Kubota Tractor Corporation

In 1969, Kubota began exporting its 21 horsepower L200 compact tractors to the United States. Because of the initial success in the American marketplace, the Kubota Tractor Corporation was formed in Torrance, California in 1972. Kubota also owns other similar tractor companies in many countries including Australia [http://kubota.com.au] , Canada [http://www.kubota.ca/] , France [http://www.kubota.fr] , Germany [http://www.kubota.de/] , Spain [http://www.kubota-spain.com/] , and the United Kingdom [http://www.kubota.co.uk/] .

Kubota Manufacturing of America

In 1988, Kubota opened its first manufacturing facility, Kubota Manufacturing of America [http://www.kubota-kma.com/] , in Gainesville, GA (USA) for the production of front end loader & backhoe implements for Kubota tractors. Later, other products were added including an array of lawn and garden tractors and utility vehicles.

Kubota Industrial Equipment

In 2006, the before mentioned front end loader & backhoe production was transferred from KMA to a new manufacturing facility, Kubota Industrial Equipment, near Jefferson, GA (USA). This facility also prepares/configures the larger (B, L & M-series) tractors from Japan for delivery to KTC's 1,000+ dealerships across America.

Kubota Pacific

"See also: Ardent Computer Corporation"

In the mid 1980s Kubota, looking for new opportunities, provided funding for Ardent Computer Corporation, an American company that produced graphics minicomputers based on the MIPS architecture. After a merger and series of flops, control of the company was ceded to Kubota and was renamed Kubota Pacific and later Kubota Graphics Company. The company still wasn't very successful however, and was finally shut down in 1994.
