Customer Announcement

We are delighted to announce that Harper Plant are joining forces with Lister Wilder, combining the strengths of two very established companies within the Kubota dealer network.

Andy Harper explained “This move allows us to look after our customer base within the supportive structure of Lister Wilder…something that has big benefits for everyone involved” before adding “Both companies feel that we have the same shared family values and dedication to looking after and understanding the Construction Industry customers and their needs, which would lead to a good merger of companies.”

The move means that Lister Wilder increase our coverage across Central Southern England…with six retail Kubota centres and just under two hundred people in the team. This means there is more support on hand, there will be access to more stock and the positive gains when you combine the best bits of two well established companies in the Kubota dealer network.

Charlie King (MD of Lister Wilder) explained “We have three pillars to our business – the Agricultural, Groundcare and Construction divisions…all of which benefit from shared resources whilst retaining their own identity and specialist teams within them”.

He continued “The operation at Salisbury will be a Kubota centre that continues to focus on Construction machinery. Its clear that Andy has built something he and the team should be very proud of, and we will be working together to ensure everyone has a very bright future with ourselves and Kubota.”

Please do get in touch with us if you have any questions about this news and we hope you share the excitement for the future of both us and Harper Plant Hire.
