Ktwo are a leading British manufacturer of farming machinery with factories based in Buckinghamshire and Hampshire and have invested significantly in supporting British Farming throughout the past 12 months during the Covid-19 pandemic.

Ktwo have adapted and continued to grow rapidly during the past year to ensure they 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, Ktwo Managing Director.

Ktwo purchased Warwick Trailers in 2019 to increase the size of their production facilities to nearly 80,000 square foot, giving them 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.”

Ktwo recently won Leading Innovators in Agricultural Machinery 2020 in BUILD Magazine’s 2020 Construction & Engineering Awards which is a testament to their product innovation this year.

During 2020 they improved their muck spreader range by redesigning their Ktwo Evo and Ktwo Bio spreaders to maximise outputs and increase efficiency.

They have invested in their product design and have increased their design engineering team by three in the last year alone. They are continuing to focus on product innovation based on customer feedback and the most up-to-date technology.

Along with their new design engineers, they have further invested in their support team with service and back up engineers out on the road for customers.

Will Green from Robinson Contract Services has worked closely with Ktwo for many years and praises them for their 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.”

Ktwo 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. They have a dedicated page on their website for farmers and their families to find advice during difficult times and often promote it across their social media networks. The page links to many services and charities such as The Farming Community Network’s Farming Help and YANA Rural Health Support which offers a full directory of support services.

It is great to see a British manufacturer investing in their people and their industry during these challenging times and with a positive story for 2020.
