Celebrating the opening of our new Washington Depot

We are excited to share a significant milestone that we have achieved - the opening of our newest branch in Washington, Tyne and Wear! The decision to expand into the northeast reflects our ongoing commitment to broaden our service delivery and reach for our northern customers.

For over 70 years now, we have been a trusted name in the world of Agricultural and Construction Plant. And in this time, we have grown from strength to strength - both literally and figuratively! Expanding from our main office in Levens, South Cumbria, to branches in Skipton, North Yorkshire, and Chorley, Lancashire. The one constant that has remained the same is our drive to offer top-notch service and support to our customers.

To celebrate the opening of our new Washington branch, we are excited to welcome existing patrons and new faces alike to our open-day celebration. Joining us will be esteemed guests from Kubota, including Yasukazu Kamada - President of Kubota Holding Europe B.V., Naota Nishura - Vice President Sales & Marketing Business Unit CE Europe, and Rob White - Division Manager UK Construction Department. This event signifies our continued effort to strengthen the partnership between Kubota and P.V. Dobson, and our shared vision for the future.

Our new Washington branch boasts a comprehensive setup, including expansive workshop spaces, well-stocked parts and showroom areas, a consumables shop, and considerable yard space dedicated to the preparation of machinery. Guiding this new venture is Matthew Crawford, a seasoned professional from the construction machinery industry. With his support, we aim to better support our existing clientele, many of whom are third-generation customers, and attract new customers in need of quality plant.

Andrew Dobson, Managing Director of P.V. Dobson commented:
The customer is at the heart of what we do and we pride ourselves on our high level of customer service, individual attention, care, and quality products that we offer to our customers.

From our Sales team to our Aftermarket team, everyone plays an equal part in making sure that the most integral part of our business is looked after properly - the customer.

It is this shared commitment that serves as the driving force behind the company’s decision to establish a presence in the North East. Ensuring that new customers can experience P.V. Dobson’s unparalleled service standards and quality product offerings.

As proud partners of Kubota since 1992, a brand synonymous with reliability, credibility, and outstanding residual values, The Washington branch will focus on offering a full range of construction machinery including the full range of Kubota excavators. “Three words to describe Kubota are credible, reliable, and residual. They have been number one in Europe for the past 25 years and are renowned for their fantastic reliability and residual values,” Andrew Dobson remarks.
