Global Turf Equipment announces new branch office in Denmark

SAN ANTONIO, Fla. -- Global Turf Equipment (GTE) - the world's largest independent seller and exporter of pre-owned golf course equipment - announces it has established Global Turf Equipment Denmark in partnership with Denmark golf-industry veteran Tom Larsen.

Larsen has been selling pre-owned turf equipment in Denmark since 2009, and repairing an array of light and heavy machinery for decades. A testament to his well-rounded background, he has held a wide variety of positions in the golf course operations realm, including superintendent, clubhouse manager, general manager and membership coordinator.

The new partnership will allow Danish golf course and turf professionals to access GTE's unmatched inventory of pre-owned product. Serving golf facilities in more than 80 countries worldwide and all 50 U.S. states, GTE offers golf course owners, operators, and superintendents a substantial cost savings by offering late model alternatives to brand-new machines. GTE prides itself on a reputation for high-quality, low-hour, off-lease equipment.

"We're very excited to begin this association with one of Denmark's foremost turf equipment experts," says Jim Sartain, President, Global Turf Equipment. "Tom is a long-time believer of the advantages of pre-owned golf course maintenance machinery and important to our further expansion in Europe."

The new office also means Danish customers can now take advantage of local warranty support.

In the fall of 2012, GTE established an overseas partnership with the U.K.'s County Mowers as the first step in long-term plans to strengthen its European distribution network. This new office, located in Kolding, Denmark represents the next step in GTE's European expansion.

GTE's 30,000 square-foot USA headquarters stocks more than 650 machines, including fairway mowers, greens mowers, top dressers, turf aerators, sprayers, utility vehicles and more.
