31ca52a17d7ad0582c6ec3a4526ea940Tractor manufacturer Kubota Corporation opened a 522,000-square-foot, $73 million, manufacturing facility on its Kubota Industrial Equipment campus in Jefferson, Georgia. The plant, located on a 88-acre site, recently began production of Kubota’s 30- to 50-horsepower compact tractor models.

Added to existing facilities in the state, the recent expansion brings Kubota’s total footprint of manufacturing and assembly space in Georgia to 2.2 million square feet. The new facility is located on the same site as the existing KIE property in Jefferson, which currently produces Kubota implements, including loaders and backhoes. Once fully operational, the new facility will add hundreds of new jobs to support the production capacity of 22,000 units annually.
