Gov. Nathan Deal joined local and company officials Monday to celebrate the grand opening of Kubota’s new $73 million manufacturing facility in Jefferson. The plant brings 200 jobs to Jackson County.
The 522,000-square-foot plant on the 88-acre site recently began production of Kubota’s 30- to 50-horsepower compact tractor models.
“Georgia is proud to join with Kubota today in celebrating one of our state’s greatest business success stories,” Deal said. “Kubota’s record of consistent growth has contributed to the quality of life for countless Georgia families as well as the overall health of our economy. This expansion will further help to make Georgia the No. 1 place in the country in which to do business.”
