Kubota UK is pleased to announce that Rob Fox, who has worked in the company's service and aftersales team for the last 11 years, has taken up a new position in the company's commercial team after being promoted to product manager for Kubota's Agricultural division.
The investment in Kubota's agricultural team forms part of the company's long-term strategy to expand into the larger-horsepower tractor market, increasing its market coverage and share position.
In his new sales orientated role, Rob is responsible for working with and supporting Kubota's dealer network and its sales and marketing teams. This includes maintaining effective relationships with Kubota's dealer and end-user customers and providing all the technical product and training support across the company's agricultural product range, including its M Series, MGX-II and M7001 Series tractors.
Rob Edwards, business development manager for Kubota Agriculture, commented: "There's no doubt that the launch of our M7001 Series Tractor and the opening of Kubota Farm Machinery - our new production facility in Northern France - represent a significant investment for our business. It's an exciting time at Kubota as we move into the large scale farming market.
"The addition of Rob Fox further strengthens our team. He has extensive knowledge and experience in the agricultural industry and I wish him every success in his role."
Rob Fox joined Kubota in 2004 after qualifying with a HND in Agricultural Engineering from Harper Adams University and spending the first seven years of his working life in the service team of a New Holland dealer. At Kubota, Rob has worked his way up through the company's Service division, playing a significant role helping in the development of the company's customer satisfaction survey and tailoring service training packages for its dealer network.
