CHIPPER manufacturer GreenMech has announced a rationalisation of their dealer network in the south and south-east, which will see an expansion in coverage area for existing dealer GA Groundcare, with effect from 1st January 2021.

Operating from its purpose-built depot in Poulshot, Wiltshire, GA Groundcare will become exclusive to the GreenMech franchise, offering supply and support across the full pedestrian, road-tow and tracked chipper portfolio – together with stocking a comprehensive range of GreenMech replacement parts. Having originally been appointed in 2017 for the counties of Berkshire, Gloucestershire and Wiltshire, the success of the partnership sees their territory extended to cover Dorset, Somerset, Hampshire, Kent, Surrey and Sussex. 

Commenting on the expanded area, Ashley Stevens, GA Groundcare director, said: “With over nine years of experience working with the GreenMech product line, I am delighted to be offered the opportunity to develop this further across a broader territory. We will be increasing our sales and aftermarket resources to ensure we can deliver advice and support to customers, both existing and new.”

GreenMech sales director Martin Lucas added: “Having seen how well GA Groundcare Ltd have performed with our range, we are confident that they will make a success of raising the level of both sales and aftermarket support in this key territory.”

All existing warranties relating to GreenMech chippers, sold by Hunt Forest Group and Burden Bros Agri, will continue to be supported by GA Groundcare.
