For­get the rest, here’s the best

Ital­ian spe­cial­ist vine­yard and hor­ti­cul­tural equip­ment man­u­fac­turer, Oriz­zonti, has signed a dis­tri­bu­tion agree­ment with New Zealand com­pany, Agtek.

The Orchardist - - What’s New -

The Oriz­zonti brand is rel­a­tively new to the lo­cal mar­ket, but is well known in its home coun­try Italy, and in France where it has fast be­come a mar­ket leader in the hor­ti­cul­tural and viti­cul­tural sec­tors.

Oriz­zonti ex­port man­ager, Mr Ric­cardo Raneri, said they were look­ing for a pro­fes­sional, ex­pe­ri­enced dis­trib­u­tor who had a strong fo­cus on the hor­ti­cul­tural mar­ket, so when the op­por­tu­nity arose to work with Agtek, they leapt at it. “The Agtek team are very ex­pe­ri­enced and fo­cussed,” says Mr Raneri. “Our as­so­ci­a­tion will give us a real head start. We’re very ex­cited about build­ing the Oriz­zonti brand here in New Zealand. We also share their be­lief in top qual­ity prod­ucts matched by ex­cel­lent ser­vice and cus­tomer re­la­tion­ships.”

With over 40 years’ ex­pe­ri­ence Oriz­zonti’s strong val­ues based around the needs of their clients, pro­fes­sion­al­ism, strate­gic mar­ket­ing and the strength they place on good cus­tomer re­la­tion­ships cou­pled to a deep com­mit­ment to qual­ity of prod­uct, the com­pany quickly grew from strength to strength.

Agtek man­ag­ing direc­tor, Gayne Car­roll says Agtek was at­tracted to the Oriz­zonti Com­pany over other man­u­fac­tur­ers be­cause of its com­mit­ment to cut­ting edge equip­ment and out­stand­ing tech­nol­ogy, proved by many patents and awards, along with its abil­ity to sup­ply a wide range of equip­ment.

“Be­fore com­mit­ting to dis­trib­ute the brand, we first tri­alled prod­uct here in lo­cal con­di­tions in nu­mer­ous ap­pli­ca­tions, and in all cases the Oriz­zonti out per­formed ex­ist­ing com­pe­ti­tion, so much so that each op­er­a­tor tri­alling a unit or­dered a

ma­chine for them­selves.”

Many of the fea­tures stan­dard on the Oriz­zonti mulchers are ob­vi­ous, such as heavy-duty con­struc­tion, large di­am­e­ter and heavy­weight load car­ry­ing rear roller which re­moves the need for side skids – hy­draulic side shift op­er­at­ing on long-life self lu­bri­cat­ing bushes, plus many other fea­tures

im­por­tant in the long-life and per­for­mance of your mulcher.

Gayne Car­roll says: “Mulcher and mower per­for­mance is prin­ci­pally dic­tated by tip ve­loc­ity, ro­tor rigid­ity and dis­charge ca­pac­ity – all crit­i­cal fea­tures that aren’t ap­par­ent on a cur­sory in­spec­tion in a dealer’s yard. If you want a true in­di­ca­tion of just how well the Oriz­zonti per­forms ask your dealer for a work­ing demon­stra­tion, you won’t need much con­vinc­ing af­ter that.”
