GAINESVILLE, Ga. — Rep. Doug Collins (R-Ga.) yesterday visited Kubota Manufacturing of America Corporation (KMA) in Gainesville to tour the facility. During his visit, Collins sat down with Phil Sutton, Vice President of Kubota Manufacturing of America Corporation, and more than a dozen other employees to discuss the impacts of coronavirus, market outlook for Kubota, and how Kubota has worked to implement extra health and safety measures in response to the outbreak.

“From our farmers to our grocery store workers, every aspect of our food supply chain is working overtime to continue putting food on our tables right now, and Kubota is a critical component of that effort,” said Collins. “I’m proud of their commitment to putting their workers first in the midst of this pandemic, and I’m proud of their Georgia-made product that supports our farmers each and every day.”

With a few simple, but effective health and safety measures in place, our folks have been committed to supporting critical infrastructure and especially our farmers everyday. We are KUBOTA STRONG!”
