Naivasha December 3rd 2015. Simba Corporation’s Agriculture Division today held a tractor demonstration and open day for its recently acquired SAME tractors franchise.

“We are excited to have a chance to contribute to the country’s most important industry – agriculture- through the Simba Corp Agricultural Division. We will spare no expense to ensure SAME Tractor owners enjoy world class services across our network,” he added.
The firm has laid out an elaborate market penetration strategy as part of its business development efforts. The newly created Simba Corp Agricultural Division allows SAME to offer nationwide service; genuine spare parts; a broad distribution network and tractor tracking solutions.
Also commenting during the launch, Simba Corp Agricultural Division Brand Manager, Robin Schalch said, “Our models are built with simplicity of design, unsurpassed reliability, outstanding fuel economy, and minimal maintenance requirements.”
In a bid to meet the demands of new and existing customers, Simba Corp has set-up a fully-fledged after sales operation.
