MARKHAM, ON, March 22, 2018 /CNW Telbec/ - Nearly two years after its parent company, Kubota Corporation, acquired the five divisions of Great Plains Manufacturing Inc., including several facilities in Kansas, Kubota Canada Ltd. (KCL) is pleased to announce it has taken over the distribution of Great Plains equipment from La Coop fédérée for Quebec and Atlantic Canada.
As it did with Land Pride in 2017, KCL is thrilled to now be able to offer innovative, durable and high-performance Great Plains equipment to farmers across Quebec and Atlantic Canada at their local Kubota dealerships.
"Everything we've done over the past years has been geared towards customer satisfaction and brand loyalty," said Bob Hickey, President of KCL. "That's what drove us to not only expand our product line through acquisitions such as Great Plains Manufacturing, but also invest in our distribution network, so that current and potential clients could access an expanded range of high-quality products when the time came to invest in their farm equipment."
KCL constantly strives to meet farmers' needs and the addition of Great Plains equipment to its offering in Quebec and Atlantic Canada is yet another step in that direction. Through its range of user-friendly and reliable models, as well as a strong dealership network operating in many communities across Canada, KCL continues to strengthen its position in a highly competitive market. Thanks to its promotional initiatives and diverse financing methods, along with the fact that it belongs to one of the few companies in the agricultural sector headquartered in Canada, the Kubota and Great Plains brands are establishing themselves as the top choice in the hearts and minds of Canadians.
