What does Elk Grove have in common with Suwanee, Ga.; Fort Worth, Texas; Columbus, Ohio; and Edgerton, Kansas?
It is the newest home for a Kubota Tractor Corporation Distribution Center. The new 45-acre facility located in Elk Grove’s Grant Line Business Park hosted a grand opening on December 12. The facility replaces Kubota’s former facility in Lodi, California.
Kubota has invested more than $70 million to bring the new facility online and has expanded to more than 100 employees over the past year, with plans to continue that growth in the coming years. The impressive 631,465-square-foot state-of-the-art facility is built on sustainable principles in keeping with the company’s global mission to use technology to optimize efficient operations. The facility will house offices, training classrooms, and a distribution network for farming, construction, and turf equipment, as well as repair parts destined for Kubota dealers and customers throughout the West.
“We are excited to welcome Kubota’s Western Distribution Center to Elk Grove,” said Elk Grove Mayor Bobbie Singh-Allen at their grand opening event. “This facility will generate an economic ripple effect for the region, benefiting local hotels, restaurants, and retail shops. This significant investment in infrastructure brings job creation, innovation and sustained economic vitality to our community, opening the door for boundless opportunities in the future.”
