Bobcat has announced changes in the company's dealer network for South West England in the UK. TVE Hire & Sales Ltd (TVE), the authorised Bobcat dealer based in Abingdon in Oxfordshire, has been awarded an expanded territory. With the addition of the counties of Wiltshire and Gloucestershire to its current area, TVE will now be responsible for customers in seven counties, including Oxfordshire, Berkshire, Buckinghamshire, Hampshire and the Isle of Wight. John Christofides, regional sales director, UK/Ireland, Nordics and Baltics for Bobcat EMEA, says the decision follows "the excellent results delivered by TVE in its first three years as a Bobcat dealer, with market share increases of up to 15% in its area". TVE has also taken on a caretaker role providing continuity for sales, service and parts for new and existing Bobcat products in the counties of Somerset, Dorset, Devon and Cornwall, in anticipation of new announcements to be made by Bobcat regarding these counties. In its newly expanded territory and in its temporary caretaker role, TVE is responsible for sales and service of the market-leading range of Bobcat skid-steer, compact track and all-wheel steer loaders, mini-excavators, telehandlers and attachments in the construction, agriculture, rental, landscaping and industrial markets. Mat Jones, TVE sales manager, says: "We are very gratified that our performance since we became a Bobcat dealer has been rewarded with an expanded territory for sales, service and parts for all of the Bobcat range. Customers, new and old, in Somerset, Dorset, Devon and Cornwall can also be assured of full continuity in Bobcat service in our caretaker role for these counties." Bobcat has meanwhile appointed Cheltenham-based TVE Hire & Sales Ltd as the authorised dealer for the Bobcat range of telescopic loaders for the agricultural market in Gloucestershire.
