As Sales Manager for J A Jones & Sons (Churchtown) Ltd., wholesale growers and suppliers of Hardy nursery stock, I have worked with Colin since he started Land technology Limited in the early part of 2019. Despite the pressures that are always present in our industry, along with the added issues that come with starting a new business, I have always found dealing with Colin and the team at Land Technology an absolute pleasure.
They “understands the job” as people say, which is a quality often lacking in others. For example, if the weather is particularly bad and we are unable to lift trees from our fields to make a desired delivery date, Colin will work with us to find a solution that will work for everybody, especially his clients whose requirements are always of paramount importance to him.
Communications via email and telephone work very well between us. The Land Technology guys always returns calls if they are unavailable to answer. Any issues that we need to sort out are dealt with in a timely manner and with total professionalism.
Tender documents that I receive to price for Land technology Ltd are very clear, precise, and easy to follow. Colin and his staff, due to their horticultural background and expertise, can visualise the end product when they put together listings of plants and landscape materials, that are of the highest quality. They always insist on top quality products, without compromise. However, if certain items are unavailable, they are happy to enter into discussion in order to find suitable alternatives that will enhance the scheme.
Land Technology paid for their first order with us in advance as per our terms of business, subsequently setting up a Credit Account without delay for ongoing trade. Since then, they have placed substantial orders month on month and always paid within our terms without requiring any prompting whatsoever. Colin is always looking to improve the ways of working to give the best possible value and product for his clients. I am currently in discussion with him, with a view to agreeing plant lists in advance with some of his clients, to enable us to contract grow the stock to the highest standard, thus ensuring best value, top quality, and continuity of supply.
Colin is a thorough negotiator, and has a keen eye for detail, which makes such a venture possible and a very exciting prospect for the future. I am very pleased to see that Colin and all the team at Land Technology Ltd. Have been considered for this award. The relationship between them and J.A Jones & Sons Ltd. Continues to go from strength to strength, and I am looking forward to working with them on many challenging and rewarding projects in the future.
