Harvesting Connections: Husqvarna Looks Forward to Cultivating Relationships at NAMPO 2024


Husqvarna, a leading manufacturer of outdoor power products, is thrilled to continue its proud tradition of participation in Grain SA’s annual NAMPO agricultural exhibition in 2024. Scheduled from 14th to 17th May, the event presents the perfect opportunity for the company to engage directly with the farmers and landowners whose daily operations rely heavily on their products.

“NAMPO is a significant annual event for the agricultural sector and one that we never miss,” says Tim Isabirye, Marketing Manager for Husqvarna South Africa. “We have the privilege of meeting incredible people with extraordinary stories who use our products to improve productivity and maximise crop yields. For example, last year, we met Rahill Sodha, a 10-year-old budding farmer who visited our stand to buy his first brushcutter, and whose passion for farming at such a young age was an absolute inspiration.”

He adds, “We believe it is an honour that farmers choose our products to stand alongside them in the vital task of feeding the nation. As such,” Isabirye says, “we decided that the theme for this year’s NAMPO Husqvarna stand will be: ‘Ons is aan jou kant’ – ‘We are by your side’. This theme underscores Husqvarna’s unwavering commitment to supporting farmers in every step of their journey with our products and services.”

As always NAMPO 2024 visitors can expect a showcase of Husqvarna’s range of affordable outdoor power tools tailored for small-scale farmers: from ergonomic tillers and efficient sprayers to powerful generators and brushcutters. And limited NAMPO deals will be available to all visitors to the stand, including a soon-to-be-announced special on a Husqvarna garden tractor as well as other exclusive Husqvarna merchandise.  

However, the excitement at NAMPO 2024 doesn’t end there. Visitors will have the opportunity to engage with Pieter Smuts, Managing Director – South Africa and Regional Manager – Africa. Plus, the chance to meet rugby legend, Kwagga Smith, who credits his farming background and the mental and physical attributes he developed as a result, to his rugby success. Kwagga will be at the Husqvarna stand (F17) on Thursday 16 May 2024 between 12:00 and13:00. Visitors will be able to meet and greet him and can look forward to photo opportunities with the Springbok star and giveaways of signed rugby and marketing merchandise.

“Husqvarna aims to make visitors’ NAMPO 2024 experience a truly unforgettable one and we have pulled out all the stops to do just that. We look forward to welcoming members from the farming community and agricultural sector, not forgetting gardening enthusiasts and others, to our stand where they can explore our product ranges and discover how our solutions can assist their operations, ” Isabirye concludes.
