercial products’ markets. Water is more and more being used in landscape design, and this brings with it a requirement for maintaining and managing water quality. We see a huge UK potential market.

“Golf courses, airports, hotels, commercial developments and business parks are all good examples of locations that are increasingly using water in their landscapes to beautify their settings.”

There are three core Otterbine product lines that sell in the UK marketplace – industrial aerators, aerating fountains and pure fountains.
