Husqvarna, a division of the world’s largest provider of outdoor power equipment, hosted a select group of 45 of its commercial customers for a four-day conference to address the latest trends and technological developments affecting the industry. The summit took place September 16-19, 2016, at Husqvarna’s Charlotte headquarters.
“Our second annual Commercial Summit was a wonderful success,” said Walt Rose, National Sales Manager for commercial lawn, garden and tree care customers at Husqvarna North America. “Our products are designed for professionals, by professionals, so this event is the perfect venue to share our ideas and exchange feedback with our commercial customers about how we can best support their needs.”
Attendees participated in forums focused on sharing best practices as well as hands-on demonstrations of the latest technology with Husqvarna product experts. Key note speakers included a representative from Sebert Landscaping, who discussed their experience incorporating battery-powered outdoor power equipment into their business.
The Commercial Summit featured several new, professional-grade solutions that optimize operational efficiencies and provide superior performance. Highlights included:
- Fleet Services, a cloud-based data system for landscaping professionals to manage their commercial fleets
- Updates to Husqvarna’s Battery Series
- Additions to Husqvarna’s pro-handheld series
- The commercial applications of Husqvarna Automower®, a line of robotic lawn mowers
