Kubota Tractor Corp. announced the completion of a 200-acre land purchase in Logistics Park, Kanss City in Edgerton, Kan. Kubota said it will construct two, one million sq. ft. logistics facilities for its new North American Distribution Center (NADC). Kubota said it plans to expand distribution capacity and streamline logistics processes for more timely delivery of Kubota-branded service parts and equipment to U.S. customers.
A current 765,000 sq. ft. leased facility will remain in operation in Logistics Park Kansas City until the new facilities are complete. It will continue to be the source for Kubota parts and equipment for worldwide export.
Once complete, the new facility will allow the company to continue to receive and process shipments from Asia and Europe, in addition to goods from suppliers in North America, with more capacity and with accelerated shipping speed for the delivery of Kubota parts and equipment.
The new campus will also house Kubota’s newest Midwest Division office, which is an extension of the company’s existing divisional operation structure that provides regional support to Kubota dealers. Kubota’s division offices are located in Suwanee, Ga.; Fort Worth, Texas; Columbus, Ohio; and, Lodi, Calif.; and, soon, Edgerton, Kansas.
