CHARLOTTE, N.C. – Jacobsen, a Textron, Inc. company, has increased global sales of its full line of quality turf equipment 13.7 percent in 2013. This marks the second straight year the company saw double-digit sales growth.

In addition to global sales being up nearly 14 percent, 68 percent of Jacobsen’s North American sales territories saw year-over-year sales growth. Jacobsen says the increase is partly the result of significant investments the company made in additional sales staff, customer support, dealer presence and new products.

Jacobsen has continued its expansion strategy into 2014, announcing the acquisition of Dixie Chopper earlier this month. 

In 2014, Jacobsen also plans to add to its sales force, launch additional product enhancements and innovations, and work with channel partners to expand and improve sales and service.
