Ernest Doe & Sons Ltd acquires Bartram Mowers, strengthening its position in Suffolk and Norfolk
Today, Ernest Doe & Sons Ltd has purchased the business of Bartram Mowers.
Mark Bartram approached Ernest Doe to buy the Bartram Mowers business following notification that Ransomes Jacobsen were expanding Ernest Doe’s territory for their franchise to incorporate Suffolk and Norfolk.
Ernest Doe’s Managing Director, Colin Doe, said:
“The Bartram Mowers business is a good fit for Ernest Doe. We have three branches in Norfolk and three in Suffolk from which to support customers in the area. The Bartram Ipswich depot has moved to our Framlingham branch today, but we will trade from Bartram’s Norwich site for three months before moving it to our North Walsham branch.”
As part of the deal, Ernest Doe has also acquired Bartram’s established lawnmowersdirect e-commerce platform.
Colin Doe commented further:
“With our network of established branches in Norfolk and Suffolk, we are focussed on building on the high level of service Bartram have provided to their customers and are looking forward to fresh challenges as we enter this exciting new phase of our business.”
