Sales Administrator, Kubota UK
I joined Kubota as a Business Administration Apprentice in September 2016. I was very excited to be given this opportunity of learning with a large Company and being able to earn a salary at the same time in my first job.
Through my learning and development and the support and guidance from my colleagues and the company I was able to enhance my knowledge which has given me the experience to solve problems, help our customers independently and provide them with the best service I can. Some of the opportunities I have had during my short time with Kubota have included visiting one of our key shows (Saltex), operating some of our machinery, seeing products going through testing in our R&D function and spending time in each of the other departments to understand what they do and the interactions I have with them.
Through all of this I have continued my studies, which has proved difficult at times, and have recently passed my Apprenticeship and NVQ. I am now a fully operational Sales Administrator working within the Tractor and Ground care Division alongside all my colleagues.
Recently the Company have also commenced a major refurbishment programme across all areas which has now given everyone an added ‘boost’ as our working conditions are excellent.
It is a pleasure to work at KUK and with my colleagues.Joshua Wook, Sales Administrator, Kubota UK
Through the six-month internship, I was able to expand my knowledge and skills.
Service department Employee
Through the six-month internship, I was able to expand my knowledge and skills. In addition to detailed product knowledge, I also gained deeper insights into the work of the service and product management departments. Regular customer contact and demanding tasks with a high level of personal responsibility contributed greatly to making the internship a valuable preparation for a future career. Although I was the first Trainee at Kubota Germany, all those involved acted with openness, flexibility, high professionalism and constant willingness to optimize. The internship was an important experience and a great success for me!
Das Interessanteste an meinem Beruf als Gesamtmontageleiter ist, dass jeder Tag anders ist. Jeder Tag bringt neue Herausforderungen, unsere Maschinen auf die effizienteste Weise und mit der besten Qualität zu montieren, um unsere Kunden glücklich zu machen.
Manager Assembly Lines, Kverneland Group Soest
Das Interessanteste an meinem Beruf als Gesamtmontageleiter ist, dass jeder Tag anders ist. Jeder Tag bringt neue Herausforderungen, unsere Maschinen auf die effizienteste Weise und mit der besten Qualität zu montieren, um unsere Kunden glücklich zu machen. Die Möglichkeit sich selber weiter zu bilden, die netten Kollegen im gesamten Konzern und die Bandbreite der verschiedenen Tätigkeiten sind nur einige der Vorteile, die man hat, wenn man für Kubota / Kverneland arbeitet. Die Vision ein führender Anbieter für Agrarmaschinen zu sein ist großartig. In unserem Konzern haben wir das Knowhow und den Willen dieses Ziel zu erreichen. Im Jahr 2008 habe ich angefangen, als Monteur im Bereich Drilltechnik bei der Kverneland Group Soest zu arbeiten. Nach einem Jahr hatte ich die Chance mich über einen Techniker- Lehrgang weiterzubilden. 2010 musste ich die Arbeit bei der Kverneland Group unterbrechen, um meinen Grundwehrdienst zu leisten, aber es bestand kein Zweifel, dass ich hiernach wieder bei der KvG anfangen wollte. Die Techniker Qualifikation hat währenddessen in Teilzeit ca. 5 Jahre gedauert. Mit diesem neuen Wissen ausgestattet, begann ich mich im Werk um Kaizen Themen zu kümmern, sodass der nächste Schritt für mich das 5GEN Dojo in Osaka war. Das Einführen der gelernten Themen aus Osaka gab mir wiederum die Chance, die verschiedenen Kverneland Werke zu besuchen, um hier interne 5GEN / Kaizen Lehrgänge zu geben. Nach weiteren 5 Jahren bekam ich die Chance als Gesamtmontageleiter meine Karriere weiter voranzutreiben, und das ist genau die Position auf der ich jetzt arbeite. Sie haben vielleicht festgestellt, dass ein oft genutztes Wort in diesem Text „Chance“ ist, und genau das ist das Beste wenn man für die Kverneland Group / Kubota arbeitet. Wenn man seine Arbeit gut macht, bekommt man die Chancen dies zu zeigen und auch zu nutzen.

Salesman and assistant shop manager
I got hired by Kverneland Group in November 2012, after 5 years in the Electronics Industry as a salesman and assistant shop manager. Started as an industrial engineer in the main assembly at Kverneland Group Klepp, this was a big change for me. Going from selling products to assembling plough was challenging. Gradually I got more responsibility and got to take on other areas of the main assembly. From printery to planning and organizing the main assembly. Incredible co-workers that helped me develop with the training, openness and always in a good mood. During this last year I’ve been substituting as a process coordinator in the main assembly, this has been by far the most challenging and educational period for me. Working close to Kubota employees from Japan and learning from them. Changing from standard assembly to line assembly, and a inspiring team leader who has given me good advice and shared important knowledge from the working life. Got a permanent contract as a operations coordinator as my substitute year was over. And really looking forward to new challenges and good workdays at Kverneland Klepp. And a big thank you to Kverneland Group Klepp for giving me the opportunity to develop under their platform.
The company made sure that I received education as an industrial engineer in 2013, they also made sure I got educated in project management and as Quality Leader.
