Kubota (UK) Ltd is pleased to announce that GGM is to widen its Kubota portfolio as it expands into the agricultural sector with higher horsepower M-series tractors and R0 loaders, to sit alongside its existing groundcare business.
The extended product range is a logical step for the dealership, as it looks to broaden its customer base with a full range of Kubota tractors suited to the agricultural sector. The additional models will include M6001 Utility, M6002 and M7003 models spanning 104-175hp, plus corresponding LK tractor-loader models and R0 pivot steer loaders.
“GGM’s expansion into agriculture continues to reinforce Kubota’s commitment to its customers and the markets,” explained Henry Bredin, general manager of Kubota (UK)’s Tractor Business Unit. “GGM already has considerable M-series tractor experience, having delivered on sales, service and support with smaller M4003 and M5002 models to a broad spectrum of customers and industries.”
As a specialist supplier of tractors and high-quality professional groundcare machinery, GGM has a long-standing business relationship with Kubota which spans more than 45 years. Based in Colne, Lancashire, with a second depot at Haydock, Merseyside, GGM will be accessible to agricultural customers throughout Merseyside, parts of Lancashire and West Yorkshire.
Accomplished in meeting the needs of horticultural, local authority, estate management, golf and sports turf sectors, this family-owned and run dealership employs a team of over 40 staff, headed-up by managing director Chris Gibson, his wife Hilary and son Thomas.
“This is an exciting new chapter for our business,” explained GGM’s Chris Gibson. “Many of our staff already have experience and knowledge of the smaller M-series tractors, and we’re in the process of increasing our sales, service and engineering teams to support new and existing customers with Kubota’s higher horsepower tractors and implements, as we extend into the agricultural sector.”
Mr Gibson highlighted that GGM’s experience of delivering fixed cost service contracts for the groundcare sector, backed up by a comprehensive Kubota Care warranty package, is an aspect that many agricultural customers could benefit from.
“We know just how robust and reliable the smaller M-series tractors are, and we’ve every confidence that the higher-powered models will deliver the same levels of Japanese reliability along with a competitive fixed cost of ownership,” he said.
“We already have a strong and competent team that is capable of delivering first class customer service and support, with professional groundcare machinery,” said Chris Gibson. “And we’re confident of replicating that same level of support across the farming sector.”
