Ontario Construction News staff writer

Kubota Canada has officially opened a new Canadian corporate headquarters and distribution centre in Pickering.

Located in the Pickering Innovation Corridor, the new development includes a 500,000-sq. ft. industrial warehouse and 65,000 sq. ft. of office space, meeting rooms and training facilities on three floors.

“This new facility 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,” Kubota Canada president Yannick Montagano said in a statement.

Construction was funded by an $80 million investment from Kubota, which continues to expand its presence in Canada since it was first founded in 1975. The company spent about $80 million to purchase the land and construct the new headquarters.

“The City of Pickering is thrilled that Kubota Canada Ltd., chose Pickering’s Innovation Corridor as the home of its new Canadian corporate headquarters and distribution facility,” said Dave Ryan, Mayor of Pickering. “In addition to this $80 million investment and the 200 jobs it will bring in phase one of this development, I am equally as excited that this project has helped to kick start and attract new and additional industrial and commercial investment to the corridor.

Pickering was selected for easy access to highways, affordable housing for employees, as well as equipment testing and training areas.

“I am thrilled that Kubota Canada Ltd has chosen Pickering as the location for this new state-of-the-art facility. This a vital part of our mission to strengthen our provincial construction, agriculture, commercial and residential sectors,” said Peter Bethlenfalvy, MPP for Pickering-Uxbridge.

“Kubota Canada Ltd.’s commitment to Pickering and our province is yet another demonstration that this is the best place in Ontario to do business and we are so pleased to have them put down deeper roots in the Pickering community.”
