Great Plains enjoyed two profitable days at LAMMA 2014, with the UK launches of two new machines; a range of new technical information and research results available and a full range of other machines to interest all stand visitors.
This year’s event was the first to be held at the East of England Showground, and the switch of venue – allied to good planning of the stand - paid dividends, says David Holmes, UK Sales Director:
“Our sales force report an encouraging level of enquiries to previous years, with an excellent quality.
“We had a prominent stand in a good location and benefited from the fact that we laid woodchip on the ground which kept machines, staff and visitors clean and dry while many other stands were a sea of mud.
“During the two days we made many ‘first time’ contacts, especially from people considering taking their first steps in non-inversion tillage systems.
“The fact that we offer a comprehensive range of cultivators, including machines like the X-Press, CultiPress and UniPress that can be used to work down ploughing and work in non-inversion tillage systems, is a real strength, as is the fact that we offer drills like the Centurion, which are equally at home in both systems.
“On the technical front, staff spent a lot of time discussing the key issues regarding soil structure with stand visitors, many of whom appreciate the value of the research projects into one-pass systems and soil restructuring with which we are involved”.
