CLUB CAR APPOINTS HUNT FOREST GROUP AS A UK DISTRIBUTION PARTNER
Club Car, the world’s largest manufacturer of small-wheel electric vehicles and an Official Supplier to the European Tour, has announced Hunt Forest Group as a new UK distribution partner.
Hunt Forest Group is based in the south of England, with nine branches across five counties, and supplies specialist machinery, parts and services to the professional turf, construction and residential markets. Earlier this year it acquired Smart Agricultural Services to nearly double in size, now employing 180 staff.
The new partnership will help strengthen Club Car’s presence in the south and south-west regions of the UK, supplying their industry-leading golf, commercial and consumer vehicles to a large, diverse customer base.
Andy Bourke, Club Car’s Regional Manager UK&I & Nordics, said: “This is a very exciting partnership which will allow Club Car to continue growing across the south of the UK.
“There are more than 120 golf clubs in this region, and having Hunt Forest Group on board will allow Club Car to serve and support this market. Hunt Forest Group is an ambitious organisation that places an emphasis on excellent service and strong relationships, so it’s an excellent fit with Club Car and we look forward to building together.”
Ed Smales, Hunt Forest Group Sales Director, said: “We are extremely excited to add Club Car to our portfolio. Club Car will strengthen our position in the professional turf and commercial market, giving us fantastic product power.
“Coupled with our service and support, we feel this will be a mutually beneficial partnership for not only Hunt Forest and Club Car but also our customer base and the existing Club Car customers.”
Club Car’s wide range of highly acclaimed vehicles will be available through Hunt Forest Group, including its versatile, reliable commercial cars favoured by some of the world’s biggest resorts, airports and sports organisations.
The region’s golf facilities will also now have Club Car’s vast selection of innovative golf products at their disposal, including the award-winning Tempo, the flagship fleet cart, which can be customised with numerous options including GPS Connected Technology.
Club Car is the official supplier of golf cars The Professional Golfers’ Association (PGA) and St Andrews Links Trust, as well as the European Tour.
