FSI have a reputation for extensive know-how, expertise, and a wide range of high-quality products, aimed at professional users who value quality and exceptional service.

Landscapers, tree surgeons, hire companies, local authorities, and other companies in the green sector choose FSI for their stump cutter needs.

This follows last year’s announcement that Phil Edmondson had joined to head the expansion of the companies Kubota portfolio into higher horsepower M-series tractors and RO loaders, alongside its successful Groundscare business.

Phil’s role will now be expanded, driving both the Ag and Arb offering of the business forward through a new the GGM Ag and Arb Department. Phil has been in the Arb industry for 30 years and has worked with FSI products for the past 11 years so when the dealership opportunity arose he saw this as exploiting his substantial experience in the Arb sector.

Farming has always been a large part of Phil’s life and his son now runs the family farm. His extensive knowledge of both Agriculture and Arboriculture gives an excellent base to build relationships in both market sectors.

He said:

“Following my recent move to the GGM Group Ltd to head up their Agricultural tractor sales I have been contacted by several Arb Machinery Manufacturers with a view to the GGM Group becoming a dealer for their product ranges.

“Having reviewed these offers internally and met with some suppliers we have decided to add Arb related machinery products to our existing range and to offer these through the GGM Ag and Arb Department.”

The FSI range will sit along side the businesses existing range of shredders from Eliet and TS, Chippers from TP and chainsaws from Husqvarna and Echo.

Phil continued:

“Both our Colne and Haydock workshops have highly skilled in-house and mobile Service Technicians with vast experience in all kinds of grounds maintenance and agricultural machinery who along with our dedicated well stocked and knowledgeable parts team offers customers the high level of aftersales service you expect.”

“Aftersales is key to continued customer relationships, GGM’s proven record within the Grounds Maintenance sector gives added confidence to the new ranges we will be offering within Ag and Arb, along with FSI excellent aftersales support with a real personal touch.”

To support the businesses continued development within Arb, the group has enlisted the expertise of Adi Taylor who joins the service department team and is well known within the industry.

Based in Colne, Lancashire, with a second depot at Haydock, Merseyside, GGM are accessible to customers throughout the North West and areas of North / West Yorkshire.

Accomplished in meeting the needs of horticultural, local authority, estate management, golf and sports turf sectors, this family-owned and run dealership employs a team of over 40 staff, headed-up by managing director Chris Gibson.
