Market leading manufacturer of high-performance construction machinery solutions, Kubota UK, has announced a new major and strategic appointment. Industry experienced and well-known, Rob White has joined the company as its new Divisional Manager, Construction, for the UK and Ireland.
"I'm really pleased to be joining Kubota and heading up the Construction Division", says Rob. "The product range has a fantastic reputation for quality and reliability, and even though Kubota leads the mini-excavator market in the UK and Ireland, there is still a huge opportunity for further growth."
Rob started his journey in construction at JCB in 1996, where he was immediately involved in mini-excavators as a product specialist and then went on to hold senior sales and marketing positions. Now, with more than 25 years' experience in the construction and groundcare industries, the new Division Manager is looking to use his extensive knowledge of the UK and Ireland markets to the benefit of Kubota.
"I am looking forward to working with my team, our customers, and the fantastic Kubota dealer network as we continue to deliver growth for mini-excavators, tracked dumpers and compact loaders.
"There are exciting times ahead as we look to launch new technologies into the market, all of which will be focused on providing industry-specific solutions."
The appointment comes as Kubota UK celebrates 25-years at the front of the mini-excavator industry in the UK and Ireland. Activities to highlight the milestone are well underway, with more being announced throughout the year.
