Kubota UK has strengthened its presence in the agricultural sector with the announcement that it has joined forces with Shropshire-based machinery dealer Battlefield Machinery Ltd.
The new partnership means that Battlefield Machinery is now Kubota’s key agricultural dealer covering an area south of Shrewsbury, which includes Telford and right down to Kidderminster.
Farmers and contractors across the region will now have access to Kubota’s machines with the depot showcasing its flagship M7001 Series (130hp to 170hp), along with Kubota’s recently launched M5001 Series (95hp to 113hp) and its MGX-III Series (90hp to 140hp). Kubota’s range of RTV Utility Vehicles will also be available, as well as the 50hp MK5000 utility tractor.
Battlefield Machinery, based on the Battlefield Enterprise Park on the outskirts of Shrewsbury, has taken over the premises formerly occupied by Ravenhill. The dealer officially opened last month for sales, service and parts, two months after Ravenhill closed its operation.
Richard Evans, Director at Battlefield Machinery Ltd, said: “We are delighted to officially open our doors as the independent dealer for Kubota Agriculture in this area. We believe there is a huge opportunity to target the professional farming market in south Shropshire and surrounding areas, with Kubota’s agricultural products.
“Kubota is one of the newer manufacturers in the UK agricultural sector, but it is growing fast and we are hopeful that we can develop together. We are very fortunate to have a wide range of farms on our doorstep to target, from the big arable farms to the east, to the smaller mixed and dairy farms. Teaming up with Kubota was a natural fit for us and we believe its range of tractors, which are designed to really add value to a farmers’ business, will be a perfect fit for our customer base.”
In addition to Kubota’s agricultural range, Battlefield Machinery also sells Kverneland implements, Marshall Trailers, McConnell hedge cutting equipment and Teagle muck spreaders and toppers.
