Advancing Open Innovation, Accelerating the Creation of New Business, Products and Services – Establishment of Dedicated “Innovation Centers” in Japan and Europe.
Kubota will pledge € 250,000 to help rebuild parts of the Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris after it was severely damaged in a fire on the 15th of April.
Kubota has a strong link with France and Paris and by donating this amount, we want to express our support in restoring this iconic building in Paris, France.
In 1974, Kubota established its sales company, Kubota Europe S.A.S in Argenteuil, and with a distribution center in Cavaillon, selling, distributing and servicing our agricultural machinery, construction machinery and engines. In 2013, we started Kubota Farm Machinery Europe S.A.S in Bierne for the manufacturing of our large-scale farm & industrial tractors. In addition, for our implement business, we have Kverneland Group Les Landes-Genusson S.A.S, Kverneland Group France S.A.S. in Saint-Jean-de-Braye and our European distribution center Kverneland Group Metz S.A.S. Within the framework of Kubota’s ongoing growth in France, we also start a new R&D Center located in Crépy-en-Valois, France which will be fully operational in 2020.
