We have adapted and continued to grow rapidly during the past year to ensure we supply and support British Farmers who are feeding the nation with the challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic.
‘’We are doing everything we can to support the industry during these difficult times. We have been fortunate to have seen a 35% increase in sales in 2020 and that has allowed us to be able to invest substantially back into the industry to provide the best innovation, support, and service to our customers.’’ Explains Robbie Polson, our Ktwo Managing Director.
We purchased Warwick Trailers in 2019 to increase the size of our production facilities to nearly 80,000 square foot, giving us the space to produce more muck spreaders and to be able to offer a complete range of trailers across the agricultural industry.
‘’The purchase of the Warwick Trailers was a significant milestone for us and has helped us to continue to grow even with the difficulties of the pandemic,’’ continues Robbie, ‘’We have continued to recruit and have grown to a team of nearly 70 staff.‘’
We recently won Leading Innovators in Agricultural Machinery 2020 in BUILD Magazine’s 2020 Construction & Engineering Awards which is a testament to our product innovation this year where we improved our spreader range by redesigning our Ktwo Evo and Ktwo Bio spreaders to maximise outputs and increase efficiency.
We have invested in our product design and have increased our design engineering team by three in the last year alone. We are continuing to focus on product innovation based on customer feedback and the most up-to-date technology.
Along with our new Design Engineers, we have further invested in our support team with service and back up Engineers out on the road for customers.
Will Green from Robinson Contract Services has worked closely with us at Ktwo for many years and praises the team for our customer support relationship: ‘’I would recommend Ktwo both for their machines and as a company – we have always had excellent backup from the Ktwo team regardless of whether this has been for parts, advice, or joint head-scratching when problems have arisen.’’
We also launched a campaign called Spread The Load to raise awareness of mental health in farming and to provide support to those who need it this year. We have a dedicated page on our website for farmers and their families to find advice during difficult times which you can view here: www.ktwo.co.uk/spreadtheload/
We will keep doing all we can as a British manufacturer to invest in our people and the industry during these challenging times.
