Equipment company plans to plant roots in Kansas to expand distribution capacity and streamline logistics processes.

Kubota Tractor, Grapevine, Texas, has announced the completion of a 200 acre land purchase within Phase II of Logistics Park Kansas City in Edgerton, Kansas, making the company the first major tenant for the industrial park.

Kubota plans to plant roots in Kansas to expand distribution capacity and streamline logistics processes for the timely delivery of Kubota service parts and equipment to U.S. customers.

“Kubota is ready to begin this exciting project along with our city, county and state partners to expand our infrastructure and create solid footing in the Midwest, the Heartland of America,” says Masato Yoshikawa, president and CEO of Kubota Tractor Corporation. “We are proud to make this significant investment here in Kansas, a state that shares our values and supports our ambitious goals for the future.”

The current 765,000 square foot leased facility will remain in operation in Logistics Park Kansas City until the new facilities are complete. It will continue to be the source for Kubota parts and equipment for worldwide export.

The new campus will also house Kubota’s newest Midwest Division office, which is an extension of the company’s existing divisional operation structure that provides regional support to Kubota dealers. Kubota’s division offices are located in Suwanee, Georgia; Fort Worth, Texas; Columbus, Ohio; Lodi, California and Edgerton, Kansas.
