Kubota Corporation, headquartered in Osaka, Japan, announced Aug. 31, it will donate $1 million in relief funds to include monetary contributions and Kubota equipment to several national and local charitable organizations to aid in the Hurricane Harvey relief efforts.

The company is also committed to helping in the cleanup and restoration efforts by utilizing Kubota construction and tractor equipment where needed in the affected areas.

“Kubota has a long-standing history of providing natural disaster assistance to those in need with financial and volunteer support, and with the use of donated Kubota equipment,” said Masatoshi Kimata, president and representative director of Kubota Corporation.

Masato Yoshikawa, president and CEO of Kubota Tractor Corporation, based in the company's North American headquarters in Grapevine, TX, echoed the sentiment, saying, “As a newly-relocated Texas company, and with a large group of Kubota dealers and employees working and living in this area of the country, we stand ready to help our South Texas and Louisiana neighbors clean up and rebuild the region."

While it is still early to assess the full impact and damage from Hurricane Harvey in South Texas and Louisiana, Kubota has confirmed that all of its dealers and their families and employees are safe. Once they are able, they will safely attempt to visit their locations to survey the damage in hopes of being able to quickly mobilize around relief efforts to be of service to their local communities.
