The appointment follows Molson’s success across the South West where the dealer has supplied a new Kubota machine nearly every day since acquiring the dealership last year.
The 19-strong Kubota mini excavators range is the widest of its kind on the market and extends from the lightweight 980kg K008-3, right up to the eight tonne KX080-3.
Molson managing director Jonathan Wilson said: “We are delighted that we are further expanding our association with Kubota and will now be selling their mini excavators throughout the South West and South Wales.
“Kubotas are great products and they are also very nice people to work with. So far it has gone extremely well, we have sold products from across the entire range, which is allowing us to increase our share of the mini excavator market in this area.
“Naturally it helps that Kubota has such a good reputation and its machines are state-of-the-art, but it is a major plus to be able to offer a three year warranty with all of their models.
“We pride ourselves on our after-care at Molson and we have never been able to offer such a long warranty before.”
Molson’s appointment also results in boundary changes for Kubota Construction Equipment Division in the South West, with existing dealer Lister Wilder, who had previously covered the area, now concentrating on the M4 corridor.
In South Wales Molson takes over the Kubota Construction Equipment territory previously handled by Cambrian Plant Sales.
Kubota (UK) Ltd – Construction Equipment sales & marketing manager, Richard Harrison, said: “Molson are vey well established in their region and signing this partnership was a win-win situation for both parties.
“Molson’s customers will benefit from being able to buy from the widest and best-selling range of mini excavators on the market, while we will be able to expand our penetration in their area of the country.
“So far the results have been a significant success and, with a number of major construction projects now taking place in the South West, as well as some in South Wales, we couldn’t have made these changes at a better time.”
