Bradfords Group announces first Kubota purchase

Bradfords Group, the South West’s leading supplier of building materials and plant equipment, has announced its first ever investment into Kubota construction machinery.

The deal, which was struck before but announced on stand at the EHS in Coventry’s Ricoh Arena, sees Bradfords add six Kubota machines to its hire fleet, including five K008-3 micro excavators and one K016-3 mini excavator.

Mark Eburne, Group Chief Executive at the Bradfords Group, commented on the deal: “There is growing demand amongst landscapers, fencers and railway sleeper experts in the South West to use plant equipment to facilitate their workload. Therefore this, coupled with the upturn in the housebuilding market recently, meant it made perfect sense for us at Bradfords to expand our current fleet.

“Kubota is a well respected brand in terms of machine reliability, durability and the after sales support it offers. However, it was the manufacturer’s recently launched Kubota Finance scheme that was the key to us making our first Kubota acquisition. The fact that the firm’s finance team could put together a flexible commercial package for us made the deal an easy decision. We see this as the start of a long working relationship with Kubota, with further investment in plant machinery to follow later this year.”

Leana Horton, Key Account Manager for Kubota UK’s construction division, added: “For Kubota UK, to start a business partnership with an established and reputable company such as the Bradfords Group is great achievement. With the group having 40 branches across the South West, Herefordshire and Worcestershire, this is a massive business opportunity for both parties and we look forward to working with Bradfords long into the future.”
