BTE Plant Sales, a leading dealer of Kubota UK construction equipment, has expanded its operations with the opening of a new depot in Leeds.
The location of the new depot was chosen as a strategic move to allow BTE Plant Sales to further support its M62 corridor clients, covering an approximate area from Leicester to Leeds. The company also plans to expand its customer base, with Leeds being an ideal location to target potential business across the Yorkshire region.
Following the recent purchase of a Kubota U55-4 by Harborough Hire, the company has announced that it will be donating the first 12 months rental income to Sparks, a leading children’s charity.

The rental will result in an estimated £10,000 plus being donated to the charity that is dedicated to medical research into a range of conditions affecting babies, children and mums-to-be.

Traction Plant and Tool Hire in Stafford has recently bolstered its fleet of mini excavators, with the purchase of a Kubota KX080-3 from Leicester based BTE Plant Sales.

In particular, the company found that customers wanted a larger mini-excavator that also offered an arm with a longer reach. After discussions to understand the requirements of the machine, BTE Plant Sales recommended a Kubota KX080-3, due to its reliability and reputation within the construction industry.
