Kubota Canada commits to parts availability for 20+ years

Kubota Canada has been introducing groundbreaking tractor and utility vehicles for construction, commercial and residential use for 36 years. With an industry leading reputation for equipment that lasts; Kubota is committed to keeping parts available for 20+ years; assuring the local Kubota dealer has quick access to the parts their customers need. That's great news for Kubota customers, but presents quite a challenge for Kubota's 60,000 square foot parts distribution center. With 20+ years of legacy parts and additional inventory for new models introduced every year the parts inventory at Kubota's part center in Markham, Ontario has steadily grown to over 78,000 SKUs.   "Our parts promise to our customers presents a challenge as we have to inventory quite a few slow moving parts that are only picked a few times a year or in many cases not even once per year. But when a customer needs it, we have to be able to supply it," says Doug Ward, Logistics Manager, "and the system we have in place allows us to do just that."
