Kubota Agricultural Machinery India Pvt.,Ltd. (KAI) , the Indian subsidiary of Kubota Corporation, today 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 Mr. Yasukazu KAMADA, General Manager,
Engine Division, Kubota Corporation.
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 4 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.” Mr. Kamada added.
