Lowes lawn trimmer history
- by admin
Lowes has been a lawn trimmers business since 1955, when it started selling lawn trims.
The company was sold to the United States Department of Agriculture in 2000.
It’s one of several US lawn trimming businesses that have been around for generations.
But the company’s latest move comes as the company seeks to regain its relevance and market share following a downturn in the lawn industry.
The company plans to invest $200 million over the next five years to revamp its operations, including building a new facility to house a new fleet of lawn trimmings, said Greg Williams, senior vice president of marketing.
Lowes will also hire more than 20 workers at the new factory, and it plans to add another 25 employees over the coming years, Williams said.
In the past, the company has been the only lawn trim company in the US.
But Lowes plans to become more competitive by developing its own product and marketing its products as a result, Williams added.
It’s also looking to expand into new markets.
At a time when lawn tramps are struggling to make ends meet, the US government is helping businesses by helping them reduce their energy bills and cut back on maintenance, Williams noted.
And that is something Lowes could help address.
The lawn industry has grown rapidly over the last few decades, as lawn tramp customers have become more sophisticated about cutting their lawns and cutting lawn waste.
“Lowes can help them to get back to that level of efficiency, to the level that is competitive with the traditional lawn trumper, to give them an opportunity to grow, and to get the value proposition that is important to the business,” Williams said, adding that the company is looking to offer customers lower energy costs and higher value for money.
While the company plans a similar renovation to its existing factory, Williams stressed that it’s still in the early stages of the renovation and the project is still in its early stages.
The work will take about a year to complete, he said.
