Pickering is now the home of Kubota Canada.
Company representatives and government officials were on-hand Wednesday in the north of the city to unveil Kubota’s new Canadian headquarters.
The facility, which cost $80-million to build, covers 500,000 square feet of warehouse space, in addition to its offices.
Officials are promising 200 new jobs for the area, with another phase of development on the horizon.
“This new facility in the Pickering Innovation Corridor is a continuation of our commitment to the Canadian market, to our customers, our dealers, our partners and our employees as we expand our solutions in the agriculture, construction, commercial and residential markets,” said Kubota Canada President Yannick Montagano.
“Our government is pleased to welcome Kubota Canada to its new home in the Pickering Innovation Corridor and to see the results of the company’s $80 million job-creating investment,” said Ontario Premier Doug Ford.
