October 02, 2013

Ipswich, Suffolk, UK - October 2, 2013 - Ernest Doe and Sons Ltd, the Ransomes Jacobsen's dealer for the southeast of England based at Ulting in Essex, were awarded the accolade of Dealer of the Year 2012 at a gala dinner held at Beaumont House hotel recently.

The award, which is presented to the premier dealer in Ransomes Jacobsen's UK and European distributor network, was presented to Managing Director Colin Doe by Rupert Price, Sales Director of the Ipswich-based turf equipment manufacturer.

Presenting the rationale prior to handing over the award, Rupert Price said, "Ernest Doe and Sons have demonstrated significant sales across all of our brands with a year-on-year growth of over 40%. They were also the key influencer in winning two major corporate golf accounts in 2012, and also have very dedicated teams at all their branches. From experienced sales team members down to some very new staff, collectively, they have shown what can be achieved with determination and enthusiasm. Their can-do attitude to ensure that customers have the correct machinery, the ultimate after-sales support and the most cost-effective finance packages in this difficult climate is further testimony to the award of this accolade."

Replying after accepting the award, Colin Doe said, "On behalf of the Ernest Doe business I would like to express my pleasure at winning this award. We have received excellent support from Ransomes Jacobsen in winning new business and the teams at all branches have worked tirelessly in these difficult times. I would like to personally thank our parts and service teams; they are the people who provide the high levels of after-sales service that helps to enhance our reputation in a competitive market place. We are delighted to be the recipients of this award."
