Officially opened by a delegation from Kubota and Broekman Logistics on April 14, the warehouse features an optimised layout of logistics and assembly operations, which the company’s say will shorten lead times and facilitate future growth for Kubota.

The storage, final assembly and outbound logistics aspects of the facility will be managed by Broekman Logistics, who will also handle the Complete Knocked Down (CKD) of production parts from Weert to Kubota’s production plant in Zweibrucken (D).

Toshitaka Matsuo, president of Kubota Baumaschinen, said, “The move to the new distribution centre in Weert is a big step forward for Kubota and symbolises our partnership with Broekman Logistics.

“This expansion represents a significant investment of business activities and will not only help us further improve our current range of services, but also increase the satisfaction of dealers, distributors and ultimately, end customers.”

The opening of the warehouse is the latest collaboration between Kubota and Broekman Logistics, which initially started in 2006. Since then the respective companies have shared centres in both Born and Sittard, before the decision was made in 2019 to develop the new location in Weert.

Rik Pek, managing director, Broekman Logistics, said, “The relationship with Kubota is very dear to us as a company, but also to me personally. After consecutive years of growth, it was time to further intensify our cooperation and provide Kubota with a state-of-the-art warehouse.

“I have been experiencing for years how well the values of our companies match. We are both very entrepreneurial, pay attention to people and value long-term relationships. We are very enthusiastic about the current cooperation with Kubota and look forward to continuing this in Weert.”
