Kubota have recently announced that mass production of their new M7 series tractor will begin this coming April (2015) at the new state-of-the-art Kubota Farm Machinery Europe S.A.S., manufacturing company in France.
Kubota recognise the significance of the European and North American agriculture markets and this factory will satisfy the demands of these markets in addition to other agricultural regions throughout the world.
M7 Development background:
* Kubota Corporation’s global position is to support the world by contributing to the development of “food, water and the environment” which are essential for human existence. In agricultural machinery in particular, Kubota has steadily expanded business in Japan and Asia through rice cultivation while in Europe and the Americas with vegetable and fruit, livestock as well as grain, forage and corn production
* As part of Kubota’s commitment to “food, water and the environment” it was essential that Kubota expanded the current equipment line to satisfy the diverse and changing global needs of agriculture. Therefore Kubota is committed to medium and long-term investments making large scale upland farming a strategic priority around the world
* Furthering a commitment to large scale upland farming, Kubota finalised the acquisition of Kverneland ASA in 2012, an agricultural implement manufacturer headquartered in Europe, with special expertise in precision farming technologies. The design and function of the new M7 Series tractor has benefited greatly from this newly acquired knowledge base and our technology developed in Japan
* In 2013, Kubota established a company in France to manufacture the M7 Series farm tractors
