Kubota announce new distributor for Scotland
Mitchell Powersystems to supply Kubota’s full range of engine solutions north of the border
KUBOTA Engines have announced a new strategic partnership with engine and transmission specialists Mitchell Powersystems. The agreement will establish Mitchell Powersystems as the official national distributor of Kubota engines in Scotland.
The company will supply Kubota’s current (and future) full range of oil- and water-cooled diesel and dual-fuel engine solutions, as well as delivering full customer care support services, including the distribution of spare parts to regional engine dealers, OEMs and end-user customers across a wide range of industry sectors.
Daniel Grant, business development manager for Kubota’s Engines Division, commented: ‘This is a major investment programme by both parties specifically designed to increase Kubota’s market share and drive brand awareness in Scotland across a number of critical market sectors, including construction equipment, power generation, agriculture and materials handling.
‘This partnership is all about strengthening our service offering and proposition across Scotland by joining forces with one of the most reputable engine specialists in the country.’
Founded in 1953, Mitchell Powersystems, part of the Turner Group of Companies, distribute and support a number of premium engine brands for various sectors as well as transmissions for on- and off-highway applications. The company is a one-stop shop for engine sales and service, employing a team of highly skilled workshop and field service engineers, backed up by aftersales support.
Mr Grant (far left of photo) said: ‘Mitchell Powersystems have earned an enviable reputation in the diesel-powered equipment market, particularly in the 56kW to 2,200kW industrial engines market. By working in partnership with Kubota and becoming the national distributor for Scotland, it opens up new market possibilities for them in the sub-56kW power category with a leading brand.
‘This is an exciting opportunity for both businesses to take advantage of and target significant growth in Scotland with an extremely strong proposition for OEMs to consider.’
Allan Mitchell (far right of photo), general manager of Mitchell Powersystems Glasgow, added: ‘Working in partnership with Kubota allows us to increase our product and service offering and apply our engines expertise into new market sectors.
‘The sub-56kW engine market is an untapped area for Mitchell Powersystems, offering us increased opportunities to diversify into new sectors and grow our market share by working in partnership with the world leader in this power category. We are delighted to be launching this landmark agreement with Kubota and look forward to strengthening this relationship in the future.’
Jem Engines – Kubota’s previous engine dealer for Scotland – will continue to represent the company under the guidance and support of Mitchell Powersystems.
