Bednar debuted in Cereals 2013

Just weeks ago Knight Ltd. was appointed as our UK importer and the first three machines, universal Fenix FO 4000, high speed disc XO 5000_F and seedbed cultivators SO 6000, were delivered in urgency to take part in Cereals 2013 - one of the most important UK's agricultural show that was held in June. 64 hectares of exhibition area and more than 26,000 visitors in two days, many of whom came to visit Knight's stand to check yellow news there - some more yellow than the others.

Biggest new product introductions by Knight ever!

"I think we will be doing our biggest ever new product introduction!" Mr.Brian Knight, owner and General Manager of Knight Ltd., noted when his team was yet discussing which Bednar machines should be presented in Cereals.  Company's own two new sprayers, heavy cultivator, plus three Bednar machines were dominating it's stand and therefore making visitors stop and take at least short chat with staff.

Optimistic future outlook

David Main, Knight's Sales Manager, is optimistic about the future: "I see people, dealer personnel and farmers, stopping at the stand, waiting until being able to talk to our guys and ask sensible questions," he says.  "I feel they are genuinely interested.  I look forward to first demonstrations to check that interest in practice.  We hope for some orders still this year!"
