Kubota (UK) Ltd has announced that dealership George Browns Ltd has opened a new full-line depot in Witney, Oxfordshire. The opening of this new premises follows the closure of its groundcare-only Haddenham depot and creates a wider spread of locations across the dealer’s sales area.
“Geographically, our new depot in West Oxfordshire puts George Browns and Kubota within easier reach for many more customers,” explained Steve Brown, managing director of George Browns. “This is another strategic move for our long-term business partnership with Kubota, to grow the groundcare and agricultural machinery aspects of the business.”
The new site offers easy access for customers and more workshop space internally and externally. Longer term, the company plans to employ twelve people at the depot, as well as apprentices for parts and service roles.
“It’s great to be part of the local economy, by bringing business and job creation into the area,” said George Browns’ group sales manager for agriculture, James Gibbins. “And as a full-line depot, Witney will be providing sales, service, parts and support for the Kubota tractor and implement ranges, in addition to Kubota groundcare equipment.”
Henry Bredin, general manager of Kubota (UK)’s Tractor Business Unit, fully supports the relocation: “We’re delighted that George Browns continues to develop its partnership with Kubota,” he said. “This new depot is a tactical move that actively supports a wider customer base in both agricultural and groundcare sectors, across the Browns’ area,”
