Talking about Kubota Management…
Speaking of Kubota management, we had the opportunity some time ago to interview Tony Tonegawa, Vice President Business Unit Engine Europe, who has returned to the headquarters in Osaka after having successfully accomplished his mission. Here is an ‘enlightening’ passage on the strategies of Kubota’s recent past, which are still valid today.
The market strategy to increase the revenues (in particular of the Engine Division) has two main strategies. “The first one – says Tonegawa – is supplying engines to our internal products (tractors, harvesters, green and/or other agricultural equipment and construction machinery). Kubota has decided to enter into the ‘real’ farming market which corresponds to a power range above 200 HP (147kW). Today, we offer 6,1 liters engine for above 150 HP range, and in order to further expand our products offerings, we have just announced the introduction of new 5 liters engine during the ConExpo“.
