Kubota North American Corp. is purchasing around 300 acres in Gainesville to establish a new engineering and design center near the company’s manufacturing facilities at 2715 Ramsey Road in northeast Hall County.
Kubota intends to invest more than $85 million into the site at 4275 Simpson Road in Gainesville to expand the company’s footprint in Georgia.
“This project is another great milestone for Kubota and it emphasizes our commitment to expand our presence in Georgia as a major hub of our North American operations,” Haruyuki “Harry” Yoshida, president and CEO of Kubota Tractor Corp. and Kubota North America Corp. said in a press release on Wednesday, July 24. “We continue to grow to meet the demands of Kubota dealers and customers, while improving operational efficiencies and realizing manufacturing excellence here in Georgia and across our business.”
Gov. Brian Kemp showed his support of the project, which marks the fourth major expansion by Kubota in Georgia.
“Kubota’s renewed commitment demonstrates that Georgia’s pro-business environment not only attracts new businesses, but also allows existing industry to continue investing to grow and thrive in Georgia,” Kemp said in Wednesday’s press release.
