GCB joins forces with Dennis and SISIS

Gloucestershire clubs will be able to save money on new ground machinery thanks to a new partnership between the GCB, Dennis and SISIS.

The agreement, which is one of the first of its kind in the country, means that GCB affiliated clubs will benefit from an agreed discount structure on all Dennis and SISIS turf maintenance equipment.

In addition, the Board will receive further investment which will be used to support clubs with grants to improve their grounds.

The partnership is similar to the preferred supplier agreements the GCB has with other companies including Lister Wilder, St Austell Brewery, Utilitrack, Jelf Insurance and Pegler Yorkshire.

GCB chief executive Steve Silk said: “We are delighted to announce this new partnership with Dennis and SISIS who are world leaders in turf maintenance equipment.

“Buying new machinery and grounds equipment are some of the biggest costs clubs face so it is fantastic to be able to offer our members such substantial savings with two companies that are the very best in their field.

“We are committed to helping clubs to source the best services and to save money while doing so and this partnership adds to the strong list of preferred suppliers and partners we have built up.”

Dennis and sister-firm SISIS have been producing turf maintenance equipment for more than 90 years. Based in Derbyshire their products are assembled by experienced engineers using the finest materials. Dennis are renowned for their state-of-the-art mowers – many with multiple attachments – while SISIS’ cutting edge products include scarifiers, aerators and slitters. Both companies also offer a wide range of hand tools and have established themselves as the brands of choice for groundsmen at both grass roots and professional levels across sports.

Roger Moore, sales and marketing  manager at Dennis and SISIS welcomed the new partnership with the GCB.

He said:

“Following on from the fantastic level of enthusiasm and committment shown by the Gloucester groundsmen at the recent groundsmen’s seminar, this partnership was the perfect way to continue our support with educational events and machinery.

The GCB are a very forward thinking association and we are looking forward to working alongside them, supporting their groundsmen.”
