Bumper start to 2017 for GGM Groundscare and Kubota

2017 is set to be an exciting year for GGM Groundscare and Kubota as the two leading groundcare machinery specialists celebrate a 40 year landmark working in partnership together and the announcement that GGM is further expanding its operations with the orange liveried manufacturer in the North West.

Over the last 40 years, the relationship between the specialist machinery dealer and the market leading Japanese manufacturer has gone from strength to strength. This has been based on GGM’s commitment to provide its customers across the North West and Yorkshire with high performance solutions.

As part of the ongoing evolution of this partnership between two of the leading players in the sector, GGM can now proudly announce that following Kubota’s decision to part company with F R Sharrocks, that GGM have been given the opportunity to increase its Kubota area coverage, expanding operations across the North West region including: Greater Manchester, Merseyside, West Lancashire and Cheshire. GGM will take control of this new area from 3rd January 2017.

Commenting on the 40 year partnership and this latest expansion announcement, current Managing Director at GGM, Chris Gibson (Michael Gibson’s son) said: “My father was always looking for new ideas, so when he purchased the business in 1976, it’s not surprising that he soon spotted a new product that would revolutionise the way horticultural growers worked in Glass houses, namely the Kubota Compact Tractor. After discussions with John Croft, the Sales Agent for Kubota at the time, he became the first dealer to sign up and the compact tractor business in the UK was born.

To mark the 40 year milestone, GGM and Kubota are trying to find the oldest Kubota that originated from Gibson’s Garden Machinery. If you have a ‘vintage’ Kubota then please contact our sales team
