Equipment Manufacturer Kubota Plans $85 Million Expansion in Georgia

Tractor and equipment manufacturer Kubota recently announced plans to build a new $85 million engineering and design center near its manufacturing plant in northern Georgia.

The company last week announced the purchase of some 300 acres in Gainesville, Georgia; state officials said it was the Japanese manufacturer’s fourth major expansion in the state in the past six years.
