Jensen in the UK - Press release
Oct 11, 2015 - 6:54 PM - by Steve Bullman
Jensen in the UK – industry-leading wood chippers
Getting the job done since 1884

At the beginning of the year, Jensen began to export to the UK through a brand new dealer network after over 15 years of collaboration with a sole dealer.

Jensen sought new partners who offered the most industry experience, the best customer service levels and the deepest knowledge of the brand’s industry-leading products. The highly respected German manufacturer was particularly interested in dealers who are accustomed to doing business with all levels of customer, from independent arborists to contractors and local authorities. The four dealers were chosen via a rigorous selection process to represent the historic Jensen brand. They will import their machines, spare parts and support from the factory in the birthplace of the chipper, a village called Maasbüll in North Germany.

Visit Jensen at the Saltex show in Birmingham... [Read More]
