To meet sales and production growth of its existing products, Kubota Manufacturing of America (KMA) will purchase 180 acres in Hall County’s new Gateway Industrial Centre. The expansion will create an additional 650 jobs and $100 million investment over the next three years.
Established in 1988, KMA operates its North American manufacturing headquarters at its existing facility in Gainesville Industrial Park North at Ramsey Road and currently employs 1,300 people. KMA manufactures Kubota lawn tractors, zero-turn mowers and utility vehicles at its Gainesville-Hall County facility.
Approximately one-half of all Kubota branded equipment sold in the United States is manufactured at its 190-acre Gainesville facility.
The company is a true flagship for international manufacturing companies in Georgia and supports countless suppliers throughout the state. “This is a significant project for Gainesville-Hall County,” said Tim Evans, Vice President of Economic Development for the Greater Hall Chamber. “Our commitment to supporting existing industries such as Kubota and their suppliers will produce jobs and support small businesses throughout the region.”
