Silvan Australia has cemented a twenty-year long association as the sole Australian distributor of the Nobili range of mulchers manufactured in Italy.
Australia’s top four Silvan-Nobili dealers recently visited the manufacturing plant of Nobili in Molinella, in the province of Emilia Romagna in Italy’s northern industrial and food heartland.
The four dealers in the delegation were Brahm Osborn of Chesterfield Machinery, Rutherford NSW, Michael Dotta of Serafin AgPro, Griffith NSW and Peter Field of Dover and Sons, Beaudesert QLD with Alan Mollenhauer of Barambah Machinery, Murgon QLD.
Their trip reflected their success as achieving Australia’s leading dealership sales of Nobili mulchers in calendar 2017.
They were joined on their trip to Italy by Silvan representatives Gavin Wheatcroft and Ian Davison.
Mr Wheatcroft says “the factory visit enabled these top Nobili dealers to see the work that goes into the production of the quality Nobili range of mulchers, together with the product development that is ongoing and to see emerging mulcher products that are in the pipeline.
“Founded over sixty years ago the privately-owned Nobili company virtually created this important implement sector and became the product leader in tractor powered mulchers and their range is exported to virtually every corner of the world.
“The northern Italian province of Emilia Romagna is the home of numerous high tech industrial and manufacturing businesses, many of which have grown out, of or in support of the region’s recognition as Italy’s farming and food product heartland.
“Courtesy of Nobili and their local contacts the Silvan group was also able to visit a regional neighbour the Lamborghini factory and museum and also the nearby Ferrari museum including a test-drive of one of their models”.
The Silvan- Nobili delegation en route to Bologna also visited other leading Italian product suppliers in pump company Comet and valve and nozzle manufacturer Arag.
Both these businesses hold long established international reputations for quality products, their ongoing development and their export achievements.
Mr Wheatcroft says, “it is always beneficial to see what goes on behind the scenes in high tech manufacturers where the emphasis on product quality through state of the art manufacturing and new product innovation is always paramount”.
