United Kingdom became yellow!

Ok, you may not necessarily notice that if you fly over the country. It became yellow for us at Bednar because we recently assigned Knight Farm Machinery Ltd. as our sole distributor in United Kingdom, one of the most important European markets. Knight Farm Machinery Ltd. is family company recognized in UK for manufacturing exclusive quality machinery, first of all, sprayers.

Ok, you may not necessarily notice that if you fly over the country.  It became yellow for us at Bednar because we recently assigned Knight Farm Machinery Ltd. as our sole distributor in United Kingdom, one of the most important European markets.  Knight Farm Machinery Ltd. is family company recognized in UK for manufacturing exclusive quality machinery, first of all, sprayers.  The company's range includes few models of cultivators as well.  "We can't allocate so many  resources to development of our cultivation range as Bednar" Mr. Knight says.  "We prefer to concentrate on our core business and import other products that match ours in terms of build quality."  It was great pleasure to welcome Mr. Brian Knight and his delegation in Czech Republic.

 

Intensive visit program

 

The visit started at headquarters of Bednar FMT in Prague.  Guests were introduced to current machinery, projects in pipeline and future visions, had a chance to look at the computer screens in design department.  Then few farms were visited that operate Strom-Bednar machinery different periods of time.  "It makes sense to look at the machines that were already in real, havy use," says David Main, Sales Manager, "You get good impression about its durability."  Finally the day ended in the factory.  Knight team was positively impressed by investments made and overall organisation of the production.  Unfortunately they came just few days before assembly of the machines ordered by themselves.

Involvment of owner family is very important

 

Asked to summarize his impressions Mr.Brian Knight said: "Well, I haven't seen anything unexpected.  I saw the machines before, I noted their clever design and outstanding quality, so I came with high expectations and was not either discouraged or dissapointed.  For me it is very important that owner and the whole family is so deeply immersed in the business.  By own experience I know, how small things are important in manufacturing business and you can't learn them from spreadsheets and presentations.  I am very optimistic about the future, we are talking same language!"
