Jacobsen, a Textron Inc. company, announced its global sales full line of quality turf equipment increased 13.7 percent in 2013. This marks the second straight year the company saw double-digit sales growth.
In addition to global sales, 68 percent of Jacobsen’s North American sales territories saw year-over-year sales growth.
Jacobsen said the increase is partly the result of significant investments the company made in additional sales staff, customer support, dealer presence and new products.
“In 2013, we continued to make investments in all areas of our business,” said Ric Stone, vice president of sales and marketing for Jacobsen. “We increased our sales and support staff, expanded our dealer network, and launched several new exciting products including the LF510 large area reel mower, the new AR522 contour rotary mower and the all-new AR722T contour rotary mower.”
Jacobsen acquired Dixie Chopper earlier this month. Dixie Chopper is a Coatesville, Ind.-based manufacturer of zero-turn radius mowers for commercial and residential markets.
