Campey Turf Care Systems launches Campey Australia
Campey Turf Care Systems announced the launch of Campey Australia. The expansion will see an established Campey Turf Care presence in the country, which will collaborate with dealers to provide the leading machinery and customer service for which Campey is known.
The Australian arm of the brand will be overseen by Campey Product Specialist Rob Jenkins, who is based in Melbourne and has 20 years of turf experience across the world – from top stadiums and golf courses through consultancy and sales. During his time in the UK, Jenkins worked with Campey and gained what he sees as a ‘sales apprenticeship’ from Richard Campey, making him the perfect candidate to lead the expansion.
“I’m excited to be working with Campey again and get back to what I learned when I was in the UK,” said Jenkins. “I’ve used the Campey ideology throughout my career, and that is built on a range of sports turf renovation equipment designed to rejuvenate worn pitches quickly without reliance on manufactured chemicals.
“Over time, I’ve seen a lot of countries turn away from harmful synthetic products to sustainable approaches to rejuvenate the soil, and, in that area, Campey has it all, Jenkins added. “They have been providing these machines for over 30 years with proven results all over the globe, and we want to establish that in Australia.
“Another part of their philosophy is getting machines out for people to try and demo. We’ll be working with our dealers as part of that process because getting out to customers is what has made the Campey name renowned not just in the UK but across many parts of the world, and we want to replicate that here. Of course, a large part of that is the service they provide, and we are currently looking for dealers in all States who can collaborate with us to provide that.
As part of the expansion, a website, www.campeyturfcare.com.au, dedicated to Australia, is being launched in the Spring, with information on all Campey Australia dealers and available machinery. Enquiries can be made to firstname.lastname@example.org.