I started at Kverneland Group Klepp in 2011. The company made sure that I received education as an industrial engineer in 2013, they also made sure I got educated in project management and as Quality Leader. Two years after I graduated as an industrial engineer, I got a job in the quality department where I took a certificate in dimension control. In 2018 I was offered a position as Team Leader, where I work systematically to achieve the goals of Kverneland Group Klepp. My company is good at providing opportunities for competence raising. I am very grateful that I get to say I work in Kverneland Group Klepp.
The most interesting thing in working here is the dynamism.

I started working in this factory 35 years ago just after graduating in Mechanical Engineering at Bologna University-Italy and now I’m still here after some changes of ownerships and management over time
Project Leader Variable Balers – R&D Department Kverneland Group Ravenna – Italy
I started working in this factory 35 years ago just after graduating in Mechanical Engineering at Bologna University-Italy and now I’m still here after some changes of ownerships and management over time, All of them however always conjoint by the same constructive, united and dynamic mind, passion and targets. I was born in a small village in the countryside close to this area where my grandparents owned a small farm, and I’ll be always grateful for their simple, fair and wise principles, which led to a fundamental appreciation of the agricultural world and to realize that the farmers’ daily hard and heavy duty job deserves the maximum respect.I could summarize my activity and experience in Kverneland Group through four main topics: 1- respect, careful listening and serious care towards the customers 2- trusting colleagues, mutual support and friendly human relationships 3- humble adaption and determined will for a continuous learning and a growth 4- motivating challenges and innovative products in line with actual changes1- I’m firmly convinced that we always need to try to do our best with all the necessary efforts to cover the customers’ needs, requests and expectations as much as possible, hoping that our strong engagement makes them feel we commit ourselves in supporting and taking care of them, in order to obtain step by step their sincere esteem and appreciation. Customers are indeed the most essential heritage and the “real owners” of every factory and this thought fully matches one of the most important milestones of Kverneland Group’s mission.2- My staying in the same factory for such a long time is not only due to the interesting type of job involving varied features, tasks and challenges to be dealt in direct contact with dealers and customers (whose thanks are the main motivation to go on), it’s mostly due to the eager chance to be supported by competent, friendly and skillful colleagues from various countries, working with whom is a deep pleasure and privilege. The importance of human resources and relationships reflects another basic and focus point of Kverneland World, who trusts and believes in each employee, enhancing and bringing out his/her best skills, optimizing capacities, in order to feel good allowing positive and fruitful benefits also in private life. This matter is also a convinced suggestion for encouraging and motivating a person to start working in this company and I’m really proud and honored to be part of this Group which represents a kind of cozy, pleasant and well assorted family.3- Furthermore, meeting and contacting people having different cultures, experiences and knowledges gives the exciting opportunity to share helpful synergies with diversified and worthwhile capabilities, expertness and competences for a profitable exchange and comparison of opinions with the possibility of a continuous learning and a relevant constant personal development and growth from a professional and human perspective.4- About the range of Balers, Wrappers, Choppers and Rotary Tillers, which cover the equipment currently designed and manufactured in Kverneland Group Ravenna, the innovative products and devices implemented during the latest years and the new ones in the coming times, try to keep up with both the changes in agricultural activities, conditions, crops and the increasingly pressing and demanding desires and expectations from dealers, farmers and contractors. At the same time our commitment also concerns the maintaining of some characteristics and specifications we deem remarkable to distinguish every product and to make it well accepted and noteworthy, like the ergonomics and safety of the end users, the performances and the achievement of the required reliability, the friendly use and maintenance due to a simplified and industrialized construction with a particular focus on the productivity, the saving of resources, time, costs and fuel with the respect for the environment.Wishing all the best for sharing a stable present and a prosperous future.
Our team’s main responsibility is to help improve the design of our current range of products and to design production tools for use in our local manufacturing plant.
Engineer Aftercare and Production Engineering, Kverneland Group Nieuw Vennep
After graduating from my MSc degree in Industrial Engineering & Management in 2016, I started working for the department Research & Development at Kverneland Group Nieuw-Vennep. Here I work as an engineer for the team Aftercare & Production Engineering. Our team’s main responsibility is to help improve the design of our current range of products and to design production tools for use in our local manufacturing plant. During the design, the Kaizen philosophy (based on Kubota’s 5-Gen principle) is applied to improve the efficiency of the production processes. This can be quite challenging because many factors, such as quality, production time, safety and simplicity have to be taken into account. Dealing with this complexity, building our own prototypes and producing tools the mechanics are happy with, are the most interesting and satisfying parts of my job here at Kverneland. Kverneland offers a very dynamic and informal working environment. If you like to take initiative and can handle a lot of responsibility on your projects, this could be a good company for you. I think this is a place where a creative individual has the freedom to thrive.
This company often provides great opportunities for employees to obtain different work experiences and discover new skills.
I have observed that Japanese culture is clearly reflected in business life, and absolute success will come as a result of disciplined and transparent work.
Executive Senior Manager Sales and Marketing
Since the beginning of my professional relationship with Kubota, the company has given me personal and professional development.
I very much appreciated the support we received both from the headquarters and from Japanese colleagues locally.
