Buhler To Manufacture Higher HP Kubota Tractors

April 2, 2019 10:26 AM
 
The new Kubota branded tractors will be produced at Buhler’s Winnipeg, Manitoba factory.

In Mid-March Buhler announced it will produce tractors for Kubota per an OEM agreement. Production is said to already be underway; however, development for this tractor platform began nearly five years ago. 
The new Kubota branded tractors will be produced at Buhler’s Winnipeg, Manitoba factory. The front-wheel-assist platform tractors will be in the mid-horsepower range and are said to “enhance” the largest tractors currently offered by Kubota. 
“This agreement is exciting for both companies,” Grant Adolph, chief operating officer of Buhler Industries said in a news release. “The Versatile brand has a global reputation in agriculture for building high horsepower tractors that are reliable and well-built. As Kubota Corporation expands their presence in the farm machinery industry, these brand qualities are in line with their core values.”
Buhler released that this is a long-term agreement, and the company looks for this agreement to increase its overall production and reduce overhead at the Versatile factory in Winnipeg. In October 2011, the company produced its 100,000th tractor at the Winnipeg factory, which has a history dating back to 1966.
