Arnold’s of Kimball celebrates Kubota Tractor Corporation’s 40th anniversary at the company’s annual meeting

Al Schramm from Arnold’s of Kimball, Inc. of Kimball, attended Kubota Tractor Corporation’s 2012 National Dealer Meeting in Dallas, Texas, this week to celebrate Kubota’s 40th anniversary in the United States.

More than 1,000 Kubota dealers from across the country joined together to celebrate the company milestone and to receive a first look at all 2013 product enhancements, highlighted by the “Kubota Kommander,” Kubota’s first zero-turn mower designed specifically for homeowners seeking professional-grade mowing results.

Kubota’s “40 Years Strong” theme recognized the company’s dealers for their contributions to its overall growth and success over the last four decades. During the meeting, representatives from Arnold’s of Kimball, Inc. also attended field demonstrations and classroom sessions, gaining hands-on operator experience with Kubota’s products.

“As we commemorate 40 years in America, we owe so much of our success and continued market growth to our dealers,” said Mr. Yuichi (Ken) Kitao, president, Kubota Tractor Corporation. “We are proud to reach this milestone with the support of our dealer network and customers. It is a true testament to our innovation, quality, value and commitment to an excellent customer experience.”

For Kubota’s customers, the company recently announced the “40 Years Strong Dream Contest” on its Facebook page where one lucky Kubota fan will win a 4-wheel drive L3800 Kubota tractor, one of the models set to be produced out of the newly expanded Jefferson, Ga., facility, scheduled for completion in early 2013.
