Kubota restructures sales operations

12.30pm 28th February 2001 - Corporate

Kubota (UK) Ltd has brought together its three sales operations into one division working beneath a single banner, namely, Kubota Sales.

Covering the three formerly separate sales divisions of Tractors, Industrial and Construction Machinery, and Engines, the move is designed to enhance and extend customer support. It reflects the fact that customers for Kubota tractors and mowers are proving increasingly to be customers also for Kubota tracked excavators, engines, generators and other engine-powered Kubota equipment.

Kubota (UK) Ltd is a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Kubota Corporation, one of the largest manufacturing companies in Japan. The company employs more than 15,000 people world-wide and has a global turnover in excess of £6 billion.

Responsibility for the new combined sales operation lies with Kubota UK’s deputy managing director, Rene Orban, who becomes sales director in charge of all Kubota product sales. Operating from Kubota UK’s headquarters at Thame, Oxfordshire, the combined sales operation will have an annual turnover in excess of £50 million.

Among the products contributing to this figure are compact tractors, tracked mini excavators and small diesel engines, three product ranges of which Kubota is the world’s leading manufacturer.

Sales, parts and service support for the Kubota product ranges brought together within the single sales division will continue to be handled by a specialist distribution network of almost 90 Kubota-appointed and trained dealers throughout the United Kingdom and Ireland. The dealer network and customers are backed by Kubota UK’s extensive product support systems which received ISO 9002 accreditation in 1996 and are subject to continuous assessment and improvement.
