New Full-Line Kubota Tractor and Groundcare Equipment Dealer to cover Mid & South Wales
Well-known agricultural and horticultural machinery dealer, Ted Hopkins Ltd, has been appointed to look after sales and service requirements for the entire range of Kubota tractors and groundcare equipment throughout mid and south Wales.
Operating from head office premises at St Brides Wentloog, near Newport, and a branch office at the Brecon Enterprise Park, Brecon, Ted Hopkins Ltd has taken on responsibility for the demonstration, sale and after-sale support of Kubota wheeled tractors from 14hp to 105hp, together with the range of matching Kubota tractor attachments; petrol and diesel ride-on front and mid mowers for commercial and domestic applications; and the RTV900 all-terrain diesel utility vehicle, purpose-designed for on and off road load and personnel movement.
Ted Hopkins' customer base for Kubota tractors, mowers and all-terrain vehicles in mid and south Wales includes home and estate owners, golf clubs, sports stadiums, farmers, nurserymen and growers, landscapers, arborists, sportsground contractors and public authorities, amongst others.
Owned and managed by Ted Hopkins in partnership with his son, Chris, the firm holds a strong reputation for the high levels of pre- and after-sale support it provides to domestic and commercial customers. In addition to the sale of new and pre-owned tractors and machinery, Ted Hopkins Ltd also runs a successful division hiring out equipment for short or extended periods to professional users such as farmers and growers, public authorities, golf and sports clubs and landscapers.
"Our business was built around customer service and this remains the number one priority following our appointment as a full-line Kubota tractor and groundcare dealer," commented Chris Hopkins. "Customers can have confidence in the fact that our trained staff are well-versed in providing advice, assistance and support for every requirement, from the initial demonstration through to the purchase or hire of a machine, its regular maintenance schedules and the provision of replacement wearing parts, as and when necessary.
"We have four vehicles equipped for on-site service and repair calls, a 40-tonne lorry for larger tractor and equipment collections or deliveries and have just added a new purpose-designed 7.5 tonne lorry to our fleet. The latter will be used exclusively for demonstrations and deliveries of Kubota compact tractors and associated groundcare machines."
David Roberts, sales and marketing manager, Kubota (U. K.) Limited, said that the appointment of Ted Hopkins Ltd as dealer for mid and south Wales was an important step for Kubota. "Ted and Chris Hopkins have built a loyal customer following over the years based on the provision of first-class all-round customer support. We are confident that past, present and future Kubota customers and users throughout their area are in very good hands."
