With 2018 marking the 20th anniversary of Silvan’s partnership with Nobili in Australia, four Silvan dealers who sold the most Nobili mulchers during 2017 were rewarded with a trip to Italy in mid-April to visit the Nobili factory and sightseeing.
The dealers represented were Chesterfield Australia, Serafin Ag Pro, Dover & Sons and Barambah Machinery along with Ian Davison and Gavin Wheatcroft from Silvan Australia. The trip started in Rome to see the sights such as the Colosseum, Vatican, Fontana di Trevi and Pantheon before making our way to Bologna for the remainder of the week.
While in Bologna we took the opportunity to visit long-term Silvan spraying component suppliers, Comet & Arag. The group were impressed by both the attention to detail and introduction of new technology for more efficient manufacturing at both factories. Following a day trip to Venice we then spent the remainder of the trip with Nobili. A full day was spent at the Nobili factory where we were shown the mulcher production process from beginning to end along with product training on the Nobili mulcher range. This gave all members of the group an appreciation of what goes into building a Nobili mulcher and what makes them different to others on the market. It also opened everyone’s eyes to opportunities to introduce other Nobili models into their local market.
Silvan would like to thank Nobili for their support over the past 20 years and their hospitality on the recent dealer trip. Silvan looks forward to the partnership continuing long into the future.
