Second depot opens to increase sales

  • Kubota (UK) Ltd is pleased to announce that Hosplant has opened a second depot to further improve access to the Kubota products it sells within its Essex, Suffolk and Norfolk sales areas

With a new depot located at Wattisfield near Diss, some 45 miles north of Hosplant’s HQ at Peldon, Essex, the firm is now better placed to deliver on sales, service, parts and aftercare, across the northern part of its geographical sales area.

“We cover a good stretch of countryside from Essex up through Suffolk and into Norfolk, and until recently, it was all serviced through our Peldon, Colchester depot,” explains service director and co-owner Adrian Mays. “As we strive to deliver a better and more efficient service for new and existing customers, we really needed to develop a much more local ethos for our business.”

As a dealer for Kubota’s agricultural tractor and implement ranges, plus construction equipment, Hosplant says its Wattisfield depot will enable the business to operate more efficiently. While the site provides workshop facilities, parts counter and equipment sales for agricultural and construction machinery, it also operates with mobile engineers and is geared-up to provide a parts delivery service.

“We’re far better placed to react much more quickly to call-outs, and we can provide a more local supply of parts for customers in Suffolk and Norfolk, who visit the Wattisfield dealership,” says Adrian. “While adding a second depot is a positive step forward for Hosplant and Kubota, it will be much more beneficial for our customers.”

Henry Bredin, general manager of Kubota (UK)’s Agricultural and Groundcare Machinery Division also sees the additional depot as a positive step forward. “Hosplant’s additional depot continues to strengthen Kubota’s commitment to its customers and the markets in which our business operates,” he says. “This strategic expansion sees the dealership continue to develop its partnership with Kubota, as it actively supports a wider customer base in both agricultural and construction sectors.”
