Laporte-CPC specialises in the manufacture of clay pigeon target equipment, which offers CLA members an opportunity to create a high-revenue use for their land.
The company has provided traps, targets and information on setting up shoots for many landowners and farmers who have wanted to diversify into new areas, which can generate an alternative revenue stream to contribute to profitability.
“Shoots can be set up on a temporary or permanent basis and can be run for up to 28 days a year without planning permission,” explains Laporte-CPC marketing executive Jonathan Mitchell. “Many of the top grounds in the country started out running these smaller, highly profitable shoots before developing into a fully commercial operation. In many of the commercial situations the shooting ground can end up supporting the farm.
“Laporte-CPC is in a unique position to offer the complete package, as we manufacture the market leading traps and clays, providing the perfect starter kits for setting up of such activities. Our promotional offers provide a large numbers of free clays with every trap purchased giving our customers all the equipment they require to get started and at the most competitive prices.
“Laporte has built its reputation on reliability and durability as well the ultimate in performance. Not only do we supply the equipment used for Straw Bail events and many of the top commercial grounds up and down the country but we also supply our equipment, both traps and clays, for the last eight consecutive Olympics including Rio 2016.”
