Golden opportunities opened up for farmers when Tata Zambia and John Deere partnered and expanded their presence in Zambia in June 2021 to support the country’s fast-growing agricultural and construction market.
“We are committed to providing our services in Africa and the Middle East, giving customers continued access to agricultural solutions as well as new construction solutions from John Deere,” says Kobus du Toit, head of agricultural and construction equipment at Tata Zambia.
“We’ve seen exceptional growth in the past year, and we’re excited about what the future holds for John Deere as we look to expand even more broadly in Zambia as well as the rest of Africa.” – Cobus du Toit added.
John Deere’s exceptional service
“We understand what our communities need, and we only supply equipment built and designed for African conditions. We always put our farmers first. It’s important for us to build trust with our farmers. We know how important time on the farm is; so we want to keep downtime to a minimum by ensuring that we always have enough parts and assuring farmers that we are one phone call away,” Kobus says.
“Our extensive platform network also ensures that farmers can easily access our branches and technicians. We have an exceptional team of technicians ready to help farmers with their specific needs. We currently have four branches in Lusaka, Kitwe, Mpongwe and Mkushi,” Kobus says.
In Zambia, you’ll find John Deere 5E Series tractors from north to south. Once you see one on your neighbor’s farm, faithfully working year after year, you’ll decide to get one on your own farm.
Kobus explains why John Deere 5E Series tractors are so popular: “John Deere General Tractors are built to provide the best performance while saving money on fuel and maintenance. These tractors are designed to perform in the harshest environments; John Deere tractors are always ready to get the job done.
“The 5E tractors are built to run longer and more efficiently; they’re designed to deliver low cost of ownership through lower fuel consumption and lower maintenance costs than other tractors in this class.
“We make sure every branch has at least one or two 5E Series tractors. Once you see one, you can’t say no. Every farmer on the farm needs a 5E workhorse tractor,” concludes Kobus.
“Not only are 5E tractors a success in Zambia, we recently introduced 5D series tractors to the market. They are also enjoying exceptional success, especially among new-age farmers. Our 6B, 6M and 8R tractors are also becoming very popular.
“Not only do we supply first-class farm equipment, but construction equipment for all segments of the industry, from TLBs to bulldozers to small excavators to large ADTs, our machines work hard to help you succeed,” states Kobus.
