Kubota entered the US market in 1969 with a small 4WD tractor. Since the companies innovative products have grown it into the primary force in the compact tractor business. This success drove the creation of Kubota Manufacturing of America (KMA) in 1988 and Kubota Industrial Equipment in 2006 (KIE). These two facilities are responsible for building 40% of the US products. Today Kubota builds not just small tractors, but also farm tractors, utility vehicles, lawn equipment and light construction machinery.
