Major Owen ltd has renewed its partnership with Snowdonia National Park, recently supplying the authority with five new Kubota excavators.

Based in Gwynedd, the Major Owen Kubota dealership offers a large range of machinery and equipment, alongside service and repair facilities, and the firm has on-going relationships throughout the local area - including with the National Park Authority.

Five Kubota excavators were purchased as part of the park’s investment, comprising two U10-3 micro excavators, two KX019-4 mini-excavators and one KX042-4 model, in addition to a pair of KC70 track dumpers. This latest purchase represents the third such order of Kubota excavators by the National Park Authority in recent years, following subsequent purchases in 2008 and 2013.

“With lots of rugged landscape to maintain all year round, Snowdonia National Park needs robust machinery that can simply get the job done in the toughest conditions, making Kubota the perfect choice to meet the demands of any application.” said Malcolm Barnett, construction sales manager at Major Owen.

While Hywel Jones, access projects officer at Snowdonia National Park Authority, added: “Snowdonia National Park attracts visitors from all over the world, so keeping over 800 square miles of park space in the best condition for them to enjoy is paramount.

"It is important that we utilise quality equipment to ensure the high standard of work people expect in Snowdonia is delivered for generations to come. In addition, the aftercare service provided by Major Owen is an important factor in our maintenance programme and we’re excited to continue working closely with the dealership moving forward.”
