Victa announces auction of 8 Millionth mower with proceeds going to the RSPCA
Iconic brand Victa Lawncare has celebrated a major milestone by rolling out their eight millionth lawnmower. Victa employees and associates witnessed the unique one-off mower being assembled at their head office, located at Moorebank NSW on Wednesday 28th September.
It was only fitting that the eight millionth mower was lovingly assembled with the help of a group of employees intrinsically linked with the brand's continuing growth. Employees like Alain Lazane and Warren Hoskings have been with Victa for the long haul, overseeing production of not only the seventh millionth mower but also the six millionth mower, which was produced back in 1997.
Victa's CEO, Thomas Rugg praised the efforts of his tight knit production team, several of whom have traversed different eras of Victa’s 59-year lifecycle.
“We are extremely proud to have reached this important milestone of eight million lawnmowers and we have the extended Victa family, as well as the Australian public to thank,” he said
Victa have also announced that the unique one-off design will be auctioned from the 15th November with all proceeds going to support the RSPCA. “This mower provides a truly unique piece of history to the successful bidder and we are thrilled to support the RSPCA in such a memorable manner,” Mr Rugg added.
The Victa story spans almost 60 years and began humbly in Mervyn Victor Richardson’s suburban Sydney backyard in Concord. The Victa brand evolved into a household name, remaining relevant in the marketplace through its reputation for innovation, superior performance and rock-solid reliability.
Final bidding for the unique one-off mower will end on the 14th of December, for your chance to own this piece of history visit www.victa.com from the 15th November, where a link to the auction will be available.
