While most of the nation recovered from this weekend’s Coronation celebrations on Monday, PSD Groundscare were also celebrating a very special event – a visit from world-class Japanese manufacturer Canycom to their premises in Lancashire.
Canycom President Mr Kaneyuki and Director of International Sales Mr Mori were met by PSD Managing Director Chris Gibson, Director Hilary Gibson, Sales Director Stuart Mercer and many of the team, in their first visit to the UK since launching a partnership with PSD last October.
After an official UK launch at Saltex, the extensive range of ride on brushcutters has been promoted at dealer events across the UK and to customers with national advertising, with the range showcasing again at this year’s event. Since the initial launch both companies have been focused on working closely together to ensure they have machines and after-sales back-up to support the UK dealer network and are both pleased with the progress made so far.
Despite it being a public holiday in the UK, when approached by Canycom about the trip, Managing Director Chris Gibson took the necessary steps to make it happen, saying,
“It was an absolute privilege to welcome both Mr Kaneyuki and Mr Mori to our offices. When we visited them in Japan last October their whole team made us feel incredibly welcome and we were delighted to be able to provide them with the same courtesy.
The visit was a real success as it allowed us the opportunity to update CANYCOM on the UK business and our further plans for a long-term partnership. We were also delighted to receive confirmation of an additional shipment of machines for the 2023 season that will allow us to both support the existing dealers and continue to grow our dealer network”.
Canycom President Mr Kaneyuki commented,
“We would like to thank Chris and his team for making our trip possible and such a warm welcome. We made our visit to gain a better understanding of the UK market and we return to Japan confident that with PSD we can work together as one team to ensure a successful long-term partnership. We are two nations but we believe we can be a good family”.
PSD has a long-standing track record of expertise in brush cutting solutions and the Canycom range of ride-on brushcutters are perfectly set up for working in UK conditions and both companies are looking forward to what the future holds.
