Kubota Corp. to create 200 jobs in Jackson County

ATLANTA — Gov. Nathan Deal said that Osaka, Japan-based Kubota Corp. is expanding its Georgia manufacturing operations in Jefferson in Jackson County with construction of a new $73 million manufacturing facility – a move that will create 200 new jobs. 

“Kubota’s decision to expand its presence in Jackson County is a great indicator of the success this company has found in Georgia,” Deal said in a news release. “This expansion is a vote of confidence for our welcoming business environment, skilled workforce and high-performing logistics network that helps global companies like Kubota service the vastly important U.S. market.”

The new 500,000-square-foot Kubota manufacturing plant will be located on the same 88-acre site as the existing Kubota Industrial Equipment (KIE) corporation facility in Jefferson. The plant will feature a production capacity of 22,000 compact tractors per year. Construction of the facility will begin in early 2012 with full production of tractors scheduled for January 2013.
