Kubota Gainesville Georgia Research and Development Center

Kubota North America Corporation (KNA) (parent company of Kubota Tractor Corporation (KTC), Kubota Manufacturing of America (KMA), and Kubota Canada Ltd (KCL)) celebrated the grand opening of their Gainesville, Georgia Research and Development Center. Kubota built the new 280-acre R&D Center about 50 miles outside of Atlanta. It should help the company better serve its North American customers.

Kubota Georgia Research and Development Center Details

Kubota invested over $85 million dollars bringing their new Georgia Research and Development Center online. The new facility will immediately employ 70 engineering and technical employees. Kubota plans to expand the facility to accommodate as many as 200 employees by the end of 2027.

“Constant investment in our North America infrastructure keeps Kubota evolving and forward-looking. We continuously innovate to better meet the needs of our customers. It’s at the core of what we do, it drives our way of thinking and the way we do business. This new R&D center here in Georgia is going to allow us to continue to innovate products and solution advancements with our U.S. and Canada customers’ needs in mind.”

Powered by Renewable Energy

What might surprise some is that the new state-of-the-art Kubota R&D center is 100% powered by renewable energy. The facility is partially powered by solar sunflowers and the parking lot features a large solar-powered roof area that supports electric vehicle charging stations.

Within the Kubota Research and Development Center live engineering offices, workshops, and several testing labs. Outside the facility, the company has plenty of space for testing turf, utility vehicles, tractors, and construction equipment.

Kubota opens their new Georgia R&D Center on the eve of celebrating 50 years in the U.S. market. Kubota already employs over 3,000 people in Georgia who work in manufacturing, sales, distribution, and engineering operations. The company seems to be continuing to build upon an already strong foundation.

Other Kubota Facilities

Kubota’s Georgia footprint also includes its Southeast Division office, located in Suwanee, Ga., with additional divisional offices located in Edgerton, Kansas; Fort Worth, Texas; Columbus, Ohio; Lodi, Calif.; and KCL headquarters in Pickering, Ontario, all of which are well-positioned to provide regional support for all Kubota dealers.
