Kubota Announces Further Expansion in Georgia, Strengthening North American Footprint

7/29/2019 Categories: All

GAINESVILLE, Ga. (July 24, 2019) – Kubota North America Corporation (KNA), the parent company for Kubota Tractor Corporation (KTC) and Kubota Manufacturing of America (KMA), unveiled its latest plans today to expand the company’s footprint in Georgia with the purchase of approximately 300 acres of land near the company’s current manufacturing facilities in Gainesville-Hall County. Kubota plans to invest more than $85 million in the site for a project that will establish a new engineering and design center to complement its overall North American footprint.
    “This project is another great milestone for Kubota and it emphasizes our commitment to expand our presence in Georgia as a major hub of our North American operations,” said Haruyuki (Harry) Yoshida, President and CEO of Kubota Tractor Corporation and Kubota North America Corporation. “We continue to grow to meet the demands of Kubota dealers and customers, while improving operational efficiencies and realizing manufacturing excellence here in Georgia and across our business.”        
    Georgia Governor Brian Kemp welcomed today’s announcement, saying, “This project marks the fourth major expansion by Kubota in the State of Georgia since 2013. Kubota’s renewed commitment demonstrates that Georgia’s pro-business environment not only attracts new businesses, but also allows existing industry to continue investing to grow and thrive in Georgia.”  
    In 2017, the company also expanded its National Distribution Center in Jefferson, Georgia. Additionally, Kubota is nearing completion of its North American Distribution Center in Edgerton, Kansas, and together these new supply chain facilities will strengthen Kubota’s distribution capacity and infrastructure to support its aggressive business strategy and continued growth in North America. 
    “Georgia’s strong workforce development programs, including the Work Based Learning programs in high schools, the job skills training from the Technical College System of Georgia, and the University System of Georgia engineering programs, have all played a key role in Kubota’s decision to continue to grow our businesses in Georgia,” said Kubota Vice President Phil Sutton. “Kubota has been operating in the state of Georgia for more than 40 years, and today, we employ nearly 3,000 people in the state across our manufacturing, sales, distribution and engineering operations.”   
    Kubota’s Georgia footprint also includes its Southeast Division office, located in Suwanee, Ga., with additional divisional offices located in Edgerton, Kansas; Fort Worth, Texas; Columbus, Ohio; and, Lodi, Calif., all of which are well-positioned to provide regional support for all Kubota dealers. 
    KTC and KMA are U.S. subsidiaries of Kubota North America Corporation and Kubota Corporation, based in Osaka, Japan.
