Jarvie Plant has announced the growth of its Kubota fleet, with the purchase of a brand-new KX085-5 8.5 tonne excavator.

One of the leading independent hire companies in Scotland, Jarvie Plant has eight depots across the country - as well an English operation based in Manchester. Jarvie has heavily invested in Kubota and has now bought 100 machines from leading Scottish dealer HRN over the last three years, increasing its fleet to 200+ machines.

The KX085-5 is the first to be delivered in Scotland, following the product’s launch earlier this year. It is also the 100th piece of equipment purchased by Jarvie from HRN, which the companies celebrated at the recent Jarvie Plant open day at its Nairn depot in August. 

Speaking of the landmark acquisition, David Jarvie said: “This investment is a great step forward for Jarvie Plant. The new equipment helps us to continue offering our client machines that meet their needs and offers them time and labour savings. We have a long history with HRN and Kubota that we are proud to say continues past this 100th milestone. We’re thrilled to have taken delivery of the first KX085-5 in Scotland; it’s a seriously impressive machine and one we know our customers will appreciate.”

While Andy Wilson, construction account manager at HRN added: “It’s great to see Jarvie Plant opening another new depot to support their customers in the North of Scotland.

"Not only was it great to have a depot launch, it was also great to showcase their brand new Kubota KX085-5. This was the first one to be displayed in Scotland, and this certainly did make the day a little more special. Myself and Martin Norry from Kubota UK were happy to attend and support our loyal customer on the day”.
