The KUBOTA Corporation was founded in 1890 by Gonshiro Kubota in Osaka, Japan. The company’s roots go back to the time of the industrial revolution, when many technical developments took place which still influence our lives today. Although initially the emphasis was still on the manufacture of cast-iron pipes for water lines in order to contain and prevent the spread of infectious diseases with clean drinking water, in 1922, the firm presented its first kerosene-fuelled engine. In the mid-1940s, Kubota expanded its range to include agricultural machinery. Construction machinery, tractors, combine harvesters, mini-excavators and incinerators were added over time. The product range of the Kubota Group is rounded out by the business domains of generators, drinking water treatment, water pumps and recycling.
Casting technology was and still is one of the central pillars of Kubota. All the crankcases and cylinder heads for manufacturing engines are produced in the in-house foundry. There, experts in their fields work with long-term success to meet the ongoing new casting challenges facing engine designers even in large-scale production when producing complicated cast parts with a consistently high level of quality and precision.
The KUBOTA Corporation markets their branded products in more than 130 countries worldwide (more information at www.kubota-global.net).
