GRAPEVINE - Kubota Tractor Corp. and Kubota Credit Corp. will move their headquarters from Torrance, Calif., to a 25-acre site northeast of Grapevine Mills mall on city-owned property.

The companies, subsidiaries of Kubota Corp. in Osaka, Japan, are under contract to buy the property from Grapevine, where they plan a 200,000-sf research and development and corporate center, said Bob Farley, the city’s economic development director.

Kubota said it will move to Grapevine — at Texas 121, Grapevine Mills Blvd. and Grapevine Mills Pkwy — in phases and wants to finish the relocation in about 18 months.

The headquarters move will put Kubota’s executives and professional staff closer to its major markets and its manufacturing, assembly and distribution facilities in Georgia and Kansas. Being in Texas will help Kubota respond faster to market and industry changes, the company said.

Kubota Tractor is the U.S. marketer and distributor of Kubota-engineered and -made machinery and equipment, performance-matched implements, compact and utility-class construction equipment, consumer lawn and garden equipment, hay tools and spreaders, commercial turf products and utility vehicles.
