The Salina Journal reports the Great Plains/Kubota logo went up on a mammoth building in south Salina, in early August.
Since purchasing Salina-based Great Plains in July 2016, Kubota included Salina among four strategic growth areas in the United States, along with Edgerton in eastern Kansas, and locations in Georgia and Texas.
The rapidly growing company is transforming the 750,000 square-foot structure at 3861 S. Ninth St., into Kubota’s North American Skid Steer Loader (SSL) and Compact Tracked Loader (CTL) Construction Equipment design and manufacturing center.
“Kubota’s commitment to central Kansas is very large and the Construction Equipment power units are a major part of their growth plan in the U.S.,” said Linda Salem, president and CEO at Great Plains.
Production is slated to begin the second half of 2022.
