Kubota Tractor Corp. signed a letter of intent to purchase 203 acres in Edgerton, Kan., to build two 1-million-square-foot distribution centers to move service parts and equipment through the supply chain.
Often corporations outsource the operations of warehouses to third-party logistics providers. Kubota did not respond to calls for comment on how it manages the supply chain.
“For Kubota to make this kind of reinvestment in Edgerton is a testament of the value our location brings to companies who need to easily connect to the global supply chain,” Edgerton Mayor Donald Roberts said in a statement.
“Kubota already employs 150 Kansans in Edgerton, and the expansion could add another 150-200 on top of that,” Kansas Gov. Sam Brownback said.
