UK JCB distributor - Gunn JCB has set up a new company ‘Midlands JCB’ to cover key areas of the English midlands region.
The new company, which was registered last July, will take over three Gunn locations - Smethwick, Stoke-on-Trent, and Hereford and operate as a standalone operation as the primary JCB construction dealer for the West Midlands, Warwickshire, Staffordshire, Herefordshire, and Worcestershire.
The business will be managed by former JCB employees David Hill as managing director and Alistair Reekie as sales director. All existing Gunn JCB staff from the three depots have been transferred to Midlands JCB and will be joined by new recruits to strengthen the team.
David Hill said: "We are thrilled to begin operations as Midlands JCB and build on the great work of Gunn JCB, while focusing on new growth opportunities in this very important region. We look forward to working with new and existing customers to provide exceptional products and service, focusing on outstanding local support.”
Alistair Reekie added: "We want to assure our customers that this change will not affect the quality of service they receive from their local JCB dealer, who will continue to receive exceptional service from our team.”
