Great Plains Manufacturing, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Kubota North America, today announced a $53 million expansion project and 750,000-square-foot building purchase to further invest in its Salina, Kansas, operations.

The building is an existing facility in Salina that will become available after July 2021. The company will launch operations in the new facility by the end of 2021 in a phased approach, beginning with Kubota’s compact track loaders, the SVL65. 

“Today’s announcement demonstrates our continued commitment to American’s heartland and especially to our city of Salina, Kansas, where we have proudly done business for more than 44 years,” said Linda Salem, president and CEO of Great Plains. “We will plan to add approximately 130 new manufacturing jobs to our already 1,450-strong Kansan employee base as we scale up our operations to meet the growing demand for Kubota equipment.”
 
“Increasing the capacity of our operations in Kansas will enable us to achieve even greater operational efficiencies, expand our footprint in the Midwest, enhance our logistic capabilities to better service new and existing markets, and continue on our path to becoming a leading company within our industry,” said Haruyuki (Harry) Yoshida, president and CEO of Kubota North America and Kubota Tractor Corporations.

The Salina announcement is the latest in a series of Midwest investments, including the most recent Great Plains’ purchase of a 350,000-square-foot Abilene production facility, which opened for operations earlier this year and further expands operations there to produce Kubota and Land Pride branded products.
