Kubota continues to expand its production capacity in the United States. It will create a new manufacturing facility in Keynesville, Georgia, thanks to its existing facilities.
Kubota plans to expand production capacity in the United States
As the demand for tractors in North America grows rapidly, the need to expand production capacity for tractors and construction equipment connections to support dealers has become an urgent issue for Kubota. Although Kubota Industrial Equipment (KIE) already manufactures the equipment, as demand is high in North America, the company has decided to further expand its production capacity by building a new plant.
As a result, new and existing plants will meet North America’s greatest demand, increasing the annual production capacity of equipment and connections from 100,000 tons. Up to 210 thousand pieces. With more than 90% of new tractors sold in North America equipped with front loaders and other tools, this is a great opportunity for Kubota.
“This is a wonderful period of unprecedented growth for our company as this next investment opens up a huge opening for our new R&D facility in Keynesville,” said Shinko Hanada, President and CEO of Kubota Tractor Corporation and Kubota North America.
Launched this year, the project will be operational by 2021 and will generate more than 500 production jobs.
