Kubota & Buhler Hook Up On Big Tractors
In a year already full of interesting and intriguing deals and changes, Japan’s Kubota Corp. announced it will utilize the development and production capabilities of Russian-owned, Canada-based, Buhler Industries Inc. for a new series of larger output tractors.
Kubota has long been thought to be interested in the higher horsepower North America agricultural tractor market. This has spawned speculation that Kubota Tractor Corp., Grapevine, Tex., would buy someone or seek a joint venture or merger. Kubota Tractor is the U.S. marketer and distributor of Kubota Corp. engineered and manufactured machinery and equipment.
