North Wales dealer expansion into agriculture

  • Kubota (UK) Ltd is pleased to announce that Major Owen Ltd is expanding into the agricultural sector with higher power M-series tractors to complement its existing groundcare business

Broadening its product range is a logical step for the north Wales-based dealership, as it looks to support the agricultural sector with a full range of Kubota M-series tractors. Those additional models will include M6001 Utility, M6002 and M7003 models spanning 104-175hp, plus corresponding LK tractor-loader models and R0 pivot steer loaders.

“Major Owen’s business development continues to reinforce Kubota’s commitment to its customers and the markets,” explained Henry Bredin, general manager of Kubota (UK)’s agricultural and groundcare machinery division. “This is a dealer that already has considerable M-series tractor experience, having delivered on sales, service and support with lower powered M4 and M5 models across a diverse customer base. Larger tractors are a natural and logical progression.”

As a supplier of Kubota tractors and construction equipment alongside high-quality professional groundcare machinery, Major Owen has a long-standing relationship with Kubota that dates back to the early 1980’s. Based in Penrhyndeudraeth on the edge of the Snowdonia National Park, Major Owen will be within reach to agricultural customers across north Wales and Anglesey.

Well-established in meeting the needs of construction, local authority, estate management, and sports turf sectors, this family-owned and run dealership employs a team of over 25 staff, and is managed by Andy Jones.

“Over the last couple of years, we’ve seen a surge of interest from the farming community looking for more powerful tractors,” explained Andy Jones, managing director of Major Owen. “So, we took the decision to expand the business to be able to provide the tractors, warranty, service and support that we need for this exciting new chapter for Major Owen.”

“Many of our staff already have experience and knowledge of the smaller M-series tractors,” said Andy. “We’re in the process of increasing our sales, service and workshop teams to support new and existing customers, as we expand our portfolio with Kubota’s higher horsepower tractors.”

“Our experience has shown how robust and reliable the smaller M-series tractors have been, and we’ve every confidence that the higher-powered models will deliver the same levels of Japanese reliability, while providing a competitive fixed cost of ownership for customers,” he said.

“We already have a strong and knowledgeable team that is capable of delivering first class customer service and support with professional groundcare and construction machinery,” said Andy Jones. “And we’re confident of replicating that same level of support across the agricultural industry.”
