Kubota Announces Grand Opening of R&D Center, Expanding North America-Based Innovation

GAINESVILLE, GA — Kubota North America Corporation (KNA), the parent company for Kubota Tractor Corporation (KTC) and Kubota Manufacturing of America (KMA), and Kubota Canada Ltd. (KCL) recently celebrated the grand opening of the new 280-acre, Research and Development Center in the state of Georgia to meet the needs of North American customers. Kubota has invested more than $85 million to bring the new facility online and will open with 70 engineering and technical employees and grow to nearly 200 employees over the next five years.

“Constant investment in our North America infrastructure keeps Kubota evolving and forward-looking,” said Yuichi “Ken” Kitao, President and Representative Director, Kubota Corporation. “This new R&D center here in Georgia is going to allow us to continue to innovate products and solution advancements with our U.S. and Canada customers’ needs in mind.”

The new center is 100 percent powered by renewable energy and built on the sustainable principles. For example, the center is powered in part by solar sunflowers and the parking lot features a solar-powered roof to support electric vehicle charging stations. The center will house engineering offices, workshops, and testing labs, and outside are tracks for testing turf, utility vehicles, tractors, and construction equipment.

Kubota’s Georgia footprint also includes its Southeast Division office, located in Suwanee, Georgia.
