Florida Coast Equipment, Florida’s largest Kubota dealer, is continuing to create new jobs in Florida as part of its major expansion by announcing a new dealership in Homestead to serve Miami-Dade County. The company announced the dealership would begin hiring immediately with 20 new team members over the next sixty days as part of the project.
Todd Bachman, President of Florida Coast Equipment, said Florida Coast Equipment would be breaking ground on a brand new facility within 12 months, with a temporary dealership set up by the end of the year. The new dealership will be full line Kubota dealership providing parts, sales, service and rental.
“These are exciting times at Florida Coast Equipment and Big Orange Rental,” said Bachman. “We look forward to building a world-class organization that provides equipment solutions, support and service for contractors, landscapers, farmers and land-owners.”
The move comes less than a month after Florida Coast Equipment announced the creation of 60 new jobs with its expansion into Land O’Lakes and Plant City with the purchase of 2 Gulf Coast Turf and Tractor dealerships.
Bachman credited Florida’s governor for creating a business friendly environment in the state that allows Florida’s job creators to thrive despite national labor and inventory shortages.
“Many states across the country are struggling economically from the pandemic,” said Bachman. “Our governor fought to keep Floridians working and ensure Florida stays open for business.”
Bachman was quick to note that while the business is growing, it would remain committed to it’s family-focused, community driven approach that has made the company Florida’s premier Kubota dealership.
“We are excited to grow and bring new jobs to the great state of Florida,” said Bachman. “But no matter how much we grow, it’s our tradition of delivering impeccable customer service and unrivaled product support that makes us who we are and that will never change.”
