IPU have announced its proposal to sell its Groundcare business to T H WHITE Group.
The sale allows IPU to focus on the energy and engine markets, whilst expanding T H WHITE’s diverse business group with a new import and distribution arm.
The Ferris and Wright operation will be run as a separate division within T H WHITE to preserve the independence of its relationships with existing dealers. The website address is www.ferrisandwrightmowers.co.uk.
It is proposed that as of 1st February 2016 T H WHITE will become the sole UK distributor for Ferris & Wright mowers and will begin distributing these two brands to an established network of professional groundcare dealers. This new service will be offered from T H WHITE’s recently purchased 3.6 acre Stockbridge site in Hampshire.
The plans are for IPU’s experienced groundcare staff to join T H WHITE on 1st February. IPU’s stock of equipment and spares will move with them and any outstanding orders and activities will be transferred. This will mean business as usual for sales of Ferris and Wright mowers. Therefore, after the 1st February all correspondence will be addressed from T H WHITE’s Stockbridge branch.
Existing contacts remain unchanged.
