Kubota Tractor has unveiled $87m plans to build two new logistics buildings alongside its fifth operational division and sales office in Kansas.
The company will purchase 203 acres of land near its existing leased facility in Edgerton, Kansas. The two new buildings, encompassing one million square foot, will be used to streamline logistics processes for delivery of the firm’s service parts and equipment to American customers.
The new Midwest Division office at Edgerton will be located in the same complex as the parts and whole-good operations. Mike Jacobson, who has been working Kubota since 17 years, will take charge of the new division from 1 January 2018.
Kubota Tractor Masato Yoshikawa president and CEO said: “We’ve had access to an excellent workforce in the area and we’ve built a quality team; together, we’ve achieved operational efficiencies to better serve our dealers and customers and we remain committed to growing and expanding to ensure we are equipped to support Kubota’s continued Midwest growth and overall North American expansion.”
