Kubota has announced that Lister Wilder is to widen its dealer area to extend into the South West of England.
The expansion will see the company move into Somerset to support agricultural and ground care customers from its newest Kubota centre, located at Keynsham, Bristol.
“Lister Wilder’s expansion further strengthens Kubota’s commitment to its customers and the markets in which our business operates,” said Henry Bredin, general manager of Kubota’s Tractor Business Unit.
“This move sees Lister Wilder continue to strengthen its partnership with Kubota, as it actively supports a wider customer base in both agricultural and ground care sectors.”
Lister Wilder was the first full-line Kubota dealer in Europe and has already established a Kubota centre in Meadowlands, Bibury, Gloucestershire.
Both centres have led to the creation of new jobs in sales, after-sales and service, as well as parts and warranty departments. The new Bristol centre is scheduled to open on the 3rd of May.
“We’re pleased to be a part of this exciting journey with Kubota, but just as importantly, we’re looking forward to welcoming new and existing agricultural and ground care customers through the doors at Keynsham,” said Phill Hughes, sales director for Lister Wilder.
