Ransomes Jacobsen revamps its dealer network in northern England

Ransomes Jacobsen has announced several changes to sales territories in the north of England and Wales to streamline and strengthen its UK dealer network.

Following a review of regional coverage, three existing dealers: F.R. Sharrock, Rickerby and Burdens Group will take on additional territories as part of their current dealer agreements. All three dealers are experienced with the full range of Ransomes Jacobsen products and are geographically well-placed to offer an excellent customer experience for sales and after-sales support, spare parts and service.

F.R. Sharrock, which has depots near Manchester and Stoke, has extended its current areas in the north west and Midlands to now include the areas of Lancashire, west Yorkshire, south Yorkshire and Derbyshire with additional responsibility for Harrogate and Doncaster.

Rickerby, which has depots at Carlisle and Hexham, has been awarded an extension to its territory to cover an area from Dumfries and Galloway down to the Lancaster district of Lancashire and North Yorkshire.

The Burdens Group, which has depots at North Kyme and Sutterton, will cover the east of England from Yorkshire in the north down to the A14 through Northamptonshire.

Commenting on the changes to the dealer network, international sales manager at Textron Specialized Vehicles, John Quinton, said: “I would like to thank our partners for their continued hard work and dedication to the Ransomes Jacobsen product range. Our dealers are very knowledgeable about the machinery, and have an excellent track record of first-class customer service and support. We are delighted with the way the dealer network is set-up, and look forward to supporting our dealers and customers moving forward.”

In addition to these changes, John Osman Groundcare will now focus on the Textron Golf family of products for north Wales, including Jacobsen turf-care equipment, E-Z-GO golf cars and Cushman utility vehicles. The Ransomes franchise for this area has been awarded to F.R. Sharrock.

GGM Groundcare and Platt Harris Groundcare have had their Ransomes Jacobsen dealer agreements terminated and will no longer represent products from the TSV portfolio.
