Tata company opens new branch in Nakuru town

28 April 2015, 16:11 Wilshere

Nakuru - Tata Africa holdings Kenya has opened a new branch worth KES 400 million in Nakuru town.

The branch, located next to Statehouse Nakuru, was launched Monday and will serve farmers from across the County as well as those from neighboring counties

Executive director of Tata Africa holding Kenya, Naresh Leekha said that the branch will also stock John Deere and Tata genuine spare parts.

He said the desire to open the branch was driven by the fact that Nakuru is a rich agricultural base.

“We chose Nakuru town since this is a County well known to be agricultural region,” he said  

Leekha said that the John Deere in conjunction with Tata are set to open John Deere Technical University in Nairobi, to impart necessary technical skills on young people who will in turn be absorbed into John Deere branches in the country or dealer shops.

“Very soon we will be opening a training university in the city where we train youths on how to operate these machines,” he remarked.

He said that the opening of the university is one way of giving back to the society.     

Leekha said that in the long run, John Deere aims to spend KES 800 million to fully equip the Nakuru branch.

The director noted that John Deere has also been participating in farmers' field days, saying that through such forums they have been able to reach out to potential customers.
