Hamblys appointed as authorized dealer for the full range of Bobcat equipment in the South West

HAMBLYS Ltd, based in Launceston in Cornwall, have been appointed as the new authorized Bobcat dealer for Cornwall and Devon with immediate effect. Hamblys will also take over responsibility as the authorized Bobcat dealer for the West Somerset area from 1 July 2024.

John Christofides, regional sales director for Bobcat EMEA, said: ‘Hamblys is a very professional business with an excellent reputation in the South West. We are looking forward to working closely with them to increase the growth of the Bobcat brand in this area in every sector from our traditional markets in construction, rental, and agriculture to the newer markets such as ground maintenance equipment.’


Steve Barrett, managing director of Hamblys, said: ‘We are very pleased to have been awarded the Bobcat franchise and to begin the next phase of our growth into the construction industry. We have recruited Lee Blewett as our Bobcat franchise manager, who will lead our ‘non-agricultural’ business development. He joins us with an excellent background in construction and will be bringing extensive experience and knowledge to the new role to best serve our construction customers.’

As well as their head office in Launceston, Hamblys have another branch in Redruth, Cornwall, two further two branches in Devon at Honiton and Torrington, and a fifth branch in Somerset at Bishops Lydeard. To support the Bobcat range of machines and attachments, Hamblys will offer a full selection of genuine Bobcat accessories and parts in their area. Customers will also benefit from Hamblys’ on-site service network, covering everything from emergency repairs to routine maintenance.

The Bobcat range offers 10 skid-steer loaders including the brand new R-Series S86 model, complementing these wheeled machines with a selection of five compact track loaders, including the latest top-of-the-range R-Series T86 model. Bobcat also offer an extensive portfolio of mini-excavators from 1.0 to 9.4 tonnes, including two electric models and a selection of rigid-frame and rotary telehandler models.

In the last three years, Bobcat have also entered the European wheel loader market for compact wheel loaders and small articulated loaders and launched an innovative line-up of ground maintenance equipment. At the beginning of 2024, the company introduced a full line of forklifts and warehouse equipment, alongside a complete range of portable air compressors and electrical generators.
