Ben Burgess GroundsCare Equipment has announced it will be taking on the Avant compact loader franchise for Norfolk, Suffolk & Cambridge as of this spring.


Avant Tecno’s UK headquarters, based near Thetford in Norfolk, has sold in excess of 5000 compact loaders to a broad spectrum of end users since its opening 20 years ago. Being located between the Newmarket and Norwich depots of Ben Burgess, it makes for a close and convenient relationship.


Ben B Turner, Group GroundsCare Manager for Ben Burgess, commented, ‘It’s great to work with a brand with such a strong and versatile product offering with products equally at home in the landscaping, arboriculture, construction and equine markets. It fits in well with our current product offering and, with businesses moving away from manual handling, we see excellent growth in the compact but capable articulated loader market.’


Commenting on the new alliance Raimo Ala-Korpi, MD for AVANT Tecno UK Ltd stated that “This change and addition is part of AVANT’s ongoing strategy, to improve our service and support for both existing and future compact loader clients in the UK. By joining forces and adding Ben Burgess to AVANT dealership network, we are able to increase our market presence of an excellent product backed up with the first class service.”


In addition to stocking new machinery, all Ben Burgess GroundsCare depots will hold comprehensive parts and attachment stocks, as well as having models available to hire.
