The Burdens Group appointed a Ransomes Jacobsen dealer

The Burdens Group Ltd has been appointed as a Ransomes Jacobsen dealer with a territory covering Lincolnshire and East Nottinghamshire.

The new franchise will be operated by Burdens Groundcare, a specialist turf maintenance division operating from premises in North Kyme, six miles north east of Sleaford in Lincolnshire.

The previous distributor, Lawnmower Services Lincoln (LMS) has relinquished the franchise after 60 years.

Burdens is a major agricultural and groundcare business, established in 1972 by the chairman, Norman Burden, to deal in used agricultural machinery. It has steadily grown offering a full range of both agricultural and groundcare machinery from its three sites in Lincolnshire: Sutterton, North Kyme and Wrangle.

John Southern, Managing Director of The Burdens Group Ltd said,

"The addition of the widely respected Ransomes Jacobsen franchise is an exciting development for our North Kyme groundcare division and now allows us to offer a full product portfolio to our wide range of discerning professional users."

Rupert Price, Sales Director at Ransomes Jacobsen said; "The Burdens Group is a well-established, highly professional and respected business in the area and we are delighted to have them on board. I am convinced that, with their obvious enthusiasm for our brands, they will make a significant contribution to enhancing our presence across Lincolnshire and East Notts.

Acknowledging the contribution of LMS he added, "It's always sad to lose a dealer, especially one such as LMS, who began purchasing spare parts from us, way back in 1954. I would like to go on record and thank Chris Overton and his team for their efforts."
