Becoming a Key Player in the Farm Equipment Market
Tuesday, September 13 2016
Woodstock (Ontario), September 13, 2016 – As part of the 23rd edition of Canada’s Outdoor Farm Show (COFS) in Woodstock (Ontario), Kubota Canada Ltd. (KCL) will once again open its permanent event centre to the public from September 13-15, 2016. Throughout this period, thousands of COFS attendees will finally have the opportunity to test-drive Kubota’s renowned M7, the latest addition to its line of high-powered tractors. They will also discover the new M4 Narrow as well as Kubota’s new 2016 product line. The M4 Narrow is a tractor characterized by its exceptional versatility, a quality required in narrow spaces like orchards or vineyards or in snow removal operations. Visitors will therefore witness why Kubota is becoming a key player among farmers, landscapers and contractors, who will appreciate its products’ unparalleled power, durability and reliability.
“Reliable, comfortable and rugged, the M7’s design is based on our corporate philosophy of producing high-performance and user-friendly farming equipment that meets our clients’ needs, specifically within the agricultural sector,” said Bob Hickey, President of Kubota Canada Ltd. “We are proud of our strong reputation within our industry, and we constantly strive to provide top-quality tractors and farming equipment to our dealers and their customers, thereby enabling them to complete their field work with more ease.”
When arriving at Kubota’s event centre, easily recognizable by the company’s emblematic orange cube topping the centre’s entrance, visitors will have access to farm equipments bearing Kubota’s markings. They will also get to discover a wide array of Kverneland equipments, as well as Great Plain Manufacturing’s Landpride series. A leader in farm equipments compatible with Kubota’s vast array of utility tractors, Great Plain Manufacturing joined the Kubota family last May.
“After acquiring the Kverneland Group Canada in 2014, Kubota further expanded in 2016 as part of its quest to lead Canada’s agricultural market,” said Carl Heinlein, General Manager, Sales and Marketing at Kubota Canada Ltd. “Acquiring Great Plains Manufacturing Inc. enables us to increase our ability to offer high-quality products to our clients, thereby continuing our strategic expansion in new markets.”
During the three-day event, COFS participants will have an opportunity to not only try out Kubota’s latest models, but also attend demonstrations showcasing Kverneland and Kubota mower conditioners. Moreover, representatives will be on site to talk about product quality and reliability, as well as customer service and financing details.
