Kubota Announces Distribution Expansion

Kubota Tractor Corp. announced plans to expand its North American Distribution Center (NADC) by announcing the details of its letter of intent to purchase 203 acres near the company’s current leased facility in Edgerton, Kan. The company said it plans to design and build two, 1.0 million sq. ft. facilities to expand distribution capacity and streamline logistics processes for the delivery of Kubota branded service parts and equipment.

Kubota’s NADC will continue to receive and process shipments from Asia and Europe, in addition to goods from suppliers in North America. It will continue to be the worldwide source for many Kubota parts, which will be exported globally.  In addition to the logistics facilities, Kubota also announced it will establish a fifth operational division and sales office in Edgerton.

The new Midwest Division office will reside within the same complex as the parts and whole-good operations and provide a sales presence for Kubota in the heartland of America, the company said.  Mike Jacobson, will be appointed as director and division manager of this new division effective January 1, 2018, and will lead the company’s efforts to expand its product offerings and markets in the Midwest.

In late 2016, the company announced the 617,000 sq. ft. expansion of its National Distribution Center (NDC) in Jefferson, Ga. Jointly, the NADC in Kansas and NDC facility, located near Kubota’s manufacturing operations and their Southeast Division in Georgia, strengthen Kubota’s distribution capacity and infrastructure in North America to support its growth, the company said. The new Midwest Division is an extension to the company’s existing divisional operation structure that includes offices in Suwanee, Ga.; Fort Worth, Texas; Columbus, Ohio; and, Lodi, Calif.
