Commenting on his appointment, White said, “I’m really pleased to be joining Kubota and heading up the Construction Division. The product range has a fantastic reputation for quality and reliability, and even though Kubota leads the mini-excavator market in the UK and Ireland, there is still a huge opportunity for further growth.”

“I am looking forward to working with my team, our customers, and the fantastic Kubota dealer network as we continue to deliver growth for mini-excavators, tracked dumpers and compact loaders.
