KUBOTA AT A GLANCE
ALWAYS PROVIDING WHAT SOCIETY TRULY NEEDS
Kubota started in 1890 as a small foundry. Our founder Gonshiro Kubota believed, “Our products should not only be technically excellent, but also useful for the good of society.” Based on this philosophy, we have consistently made products that society truly needs. Today our manufacturing contributes to the fields essential for daily life – food, water, and the environment – and supports both industry and individual lives around the world.
