Campey Turf Care Systems has appointed Monmouth based, specialist ground care machinery dealer, GJR Machinery as the new dealer for South Wales, Mid Wales and Herefordshire
The company has been run by owner Geraint Richards since 2005 and offers exceptional levels of industry experience that is invaluable to customers. Before starting the business, Geraint was instrumental in the transformation of 400-acres of agricultural land into a 27-hole Championship Golf course at Cottrell Park, with USGA spec greens.
The grow-in knowledge was then combined with 11 years of hands-on machinery experience at the golf resort before Geraint began to grow his business.
Becoming a Campey dealer is an important step for GJR, by adding an extensive range of equipment to their collection, they cover all the options to meet professional groundmen’s maintenance requirements.
Geraint explains: “For us, Campey brings it all together. This opportunity fits perfectly with our company because the machines complete our portfolio, we can now offer everything that our customers need, which means they can use one company but not one brand name. Not to mention there are a lot of benefits for them being able to do that.
“Campey is a very efficient and effective company to work with. Our local area manager Jason Moody is excellent. If I have a question, Jason will find the answer and get back to me quickly, so the support from Campey has been great.
“The feedback we’ve had from demos already has been very good and very successful. We’ve made sales already within our first two months with machines like the UniRake and the Air2G2, which is very impressive. When I first saw the UniRake being demo-ed, my first impression was that this is just another machine with tines. That was up until I saw it working and how efficient and effective it was. For us, that machine has been the biggest success so far. It is such a simple machine to work but it’s simple and extremely effective.
“Effortless, straightforward but effective machinery is what I’ve seen from Campey throughout the years, it’s something that’s made me keep an eye on what they’ve been doing since I was working at Cottrell Park many years ago. When I was there, I was always looking for new ideas. I’m one of these people where if I can see there’s a way of doing something a little bit differently, I’ll challenge it and have a go.”
