Kubota Engine Expands Latin American Footprint | Construction News

Kubota Engine America is increasing its footprint in Latin America by collaborating with key partners.

The engine maker has already added 24 distributors in more than 20 countries to its growing network.

Kubota’s growth is fueled by a dedicated Latin America development team that has spent the last two years identifying the best distributors to meet local needs and strategically planning to bring and support Kubota’s reliable Japanese technology to more people.

Kubota Latin America sales manager Greg Reaves says this is just the beginning. “Kubota is now the closest and highest quality option for many Latin American rental fleets and other compact equipment users who need us most. Kubota engines, parts and generators are crucial in helping an increasing number of developing communities build better infrastructure, civilization and culture. As the heart of most compact equipment, Kubota diesel power provides an industry best cost- benefit to the end user and the most reliable solution for OEMs,” he said.

While Kubota previously had distributors in Latin America, expanding its network will improve response time, strengthen personal relationships and eliminate language barriers.  As the world’s most reliable engine manufacturer, Kubota is the only one in Latin America to offer high quality products backed by local support. Some countries already benefiting include Argentina, Brazil, and Bolivia.

“We can now provide service in-person, with Kubota trained eyes diagnosing or repairing products, and increase training opportunities for distributors and their local customers. Our support will reduce downtime and ultimately save communities important time, money and resources,” Reaves said. “Instead of relying on companies overseas, Kubota is closer than ever.”

Kubota has added both engine and generator distributors to its network.
