Start-up business secures Hyundai dealership

Steve Corner and Brian Conn

HYUNDAI has strengthened its UK dealer network with the appointment of TBS Plant to cover South Yorkshire, Lincolnshire, Nottinghamshire and Derbyshire.

TBS Plant is a newly formed company led by Steve Corner and Brian Conn, who have both worked with the Hyundai brand in other dealerships.

Hyundai UK and Ireland sales manager Tony Reeves said, “The TBS team bring with them a wealth of experience in the supply of construction equipment and we are very pleased to have them on board. Their knowledge of Hyundai construction equipment is second to none and through TBS Plant, Hyundai are now able to offer our local customers the full line of construction machinery and the highest levels of sales, aftermarket and parts support.”

Steve Corner, director of TBS Plant added, “The original focus of TBS was to distribute screening and crushing brands which include Maximus, Rubble Master and Pronar where we have established a successful dealership since September. The Hyundai Construction Equipment franchise became unexpectedly available and the opportunity arose for us to take the brand on in addition to our current products.

“It was an honour for us to be considered to undertake the Hyundai dealership for this region, particularly as we are a start-up business. Ultimately, we believe that Hyundai was confident in our knowledge and experience and we are very much looking forward to growing the brands presence and market share. As a distributor we are able to offer the full range of Hyundai products from mini excavators to the heavy line machines.”
