Kubota to expand Georgia facility

Kubota plans to begin construction of a 500,000-square-foot plant on an 88-acre site in Jefferson, Georgia, in January 2012 and anticipates completion and full production by January 2013. The plant, which will be located on the same site as the current Kubota Industrial Equipment facility, will produce Kubota’s 30- to 50-horsepower compact tractor models. Kubota plans to employ 200 people at the plant and to produce approximately 22,000 units annually.
