Ransomes Jacobsen to hold September open day

Ransomes Jacobsen is holding an open day on 23 September at its European head office and manufacturing facility in Ipswich.

Contractors, groundsmen, groundscare professionals and representatives from local authorities, are invited to the event to get a behind the scenes insight into Ransomes Jacobsen operations.

Attendees will be given tours of the factory to see how modern lawn mowers are manufactured as well as being shown the full range of models from past to present – from the Budding lawnmower of 1832 to the new Ransomes Highway 3, light commercial triplex mower.

There will also be product demonstrations throughout the day and attendees will be able to visit a tented village housing industry professionals including Scotts, Syngenta, the Institute of Groundsmanship, the Sports Turf Research Institute (STRI) and many more.

Ransomes Jacobsen’s marketing manager Greg Spray said:  "We want this to be an informative and fun day for customers using our equipment and also for those who might be considering using it."

He added:  "We will be providing a BBQ lunch and there’s a ‘Nearest the Pin’ competition on the 1st hole of our gold course with a prize for the first hole-in-one on the course.

"An eclectic mix of bands will provide music throughout the day and there will be some fun stands that will test accuracy, hand-eye co-ordinations and dexterity."
