Lawn mower sales tipped to double

7:35 am on 8 April 2013

Masport is set to more than double its sales of lawn mowers to the North American market after signing a new distribution contract with a major distributor in the United States.

Integrated Distributors Network consists of six US and one Canadian outdoor power equipment distributors.

It was founded in 2004 to provide an exclusive national distribution system to supply Briggs & Stratton's parts to North American outdoor power garden servicing dealers.

Masport says it's already shipped 2000 mowers to the North American market since signing the contract, and expects to double that before the season ends in July.

It already ships around 150,000 mowers to 42 countries around the world annually.
