In early June Bruce and Hamish took the opportunity to visit our suppliers in Europe. Firstly was a quick stop at Househam in the UK to look at both the Spirit and Merlin, Househam’s new self propelled sprayer models. With a tour of both production facilities and a meet and greet with staff concluded it was time to let the boys loose in these new machines. We were provided with a large open field, which we used to test the operational features, comfort and driveability of these sprayers.
Onto Denmark and first stop was Heva in Nykobing Mors. Again the company has two locations close together. Product training was taken over two days and tours we conducted of both factories. We also meet some local farms and studied the way European farmers are growing Oil Seed Rape.
Finally to Bredal in Vejle Ost. Bredal currently operate from three locations with the biggest being their new production facility housing a new powder coating plant. Again product training was conducted over two days. We also visited the Test Hall operated by the University of Aarhus where we tested various fertiliser spreader configurations.
