Kuhn Farm Machinery has appointed Graham Monteith as parts and amenity pro sales specialist, covering the south of England and Wales.
He takes responsibility for the promotion, supply and prompt delivery of KUHN genuine parts, alongside sales and technical support for Kuhn's Amenity Pro range of amenity, horticultural and landscape maintenance equipment.
Growing up on a family farm in Gloucestershire, Monteith has deep-rooted agricultural connections and developed his interest in machinery by working as a mechanic for a local dealership.
These early acquired skills proved a useful way to finance his studies as he gained an engineering-related degree at Coventry University.
After a period away from the industry, Monteith has pursued a wide-ranging career in agricultural engineering, working in a variety of roles with Case New Holland in Russia and north Africa, and in parts and servicing for John Deere in Africa and the Middle East.
Most recently, he has worked with his brother in the family’s beef fattening and livestock haulage business.
"It’s been my ambition to work in the agricultural machinery sector again and I have known and respected Kuhn as a leader and innovator for a long time," he said.
This is an exciting time to be involved in agricultural and amenity machinery, such is the rate of change in technology and the progression towards a solutions-based approach.
"I’m relishing the challenge of being a part of a dynamic and progressive team at Kuhn UK."
