Bobcat has announced 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 per cent 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.
In its newly expanded territory and in its temporary caretaker role, TVE is responsible for sales and service of the market-leading range of Bobcat skid-steer, compact track and all-wheel steer loaders, mini-excavators, telehandlers and attachments in the construction, agriculture, rental, landscaping and industrial markets.
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.”
JJ Farm Services now responsible for Bobcat Telescopic Loaders for the agricultural market in Gloucestershire
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 the Bobcat range of telescopic loaders for the agricultural market in Gloucestershire.
Ewen Gilchrist, Network Development Manager UK & Nordics for Doosan Bobcat EMEA, said: “We have been very impressed with the results produced in its existing area by TVE over the last three years, so adding Wiltshire and Gloucestershire to their territory was an easy and logical decision. Customers in the rest of the South West can be assured of the best support from the company during its period as caretaker for their area. I would also like to welcome JJ Farm Services to the fold. We look forward to many years of working together with JJ Farm Services in the agricultural market.”
Like all other Bobcat dealers in the UK, TVE Hire & Sales and JJ Farm Services have extended Bobcat’s Retail Financing solutions to include the new ‘Work Now, Pay Later’ campaign providing a 180-day deferment for the first finance payment, to underpin the purchase of new Bobcat loaders, mini-excavators and rigid frame telehandlers.
