Investment in technical personnel continues at KUHN Farm Machinery, with the latest recruits to the company’s regionally deployed product support team including Sam Murphy and Tom Hume.

Sam Murphy will cover the South and South West of England from his base in Somerset. He is an Agricultural Engineering graduate of Harper Adams University and has previous experience working in product support for CNH Industrial and as a machinery operator with Grosvenor Farms Ltd.

Tom Hume will provide product support for KUHN across Scotland. After serving an apprenticeship with a leading AGCO tractor dealership, he has gained six years’ experience as an agricultural engineer with the company. This period was punctuated by a two-year sabbatical during which he worked as a service engineer in Antarctica.

These appointments maintain KUHN’s expanded product support function that has now been in existence for over a decade and complements the ongoing investment that the company is making in technical personnel.

“We’re continually building on our commitment to deliver the very best engineering back-up to our customers,” explains Siân Pritchard, Managing Director of KUHN UK. “Our investment in people mirrors our success in increasing sales and growing market share in priority product areas.

“Having skilled and dedicated people on the ground is an important part of building strong relationships with our dealer network and is becoming an important differentiator for the business. It’s a crucial factor in ensuring that we provide a more complete, efficient and thorough service to our UK customers and, as a result, are able to push UK sales figures to new heights.”
