KUBOTA Brochure - 17 / 23 Pages
In Asia including China and South East Asia, Oceania and
even the Middle East, KUBOTA is promoting its business
expansion by quickly responding to changes in the
market. For example, China is proceeding with industrial
mechanization made necessary by rapid economic
growth. In 1996, KUBOTA launched its combines in the
Chinese market and began local production of the
combines in Suzhou. In addition, KUBOTA has
constructed a new combine factory to enhance
production. KUBOTA has also established a distribution
company in Shanghai for mini excavators in order to
respond to the active promotion of social infrastructure
improvement in China. In Thailand, KUBOTA is
strengthening its sales operations for tractors, tillers, and
combines in response to the growth in agricultural
machinery demand. For the local production of engines
and agricultural machinery, KUBOTA has strengthened
production bases located in Thailand and Indonesia, while
opening offices in India and China in order to procure
parts that enhance cost competitiveness. Furthermore,
KUBOTA has initiated the supply of vertical type diesel
engines to the rapidly growing Chinese industrial and
construction machinery manufacturers. In the Middle
East, in which ductile iron pipes support the lifeline for
people, KUBOTA participated in the construction of
wastewater treatment facilities. In many countries and
areas, including Singapore and other South East Asian
countries in which KUBOTA's pumps are working at water
conveyance facilities, KUBOTA is contributing to food
production and infrastructure improvement.
■ Combine harvester
In China, where combines are operated for significantly longer
hours per day than in Japan, both the combine's high efficiency
and high endurance must be assured. KUBOTA combines already
have a good reputation for being "less trouble despite operation
over long periods". KUBOTA will respond to the growing demand
in China by producing combines locally with a high cost
Demand for tractors is increasing as Thailand's economic growth
continues. KUBOTA anticipates expanding sales, based on
increasing brand recognition gained through the achievements of
KUBOTA tillers. KUBOTA tractors are also popular in Australia and
Korea where replacement demand for higher-graded machines
makes this another exciting prospective market for KUBOTA.
■ Mini excavator
KUBOTA mini-excavators were active on construction sites for the
Beijing Olympics. In China, demand for mini excavators is
expanding with urban development associated with the 2010
Shanghai World Expo and the suburban construction boom.
KUBOTA is steadily extending its sales reach by initiating sales
promotion activities including training sessions.
KUBOTA exports diesel generators to the world. It is also making
efforts to increase the sales of vertical type diesel engines to
Chinese construction and industrial machinery manufacturers.
Meanwhile, KUBOTA horizontal water-cooled diesel engines,
produced in Thailand and Indonesia and used as tiller engines,
enjoy a high market share in the South East Asian market.

■ Submerged membrane system
In Oman, the construction
plan for a large-scale
treatment plant has
adopted this system. Since
the KUBOTA submerged
membrane system blocks
off parasites and Bacillus
coli, treated water can be
used for irrigation. In
addition, it was adopted for
use in a treatment plant
processing 20,000 tons of domestic wastewater per day on a 75,000
people basis in a high-grade resort which will be constructed on an
artificial island off the coast of Dubai, the United Arab Emirates.

■ Large-scale pump system for service water
KUBOTA delivered 10 sets of double-suction centrifugal pumps to
a water treatment plant and service pump station through a
waterworks improvement project for Jakarta, Indonesia. Indonesia
has been suffering from chronic water shortages caused by sharp
seasonal variations in precipitation and falling groundwater levels
resulting from excessive well-digging. Accordingly, improvements
of service water facilities have been an urgent challenge to public
■ Ductile iron pipe
In the Arabian Gulf nations, KUBOTA ductile iron pipes are used as
mains for transferring desalinated water from the coastal
desalination plants to the cities. These pipes are adopted, for
example, for the mains over the entire 60 km length to Doha, Qatar,
140 km to Abu Dhabi, the United Arab Emirates, and 100 km to
