Gravely announces partnership with green industry consultant Marty Grunder

The Ariens Company announced a partnership between Gravely and Marty Grunder, Inc. and Grunder Landscaping Company at Grunder’s GROW 2015! conference, this year held in St. Simons Island, Ga.

Included in the three year partnership are several exclusive opportunities for Gravely users. Gravely customers will have access to discounts on registrations for Grunder’s annual GROW! conference, access to a Gravely learning summit lead by Grunder, a quarterly e-zine authored by Grunder containing industry insight and best practice and more.

In addition to the advantages the partnership brings directly to Gravely landscapers, the collaboration will provide valuable insight into the wants and needs of today’s landscape contractors, according to Ariens. This will help ensure the company is designing machines that meet the industry’s demands. Grunder will have access to Gravely equipment for his landscape company’s use, in exchange for his services.

“As a business owner, I’ve always relied on mentors to provide guidance and inspire me to improve myself constantly,” said Ariens Company Chairman & CEO Dan Ariens. “We’re committed to helping landscapers grow their business, not only by providing a high-quality, profitable product, but also by providing mentorship. That’s why our partnership with Marty Grunder is perfect for both landscapers and the Gravely brand. Marty’s personal success with his award-winning company makes him relevant, believable and the perfect person to show landscapers how to grow their businesses. He’s been there and done that.”

“We are beyond excited about this partnership with the Ariens Company and Gravely,” said Grunder Landscaping Company owner Marty Grunder. “For 20 years now, we’ve been teaching landscapers how to grow their businesses using the lessons learned at our living laboratory, Grunder Landscaping Company. To be able to inspire Gravely customers and help bring their landscaping businesses to new heights is an honor to say the least. We respect the Ariens Company and Gravely for what they stand for; Our values align with theirs, and this is truly a win-win partnership. Gravely is committed to helping their clients grow their business not only with the highest quality equipment available, but also by helping them run their businesses at a greater level of profitability with less stress, an initiative that I can’t wait to be a part of.”
