Cheshire, England: The Double A Trading Company Ltd has been named Campey Turf Care Systems’ Dealer of the Year for 2022.
The Double A Trading Company Ltd (Double A) was formed in 1996 and is a leading equipment supplier to the Scottish groundcare industry. The company has grown from small beginnings to become the largest professional turf machinery dealer in Scotland, employing 45 staff over three outlets from locations in Fife, Aberdeenshire and Glasgow.
Sandy Armit, Double A’s Managing Director, said: “Winning the Campey award of Best Dealer of the Year is a very welcome recognition of the hard work of the whole team that occurs on a daily basis. This only happens if we are all performing, whether that is sales, administration, parts or service. Everyone plays their part in creating a business customers want to buy from, and we can be very proud of that achievement.”
Recognised as ‘Scotland’s Leading Supplier of Groundcare Equipment’, Double A has been a Campey dealer for some 20 years.
Armit said: “We were approached by the late David Briggs from Campeys to take on the Dakota in 2004, which became our best-selling product. This opened a new and expanding market for us which we have since developed with sales of many Vredo Seeders, Shockwaves, Field Top Makers, and Air2 G2 Air Injection machines.
“The Campey range is so diverse and allows us to offer to a wide range of golf, commercial and local authority sports applications.”
A Full Business Member of the Asian Golf Industry Federation, Campey Turf Care Systems is one of Europe’s largest independent grounds care machinery dealers, supplying equipment to countries in most parts of the world.
Over the years, Campeys has earned a reputation for offering practical advice and outstanding aftercare service. The company acts as a new equipment dealer for some of the most respected grounds care machinery manufacturers including Dakota, Imants, Koro, Raycam, Vredo, Votex, GT Air 2G2 injector and Air 1 Injector aerator.
The company also has a thriving used machinery business and a subsidiary company, Tines Direct, which supplies replacement tines, blades, and replacement parts for a wide range of turf care machinery.
Responsibility for supplying Double A Trading Company is now in the hands of Campey product specialist Richard Heywood and the two companies continue to work together promoting Campey products across Scotland.
“It is a pleasure to work with Sandy and the brilliant team at Double A,” said Heywood. “We strive to assimilate the customers’ needs with our product range and good communication is essential.”
Armit added: “This direct support from Campey is key to our success and provides an invaluable benefit for the customer.
“We have grown the business steadily since 1996 but have had growth in the last five years, opening a new outlet in Aberdeenshire and taking over responsibility for John Deere Turf Equipment in the West of Scotland.
“Doing all of this through Covid and Brexit has had its challenges so now we are in a period of consolidation, making investment in people and training to ensure each part of our business is working at optimum performance before we move on to the next stage of our journey.”
