New Delhi [India], Oct 3 (NewsVoir): Kubota Agricultural Machinery India Pvt. Ltd. (KAI), the Indian subsidiary of Kubota Corporation has announced start of sales of industrial engines for OEMs in addition to current product portfolio that consist of tractors, rice planters, harvesters and power tillers.
Industrial engines to OEMs in India had been previously sold directly from Kubota Corporation in Osaka, Japan.
"India is a strategic market for us, foreseeing continuous growth in off-road engine market especially for constructions and industrial machinery. Establishing an engine sales base in India had been our target as a big step to solidify our presence in India," said GM Engine Division, Kubota Corporation, Yasukazu Kamada.
As the awareness for the conservation of the global environment has increased, emission standards for industrial engines have become more stringent and so has it in India, expecting Bharat Stage IV to be in force in 2020.
"With our experience from North American and European markets where emissions regulations are more stringent than that of India, we are confident to be able to support OEMs in India to correspond to the foreseen emissions regulations renewal," added Kamada.
"This is a big milestone for KAI after 10 years since its inauguration. We are fully committed to build strong relationships with OEMs and engine business partners in India for the further growth in future," said MD of KAI, Akira Kato.
With this new engine sales base, Kubota strives to offer OEMs close and reliable support throughout product life-cycle. (NewsVoir)
