EXTENDED KUHN COVERAGE IN SOMERSET FOLLOWING HUNT FOREST ACQUISITION OF SMART AG SERVICES
Sales, servicing and spare parts back-up for KUHN equipment will now be available at the Inwood Farm depot at Nether Stowey, Bridgwater, following the agreement for Hunt Forest Group to acquire Smart Ag Services Ltd.
Hunt Forest, a leading John Deere dealership, has been a major supplier of KUHN Farm Machinery’s full agricultural and amenity ranges since the merger of R. Hunt Ltd and New Forest Farm Machinery in 2018. This latest acquisition by Hunt Forest Group allows extended coverage for the KUHN offering in Somerset.
“Having now fully completed the acquisition of Smart Ag Services, we are delighted to be able to further our partnership with KUHN into our expanded area,” comments Paul Burnett, Business Development Director at Hunt Forest Group.
“The drive and enthusiasm shown by KUHN and its employees makes them a perfect partner for us. As a John Deere dealer, quality and reliability, good residual value, plus high end technology, are things we have become accustomed to and, with KUHN, we find a lot of commonality which forms the basis of an excellent relationship.
“Customers can benefit from a full suite of machines that help achieve more, in a cost-effective way, supported by a full team of experienced people both in our business and at manufacturer level. I am confident the Nether Stowey team, coupled with the ethics of Hunt Forest Group, will go from strength to strength and help us grow the KUHN business together in the area.”
Siân Pritchard, Managing Director of KUHN UK adds: “We’re delighted to be able to make the KUHN brand more accessible to customers in Somerset and to strengthen our relationship with Hunt Forest Group. Hunt Forest’s expertise and professional approach to sales and aftersales support in the farming and groundcare sectors is highly compatible with that of KUHN UK.”
