Kubota (UK) Ltd is pleased to announce that HRN Tractors Ltd is to become a Kubota full-line dealer in Scotland across its six depots, with effect from today (17 September 2020).

While HRN Tractors will represent Kubota construction equipment for all of Scotland, its agricultural products will be available for depots north of Perth, with groundcare and professional turf products for the region north of Dundee.

“This appointment reinforces Kubota’s commitment to its customers and the market,” explains David Hart, managing director of Kubota (UK). “As a full-line dealer, HRN Tractors will be in a strong position to make the future investments required in facilities, technology and staff, to actively support our customers across agricultural, groundcare and construction sectors.”

HRN Tractors was established by the Barclay family in 1980, and is a well-known and respected name throughout the farming community. In addition to its extensive dealership activities, the family also farms across 2,000 acres of combinable crops and is home to the pedigree Harestone herd. With its head office at Insch, HRN Tractors has depots at Turriff, Kinloss, Muir of Ord, Caithness and Balbeggie.

“HRN is delighted to have received the Kubota franchise,” says Hamish Bruce, dealer principal of HRN Tractors. “It supplies us with a wide range of agricultural, construction and groundcare products to sell to our growing customer base. We believe that Kubota has massive potential for market growth in Scotland, and that HRN and Kubota have a very bright future together.”
