Double Lbuys in

AMERICAs largest manufacturer of potato harvesters, Double L Manufacturing of American Falls, Idaho, now has a stake in Richard Pearson Group.

This follows the refinancing and restructuring of the company.

It is understood that Dowdeswell will continue to manufacture the Pearson range of harvesters, which will be sold through a beefed-up distribution network. New machines manufactured by a Double L – and described as being complimentary to the Pearson range – are to be added soon.
