Our South Australian and New South Wales sales representatives Ashley Smart and his son Aaron, last week led a 16-strong group of South Australian farmers across the Nullabor to visit the company’s factories in Naval Base and Cockburn Central this week.
Most of the farmers were DBS owners with a few interested in assessing the products before committing to a purchase.
According to Ashley, the trip was a great success.

“This is our tenth time we have organised such a trip,” he said.
“It’s always good for farmers to see where there machines are built and to speak with the engineers, welders and general staff,” he said. “It builds up a solid relationship with Ausplow which has a great reputation for service back-up as well as building quality products that last.
“The guys were very impressed with the Naval Base sheds, particularly the new blast and paint booths.”

Ashley and Aaron, who also are directors of Airtec Australia, makers of low-drift spray nozzles, also included their latest employee in the tour – Ryan Taig, who is the Airtec and Ausplow sales representative for New South Wales.
“It has been a great opportunity for me to meet the Ausplow staff and put faces to names,” he said. “I’m very keen to expand Ausplow’s market share in New South Wales and it’s good to talk about how the company can respond to the needs of farmers over our way.
“The big thing I noticed over here is that you guys are very much leading the way in crop establishment techniques and the DBS has certainly got a lot to offer our guys.”

Ausplow managing director John Ryan AM was on hand to talk with farmers and join in an informative session on nutrient management, led by Ausplow researcher and Nutrian director Dave Seagreen.
