April 2011 saw Gloucestershire based trolley manufacturer Stewart Golf record its best ever monthly sales and production figures, more than doubling its previous record month.
April’s record output was mostly made up of the new X7 Lithium (£999) powered trolley as well as impressive sales of the new Z1 Push Trolley (£179). Exports of the new X7 Lithium and accessories accounted for almost 50% of output, proving that the British Stewart Golf brand has strong international appeal.
The X7 Lithium was announced in March, succeeding the popular X5 Remote. The X7 includes a state-of-the-art lithium battery pack as standard, and retails for £999 (a reduction on the X5 Remote which sold for £1149). The X7’s power system has also been refined to allow it to operate up to 25% more efficiently on the golf course.
Stewart Golf MD Mark Stewart said: “To have smashed our previous record so comprehensively is a fantastic achievement. Including the lithium battery as standard in the X7 has proved to be a sound decision as the reaction has been tremendous. Our extended range of products has also sold very well, especially the new Z1 Push as well as our new golf bags.
“We are a small team at Stewart Golf and everyone has worked hard to ensure that all orders were despatched on time, despite volumes increasing so dramatically. Our production team deserves special praise for their effort and commitment.”
