Successful SALTEX for Price Turfcare

Successful SALTEX for Price Turfcare: “SALTEX just gets better and better for us”, says Rupert Price, Managing Director of Ventrac’s UK distributor Price Turfcare.

“For the past two years we’ve been coming to the event with the intention of raising the profile of the Ventrac brand, but this year there was a significant change. Visitors now know of us through our marketing initiatives including the social media platforms of Twitter, Facebook, YouTube and Instagram, together with the editorial coverage we have received in the trade media.

“We’re still working exceptionally hard demonstrating the versatility of the equipment and the recent Turf Maintenance Live (TML) event, just a week before SALTEX, was another opportunity to get the product in front of prospects.

“Many of the visitors to our stand were saying that they had seen us on social media and in the trade publications. Now they are wanting to see the equipment that is creating the buzz. At the close of the show, when we analysed the number of demonstration requests we had received, I was quite dumbfounded. With these added to those from TML, we are going to be extremely busy between now and the spring of 2020.

“All in all, a great show for us.”

Price Turfcare Increase SALTEX Presence

Price Turfcare Increase SALTEX Presence: Price Turfcare, the UK and Ireland distributor of the Ventrac multi-implement compact tractor and Ryan turf maintenance equipment, is returning to SALTEX with a larger stand and more products on display.

Founded by Ransomes Jacobsen’s former sales director, Rupert Price, in January 2017, the company has come a long way in less than three years.

“We’ve had a fantastic journey in a short space of time”, he said. “It’s been very hectic with demonstrations, roadshows and exhibitions to get the products in front of people and it has certainly produced excellent sales for the business. We have increased sales, year-on-year, with most Ventrac’s being sold with multiple attachments.

“One significant sale this year was to a well-known utility company in the north of England, who purchased five Ventrac mowers with Finishing decks and then, within a month, returned to purchase a sixth machine – this time with a Tough Cut deck. Private estates are another key business area for us and we have made significant sales involving multiple implement purchases. Customers really appreciate the versatility of Ventrac.”

BTME Success For Price Turfcare

BTME Success For Price Turfcare: Price Turfcare, the UK and Ireland distributor of the Ventrac multi-implement compact tractor and Ryan turf maintenance equipment, certainly selected a prime position at the revamped BTME.

Despite a few grumblings from some exhibitors about their location and subsequent footfall, the company’s Managing Director, Rupert Price was particularly upbeat,

BTME Success For Price Turfcare

“We deliberately chose a location in one of the walkways that linked the Purple and Green zones and it worked exceptionally well for us. Many people asked if we were late booking our space, as it was a slightly unusual position, but this was a deliberate decision that paid off brilliantly.

“This is the third time that we have attended the show and there’s definitely a different vibe from the first two occasions. Nobody really knew of us back then, but now they come onto the stand and say that they’ve seen us on social media or in the press and they want to see the equipment in the flesh, so to speak.

“Needless to say, with the amount of footfall across the stand, we’ve had some great enquiries and there’s a lot of work to do over the coming months, when we’ll be following up the leads and booking demonstrations.

“Personally, I don’t think the decision to change the layout of the event was an issue; Jim Croxton and his team did a very good job of trying to ensure that every location was well signposted, but you can’t expect to get it absolutely correct at the first attempt. I’m sure there’ll be a few tweaks next years; it was still BTME, but slightly different.”

Price Turfcare At BTME

Price Turfcare At BTME: Price Turfcare will be returning to BTME for the third time in January, back to Harrogate where the company was officially launched back in 2017.

Commenting on the first two years in business, Managing Director Rupert Price said,

Price Turfcare At BTME

“A totally unbelievable couple of years since we launched the business back in 2017,” he said. “I have no idea where the time has gone. It’s been a whirlwind of demonstrations, roadshows and exhibitions to get the Ventrac and Ryan brands out in front of the UK turf industry. It’s been very hard work, probably harder than I envisaged, but it’s definitely paying off. Ventrac was virtually invisible in the UK before 2017, now we have established it as a credible brand.

“So much so, that some of our early customers such as Peter Pattenden at Carden Park and Chris Brook at The Club Company have come back to order more machines and additional accessories. We have proved that the Ventrac is an extremely versatile machine, with many applications for golf course management.

As well as golf customers, machines are going into major sports facilities, to large landscape contractors, rental companies and to some private buyers with large estates. The addition of the Ryan franchise in 2018 has also given us a boost and the result is that we have an eclectic mix of turf maintenance machinery to suit any organisation, small or large.

Come and visit us on stand 450 in the Purple Area and see why we are making an impact.

Price Turfcare Return To SALTEX

Price Turfcare Return To SALTEX: Price Turfcare, the UK and Ireland distributor of the Ventrac multi-implement compact tractor and Ryan turf maintenance equipment, is returning to SALTEX on stand B124 on 31st October and 1st November 2018. With the business set to celebrate its second anniversary in January 2019, it’s been an exciting time for Managing Director Rupert Price.

“What is particularly pleasing is that some of our early Ventrac customers are coming back to add further attachments or in some cases, buying another machine. For instance, Darren Baldwin, at Tottenham Hotspur Football Club has added a couple of Power Brooms for maintaining the pathways, parking areas and synthetic pitches at their training centre, while Peter Pattenden at Carden Park has purchased a second machine, because he has been so impressed with the versatility of his first machine. Chris Brook of The Club Company purchased two machines; one each for courses in the group that needed a machine with a light footprint in wet conditions. Angus Lindsay of idverde purchased a machine for a new contract with Northampton Borough Council, which requires considerable bank mowing and we’ve been successful with several local authorities in the north of England.”

Price Turfcare Return To SALTEX

“We have come a long way in a short space of time,” he said. “It’s been a roller coaster ride establishing a network of dealers and doing demonstration tours across the UK, but it has worked. We realise that prospective purchasers of the Ventrac have to see the machine in action and we have travelled the length and breadth of the UK and Ireland establishing the brands credentials. Also, the addition of the Ryan franchise last year has broadened our product portfolio, enabling us to offer customers a comprehensive range of turfcare equipment.

To understand why these respected businesses have been impressed by the Ventrac product and to see the latest equipment from Ryan come along and visit stand B124.
