Japanese Manufacturer to Build 1 MSF Hub in KC Area

Kubota Tractor Corp. plans to locate its North American distribution hub on 203 acres near the company’s current leased facility in Edgerton, Kan.

Kubota Tractor Corp., marketer and distributor of Kubota-engineered and manufactured machinery and equipment, will build its North American distribution hub on 203 acres, which the company plans to purchase. The logistics center will be located near the manufacturer’s current facility in Edgerton, Kan.

The company intends to design and build two one million-square-foot facilities to expand its distribution capacity for the delivery of service parts and equipment to its increasing customer base in the U.S. In addition to the logistics facilities, Kubota will establish a fifth operational division and sales office in Edgerton, within the same complex.

“Kubota already employs 150 Kansans in Edgerton and the expansion could add another 150-200 on top of that,” said Governor Sam Brownback, in a prepared statement.

Kubota recently unveiled its new headquarters in Grapevine, Texas. The two-building campus includes 125,000 square feet of office space and a 68,000-square-foot R&D facility.
