Kubota Tractor opens North American Distribution Center in Kansas
The company plans to hire 100 people this year and serve as the primary distribution hub for Kubota parts and whole goods distribution across the U.S. and Canada.
“Kubota dealers and customers have counted on Kubota to engineer high-quality products and deliver outstanding product support for more than 43 years,” Masato Yoshikawa, Kubota's president and CEO, said. “We remain committed to making strategic investments in infrastructure and personnel to meet and exceed expectations. This expansion will ensure that we are well-equipped to support Kubota’s continued growth in the U.S.”
Gov. Sam Brownback, who attended the grand opening, said the new facility is a long-term investment for Kubota and Kansas.
“Kansas’ strategic central location and the access it provides to trade corridors will help keep Kubota connected with its dealer and customer network for many years to come,” Brownback said. “Our work force and infrastructure will continue to make this a great place for Kubota to grow and expand.”
The NADC’s central location improves Kubota’s access to its 1,100-strong dealer network, expanding overnight delivery services, improving shipping speed and accelerating response times. Additionally, the facility will serve as a regional sales office for the company’s northern district within its central division, in line with Kubota’s commitment to strategically locating resources and personnel near customers and dealers.
