Oliver Beekes southern area dealer manager
Oliver is clearly passionate about farming and machinery. He graduated from Harper Adams University with a degree in agricultural machinery, and with time spent with another manufacturer, he brings with him considerable experience as a product specialist and, latterly from his most recent role, as a territory manager.
"I'm looking forward to being challenged with continual dealer development and brand-building, to introduce Kubota to the wider farming community," said Oliver. "Kubota has a tremendous presence in ground care and construction - and I'd like to see that replicated in agriculture, and be part of that success story."
"There is growing demand from the industry for Kubota tractors and machinery, and aspiration from the company to be a major player in these markets - it's a great time to be on this journey," he said.
Commenting on the appointment, agricultural and ground care sales manager Tim Yates said: "This is a great opportunity to continue building on the growth already achieved in both agricultural and ground care markets across the south of England."
"With recent expansion of our dealer network, and many new products coming to market to enhance a very modern equipment portfolio, we're in a great position to deliver growth for Kubota and our partners."
Kubota has been a leading manufacturer of agricultural, turf and construction equipment and Industrial Engines since 1890. With world Headquarters in Osaka Japan, and offices in more than 120 countries, and with over 41,000 employees throughout North America, Europe and
Asia, Kubota achieved revenues in 2020 of $17.3 billion. Although agricultural equipment is Kubota's primary line of products, Kubota also produces a diverse portfolio of other products including city wide water filtration systems, irrigation, piping, roofing, housing and large underground valves.
Our mission, "For Earth, For Life," speaks of our commitment to the preservation of the Earth's natural environment while aiding the production of food and water supplies that are vital to societal needs as our world population continues to grow. That mission is realized each time a Kubota tractor harvests the land to produce life-sustaining food or our construction equipment excavates to transport water resources or provide shelter.
