J.E. Rees & Sons moving forward with Kubota
Leading Welsh-based agricultural dealer J.E. Rees & Sons has entered into an exciting new partnership with Kubota UK as the company looks to enhance its service offering and expand its sales operations.
The partnership, which further strengthens Kubota’s agricultural dealer network, means that J.E. Rees & Sons can now offer its local farmer and contract customers a wider choice of professional farming solutions.
The dealership, which covers Carmarthenshire, Ceredigion and Pembrokeshire, will now supply Kubota’s complete range of high performance agricultural tractors from 60 to 175hp. These include its flagship M7001 Series, MGX-III Series, M5001 and L Series. In addition, J.E. Rees & Sons will also offer Kubota’s market leading RTV utility vehicles and Kubota grassland implements, which were introduced earlier this year to further strengthen its farm machinery portfolio.
“The quality of our dealer network is vital to our success,” commented Rob Edwards, Kubota UK’s Business Development Manager for its Agricultural division. “By strengthening this with the appointment of such a respected dealer in J.E. Rees & Sons highlights our commitment to provide machinery solutions delivered by a network that will help us drive growth in this sector.”
Now in its 50th year, J.E. Rees & Sons is an established family run business with two depots, Drefach Velindre and Llandovery, that cover the mid and eastern regions of Wales. With staff on hand who are fully trained in the latest tractor technology, the dealership has cemented its position as the leading supplier of agricultural equipment in the area, providing high levels of service and aftersales support.
Marc Rees, Partner at J.E. Rees & Sons, commented: “The extensive agricultural machinery range Kubota has at its disposal is very appealing to us and our customers will now be able to reap the benefits of solutions that can satisfy almost any requirement.
“It’s clear to see the strides Kubota is making in the agriculture market as it looks to build upon its position as a global player within the industry and this is something we’re very excited to be a part of. Our customers are already keen to see the machinery in action and we’re looking forward to working closely with Kubota moving forward.”
