EDGERTON, Kansas – Kubota Tractor Corporation has opened two, one million square-foot, logistics facilities for its North American Distribution Center (NADC) on 200-acres of land within Phase II of Logistics Park Kansas City in Edgerton, Kansas.

The new campus is Kubota’s largest parts and supply chain campus in North America and will significantly increase distribution capacity and streamline the company’s logistics processes for Kubota-branded service parts and equipment throughout North America, Asia and Europe.

“Today’s event represents Kubota’s continued growth and ongoing commitment to the North American market,” said Harry Yoshida, president and CEO of Kubota Tractor and Kubota North America Corporations.

“With the increased warehouse capacity, advanced inventory systems and centralized logistics capabilities here in Kansas, we strengthen our business and become more competitive to meet our growing customer demand.”

The new facility will receive and process parts and equipment shipments from Asia and Europe, in addition to goods from suppliers in North America.

The new campus also supports Kubota’s new Midwest Division office, which is an extension of the company’s existing divisional operation structure that provides regional support to Kubota dealers. Kubota’s other four division offices are located in Suwanee, Georgia; Fort Worth, Texas; Columbus, Ohio; and Lodi, California.
