Two day extravaganza marks Imants 125th anniversary

More than 3,000 people turned out to mark the 125th birthday of Dutch groundcare machinery manufacturer Imants B.V, at a weekend of special events.

The event, including fireworks, live music and antique machinery displays, was hosted at the company’s head quarters in the village of Reusel which has been its base since its inception in 1885.

Owners Felix Peters and Hans de Kort and their 35 employees greeted visitors from all over the world including their Europe, Africa and Asia distributor Campey Turf Care Systems.

Owner Richard Campey paid tribute to the company’s achievements and its innovative owners.

"Imants’ longevity and success can be put down to a number of factors. Innovation and quality, the vital elements in any successful manufacturing business, remain their primary focus.

"A machine needs to do a job and do it well but instead of waiting for techniques to evolve before providing solutions to problems, their engineers have continually developed each piece of machinery to ensure that they continue to meet the demands of end users."

He added:  "Felix and Hans have forged a superb partnership which has introduced the Imants name and products to the worldwide market place and we’re pleased to be working alongside them in the turf care sector. Our mutual desire to deliver innovative, well built, high work-rate machinery should enable us to build upon our success in the years to come."
