Touring Ransomes Jacobsen

By |  July 11, 2013

So beat after a long day in Ipswich…

Well, I toured Ransomes Jacobsen today. In fact, I was told that 1) I’m the first American journalist (of our current crop) to make the trip and 2) I was allowed in a couple demo areas where no journalist was allowed before.

It may all sound crazy, but I have to tell you — the Ransomes Jacobsen folks treated me like a king. Just fantastic, really.

I’ve got to get some sleep — on my way to London tomorrow. But here are a few photos, until next time…
