- Background and aims
- Kubota As an approach to development globalization, in 2011 Kubota began developing selected models of mowers at its North American manufacturing base, Kubota Manufacturing of America Corporation (KMA). By establishing a new development base in the U.S., Kubota will make a full-fledged effort to develop products there.
- While staying close to the North American market to capture its specific needs both promptly and accurately, Kubota will utilize its core and cutting-edge technologies from its R&D bases in Japan to provide its customers with original products that appeal to local customers.
