Kubota Tractor announces plans for new North American Distribution Center in Edgerton, Kan.

by Mary Rooney | Jul 10, 2018

Kubota Tractor Corporation recently announced the completion of a 200-acre land purchase within Phase II of Logistics Park Kansas City in Edgerton, making the company the first major tenant for the industrial park. The company will construct a pair of one million-sq.-ft., state-of-the-art logistics facilities for its new North American Distribution Center (NADC). Kubota plans to plant solid roots in Kansas to expand distribution capacity and streamline logistics processes for the timely delivery of Kubota-branded service parts and equipment to U.S. customers. 

The company has already experienced increased access to its 1,100-strong dealer network since it began leasing space in the area in 2015. The current 765,000-sq.-ft. leased facility will remain in operation in Logistics Park Kansas City until the new facilities are complete. It will continue to be the source for Kubota parts and equipment for worldwide export. 

Once complete, the new facility will allow the company to continue to receive and process shipments from Asia and Europe, in addition to goods from suppliers in North America, with more capacity and with accelerated shipping speed for the timely delivery of Kubota parts and equipment. 

The new campus will also house Kubota’s newest Midwest Division office, which is an extension of the company’s existing divisional operation structure that provides regional support to Kubota dealers. Kubota’s division offices are located in Suwanee, Ga.; Fort Worth, Texas; Columbus, Ohio; and, Lodi, Calif. and soon to be in Edgerton, Kansas.
