The June 2 opening follows the company been awarded the Kubota, Kverneland, Simba Great Plains, Vicon and Grange Machinery franchises for Rutland and the surrounding area.
Already having these machinery franchises in Lincolnshire, this expansion will allow Irelands to help and support more customers in this area with a full sales, parts, hire and service facility.
Furthermore, Irelands has also been awarded the Kubota Groundcare and Industrial Lite range of products for the same area and we will also be selling the complete Baroness range which includes a range of mowers suitable for golf clubs and sports pitches.
For turf maintenance, the depot will be selling Wiedenmann equipment including aerators and seeders, Campey turf Care including the Air2G2, Vredo Disc Seeder, and the Dakota Top Dresser and the Spearhead range of mowers, thus creating a range of products which will help our customers in a wide range of circumstances.
