News Item: Kubota Celebrates 25 Years as Number 1 Mini Excavator Manufacturer

Kubota UK is celebrating 25-years as The UK & Republic of Ireland's number one supplier of mini-excavators to the construction industry. The famous eye-catching orange livery brand has announced a 12-month, activity campaign throughout 2022 to celebrate the milestone.

"It's an honour to celebrate any milestone, but 25-years as a leader in The UK & Republic of Ireland's construction industry, which is a vitally important sector of UK & ROI's overall economy is especially rewarding," says, Geoff Smith, Dealer Manager, Construction Department, Kubota UK. "A lot of hard work has gone in to securing this position and success wouldn't be possible without four vital components; the excellent and tireless Kubota UK team, our vital dealership network, who are the lifeblood of the industry, our incredibly loyal customer base and of course, the innovative and unique Kubota engine technologies and machinery."

A host of activity is already planned, including a 'Kubota Challenge' due to launch later this year, that will see Kubota operators show off their skills to showcase the abilities of both driver and machine.

Kubota is also utilising its strong supply network to run charity events throughout the year that will see multiple local communities benefit from the funds raised. The excavator supplier has also agreed to match a percentage of the total funds raised to help the industry charity, The Lighthouse Club.

Industry roundtables, testimonials from the Kubota network and customers, and a kids design competition, are just a few of the activities it has planned during the year-long campaign. 

"We would like all of our activity this year to reflect on just how grateful we are to be in this position as the construction industry's trusted, go-to supplier for mini-excavators.

It's not just a celebration about our accolade, it's a celebration of the industry as a whole and how integral it is to the country, from every local community project, to large infrastructure works."
