Schiller Grounds Care partners with Pennypack Trust


Schiller Grounds Care, a Southampton-based manufacturer of lawn and garden equipment, has announced a new partnership with the Pennypack Ecological Restoration Trust of Huntingdon Valley.

In addition to encouraging staff to volunteer at the Pennypack Trust, Schiller will donate equipment to help the trust maintain its extensive grounds, starting with a BOB-CAT 52” AirFX™ mower.

As steward of 833 acres of Montgomery County’s second-largest privately owned natural area that is open to the public, the Pennypack Trust depends on the support of various benefactors.

Schiller’s donation of the state-of-the art BOB-CAT AirFX mower will allow staff to save time in creating pathways throughout the protected meadows as well as maintaining the corporate grounds.

“Not only is it faster and self-propelled, it is also extremely agile and able to work on steep slopes and through tight spaces,” Chris Mendel, executive director at the trust, said of the mower. “This is useful on trails and also in tree plantations where grass and weeds are not too thick or well established.”

Claude Corcos, vice-president of sales and marketing at Schiller Grounds Care, said, “We are a strong believer in the work the trust does and the benefit they provide our region. We want the Schiller team to enjoy and support that work. The mower donation was simply an attempt to underscore our belief.”
