Kubota Tractor Corporation has announced it has begun construction on a 617,865 sq. ft. expansion at its national distribution center in Jefferson, Ga., northeast of Atlanta. The $16 million expansion project is scheduled to be completed by July 2017 – company officials point to it as a direct response to Kubota’s growth in the compact tractor, utility vehicle and turf product markets.

At 956,161 sq. ft., the new facility will be triple its current size. Kubota will use the extra space for improved warehousing efficiencies to store and process equipment from its nearby Kubota Manufacturing of America (KMA) and Kubota Industrial Equipment facilities (KIE).

“This is an exciting time for Kubota as our continued growth has led us to several facility expansions in recent years – from our new manufacturing plant in nearby Gainesville, to our new headquarters building in Grapevine, Texas,” says Alex Woods, vice president of product resources, parts and divisional operations. “We are diversifying our product lines and expanding our operational footprint here in Georgia to better respond to ongoing dealer and customer demands for multiple product lines here in the U.S.”

Kubota’s KMA facility is planning a new 502,000 sq. ft. plant starting in January 2017 to increase production of the company’s RTV-Series utility vehicles. Woods says Kobota has been operating in Georgia for the past 40 years, beginning its first operations in Norcross.
