Kubota to build new Jefferson facility
To invest more than $16 million in distribution center
Kubota Tractor Corporation officials will break ground this week for a new 350,000-square foot national distribution center in Jefferson. The facility will be located behind the Kubota Industrial Equipment building in the McClure Industrial Park.
The Kubota National Distribution Center, the tractor manufacturer’s fifth facility to open in Georgia, is set to become operational in late 2008. The company plans to invest $16 million in the expansion.
Kubota Tractor Corporation, Kubota Manufacturing of America KMA in Gainesville and Kubota Industrial Equipment KIE in Jefferson are affiliates of Kubota Corporation, Osaka, Japan.
Nearly half of all Kubota-branded equipment sold in the United States is manufactured and assembled in Georgia.
Kubota Tractor Corporation is the United States marketer and distributor of Kubota-branded equipment, including a complete line of tractors, performance-matched implements, compact and power utility class construction equipment, consumer lawn and garden equipment, commercial turf products and utility vehicles.
