Otley College signs supplier agreement deal with Ransomes Jacobsen

Otley College in Suffolk has recently signed a preferred supplier agreement contract with Ransomes Jacobsen.

The deal means that the grounds of the college for land-based professions will be supported with a selection of Ransomes Jacobsen equipment, including the grass sports field which was opened in 2008 and is used for archery, cricket, football, rugby and outdoor education.

In honour of the agreement, the sports field has been renamed the Ransomes Jacobsen Sports Field.

The college’s director of land-based studies Rob Storer said:  "This is an exciting partnership that will bring important benefits to the college.  Ransomes Jacobsen has a superb world-wide reputation and a history of supporting education both regionally and nationally and we are delighted to be working with them.

"The agreement will mean that our students will receive expert advice from some of the best land-based practitioners around and our improved sports fields will inevitably benefit the lives of the students and the local community."

Ransomes Jacobsen’s Tim Lansdell commented:  "Helping with pro-active, educational training is an important facet of the business and this agreement with Otley College allows us to make a significant contribution to a leading education provider in the region.

"It builds on an existing partnership with the college and we are looking forward to continuing our excellent relationship for many years to come."
