Kubota to double Chinese output capacity for tractors

Kubota sees Chinese demand for tractors remaining firm in the coming years despite the decelerating economy.

OSAKA -- Japanese farm machinery maker Kubota plans to double production capacity for mainstay tractors in China to 10,000 units a year by setting up a new factory.

The new facility will be built next to an existing farm equipment plant in the city of Suzhou for about 6 billion yen ($56 million). Its floor space will total roughly 30,000 sq. meters. Construction is scheduled to begin in autumn, with production expected to start a year later. Manufacturing operations at a nearby rental factory will move to the new facility upon its completion.
