Genesis Garden Furniture team visits Ransomes Jacobsen

Members of Genesis Garden Furniture, part of the Genesis Orwell Mencap charitable organisation, have visited Ransomes Jacobsen to celebrate their contribution to the company's three-hole golf course.

The charity, which makes high-quality garden furniture in Ipswich, was commissioned to make some bespoke tables and benches for Ransomes Jacobsen.

They toured the factory before receiving a personal thank-you from Ransomes Jacobsen managing director David Withers.

Genesis was invited to make the furniture after producing some wooden safety tools for Ransomes Jacobsen a few years ago.

After touring the factory to see how modern commercial mowing equipment is manufactured, the 12-strong team enjoyed a buffet lunch with members of Ransomes Jacobsen's management team, sitting at the tables they had manufactured 18 months earlier.

Genesis Garden Furniture is a registered charity providing learning and training opportunities for people with learning disabilities.

From a fully equipped workshop it produces quality garden furniture. All furniture is made from fully certified and sustainable sources.
