Kubota Manufacturing of America Corporation (KMA) broke ground on its 502,000 s.f. manufacturing facility in Gainesville, Ga. Monday. Situated on 180 acres of land, Kubota’s new facility at Gateway Industrial Centre will manufacture the company’s RTV series utility vehicles. KMA selected Gray to perform design-build services on the facility.

 

Located three miles from KMA’s existing facilities, the plant is expected to begin production in spring of 2017, with the capacity to produce 50,000 units annually.  It’s estimated that the expansion will allow KMA to increase capacity by 60 percent over the next five years. In addition, the existing facility will also undergo enhancements to increase its production capacity to support KMA’s growing turf business.

 

“This is an exciting day for Kubota,” said Mr. Hironobu Kubota, President of KMA. “As the demand for Kubota products continue to grow in the U.S., our Georgia facilities will be well-positioned to meet our customers’ needs now and well into the future.”

 

“Kubota’s continued investments in Georgia make it one of our state’s greatest business success stories,” said Lt. Governor Casey Cagle at Monday’s groundbreaking ceremony, which was attended by state and local officials along with Kubota executives and employees. “Today’s groundbreaking is a testament to the company’s commitment to continue strengthening the state’s manufacturing base and creating future job growth. We thank Kubota for believing in the potential of our state and investing in the future of our residents.”
