Kubota UK Engine Division has entered into a strategic partnership with Machinery OY, based in Vantaa, that will see the Finnish business represent Kubota’s complete range of oil and water cooled diesel and dual fuel engines throughout Finland.
Established in 1911, Machinery OY is Finland’s largest supplier of new machine tools to the engineering and construction industry. In addition to the distribution of Kubota engines, the family run business will also provide full customer support services and spare parts to end users, dealers and Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs) across a range of industry sectors.
Daniel Grant, Business Development Manager for Kubota UK’s Engines Division, said: “We are very excited to be working with Machinery OY, a new relationship that brings together two leading players in the industrial engine market. With the ever expanding Kubota Engine portfolio, we recognise the strength and stability of the service offering and aftersales support the new business partnership can provide and believe our product and service expectations will complement their existing premium brands and company ethos.
“With the substantial changes coming into force in 2019 with EU Stage V, it’s vitally important that we utilise the highest levels of expertise and knowledge. The dedicated team at Machinery OY has vast experience with Non Road Mobile Machinery (NRMM) engines, providing an excellent platform for Kubota to grow in sales, technical support and aftersales service throughout Finland.”
Kubota’s latest announcement means that the company has concluded its relationship with Koneskesko in Finland.
Arto Orjo, Sales Manager at Machinery OY, commented: “This is the start of a long and fruitful relationship between Kubota and Machinery OY. There is a lot to learn, develop and expand throughout Finland and we’re very happy to be working with such a well respected engine manufacturer like Kubota to achieve this. Our development programme will provide the necessary product and technical knowledge to offer Finland nothing short of customer service excellence.”
