Gov. Deal Celebrates Kubota's Expansion In Georgia At Grand Opening Of $73 Million Production Facility In Jefferson

Kubota products currently manufactured and assembled at Georgia facilities include RTV utility vehicles; BX-Series subcompact tractors; Z-Series commercial and residential zero-turn mowers; and Kubota implements and attachments, including loaders, backhoes and mower decks. Just added at the new KIE facility are the Kubota L3200 and L3800 compact tractors.

"We are honored that Kubota has decided to expand its presence in the city of Jefferson," said Jim Joiner, mayor, the city of Jefferson. "Kubota has been an excellent corporate citizen and we look forward to our continued partnership involving this third expansion in the McClure Industrial Park. Creating much needed jobs in our community is a priority of the City of Jefferson.  We welcome Kubota's expansion and the new jobs that will be added to their operations." 

The Georgia Department of Economic Development (GDEcD) partnered with the development authorities of Jefferson and Jackson County and the City of Jefferson to manage the KIE expansion. GDEcD senior regional project manager Susie Haggard managed this expansion on behalf of the state.

" Georgia's 40-year business relationship with Japan has been the foundation of success for Kubota and hundreds of other Japanese companies here," said GDEcD Commissioner Chris Cummiskey. "Our unique package of workforce, location, affordability and global access is very attractive for international companies looking to expand their markets."

Kubota Social Responsibility

As Kubota's business and overall footprint has grown in the state and throughout the U.S., the company has maintained its global commitment to minimizing its impact on the environment. As part of its corporate social responsibility initiatives, KIE has adopted several environmentally-conscious processes and product-installations onsite, resulting in the facility receiving ISO 14001 certification. Among its most advanced environmentally-conscious technology is the Kubota Membrane installation that will allow KIE to recycle and reuse 70 percent of its overall water consumption, which is particularly beneficial for the work done onsite within the facility's paint shop operation.
