Kubota and other Japanese machinery makers to halt Russia operations

Japan, U.S., EU ban exports of high-precision products, citing possible military use

Kubota, Yaskawa and DMG Mori are three of the major Japanese construction equipment and machine tool makers ceasing operations in Russia due to the ongoing conflict in Ukraine.

TOKYO -- Major Japanese construction equipment and machine tool makers, including Kubota and DMG Mori, plan to suspend their equipment supply to customers in Russia, which could deal a blow to that country's mining and auto industries.

Russia depends on imports for 70-80% of its construction equipment and machine tools. Equipment used for mining is especially important for resource development in Russia, and production efficiency of mine development and other activities could decline if replacement parts grow scarce.
