Etesia UK have welcomed Border Chainsaw and Lawnmower Services to its dealer network.
Based in Earlston, Scotland, the dealership was founded in 1974 by the Cowe family. The business stayed within the family until January 2019 when it was acquired by Pearsons of Duns Ltd.
It was at this point that the experienced Allen Whellans was appointed as groundcare division manager in a bid to increase the company’s commercial offering.
“In a previous role, I worked with dealers and end-users who had a large fleet of Etesia pedestrian mowers. They always commented on how good they were.” he said. “It is that knowledge of knowing what the mowers are capable of doing that confirmed that I wanted to work with Etesia.”
Allen continued, “Etesia is very much focused on working with dealers as opposed to online discounting. Customers want support and back-up; they want to be able to speak to someone and they want to demo the mowers.
"Border Chainsaw and Lawnmower Services and Etesia have the same ethos - we want to work together for the customer – and that is the sort of partnership we are looking for.”
With immediate effect, the range of Etesia pedestrian mowers will be available from the dealership throughout the Lothians and the Scottish Borders.
“The Borders are lush areas and there is always lots of thick wet grass," said Allen. "The fact that that operators can get out and cut in all conditions, even in the rain, is going to be fantastic for our customers.
“These Etesia mowers just go that extra mile and therefore I am confident that they are going to significantly grow our attraction to commercial customers.”
