Bobcat has announced important changes in the company’s dealer network for south-west England.
TVE Hire & Sales Ltd (TVE), the authorised Bobcat dealer based in Abingdon in Oxfordshire, has been awarded an expanded territory. With the addition of the counties of Wiltshire and Gloucestershire to its current area, TVE will now be responsible for customers in seven counties, including Oxfordshire, Berkshire, Buckinghamshire, Hampshire and the Isle of Wight.
John Christofides, regional sales director, UK/Ireland, Nordics and Baltics for Bobcat EMEA, said, “Following the excellent results delivered by TVE in its first three years as a Bobcat dealer, with market share increases of up to 15% in its area, we are delighted to recognise this with the addition of Wiltshire and Gloucestershire to its existing area.”
TVE has also taken on a caretaker role providing continuity for sales, service and parts for new and existing Bobcat products in the counties of Somerset, Dorset, Devon and Cornwall, in anticipation of new announcements to be made by Bobcat regarding these counties.
Mat Jones, sales manager at TVE Hire & Sales Ltd, said, “We are very gratified that our performance since we became a Bobcat dealer has been rewarded with an expanded territory for sales, service and parts for all of the Bobcat range. Customers new and old in Somerset, Dorset, Devon and Cornwall can also be assured of full continuity in Bobcat service in our caretaker role for these counties.”
In addition, Bobcat, as part of the company’s mission to expand its presence in the agricultural sector, has appointed Cheltenham-based JJ Farm Services Ltd as the authorised Dealer for their range of telescopic loaders for the agricultural market in Gloucestershire.
Ewen Gilchrist, network development manager UK & Nordics for Doosan Bobcat EMEA, said, “I would like to welcome JJ Farm Services to the fold. We look forward to many years of working together with them in the agricultural market.”
