Kubota Tractor Corporation Unveils Their North American Headquarters in Grapevine, Texas

Kubota-600-423

Kubota Tractor Corporation unveiled its new North American Headquarters building in Grapevine today with a ribbon cutting ceremony with Governor Greg Abbott, Masatoshi Kimata, President and Representative Director of the Kubota Group, along with State and local officials.  The company's move to Texas from Torrance, California, is the most significant change it has undertaken in its successful 45-year history in the U.S.

The Building:
Kubota's new Corporate Office facility was built with sustainability features designed specifically to qualify for the LEED Gold certification. The building features a "net zero" system for water use, which means the building's design collects all rainwater and uses it for irrigation as well as supplemental fortification of the river between the Research and Development building and office buildings. 

All existing trees that were native to the site were retained during construction. Additionally, all of the materials used in the project were selected based upon recycling content, with over 75% made from recycled material. The construction of the project contained less than 10% of materials going to a sanitary waste facility - 90 percent of all other materials were recycled.  Photo Credit: Mike Reyher
