$80M facility at Pickering's Innovation Corridor
October 12, 2022 By Turf & Rec
Kubota Canada Ltd. has opened a new $80-million Canadian corporate headquarters and distribution facility at Pickering, Ont.’s Innovation Corridor.
This new facility, which comprises 500,000 square feet of industrial warehouse space and 65,000 square feet of office, meeting and state-of-the-art training space on three floors, has allowed the company to expand its presence in Canada since it was first founded in 1975.
“Kubota Canada has established itself as one of the country’s premier tractor and equipment distributors during our proud 47-year history,” Yannick Montagano, president of Kubota Canada, said. “This new facility in the Pickering Innovation Corridor is a continuation of our commitment to the Canadian market – to our customers, our dealers, our partners and our employees – as we expand our solutions in the agriculture, construction, commercial and residential markets.”
Attendees at the official opening ceremony included global Kubota representatives, elected officials from Canada’s three levels of government and representatives of the Japanese government.
“Our government is pleased to welcome Kubota Canada to its new home in the Pickering Innovation Corridor and to see the results of the company’s $80 million job-creating investment,” Doug Ford, premier of Ontario, said. “This investment will help Kubota Canada continue to distribute the equipment that allows our workers to build communities and grow fresh food here in Ontario. By reducing red tape and lowering the cost of doing business, we will continue to attract top tier investment that benefits Ontarians.”
This new facility comes at a time of substantial investment for Kubota globally, as the company also recently opened a new 280-acre Research and Development Centre in the state of Georgia, built to meet the needs of Canadian and U.S. customers.
