Kubota Donates to Texas Hurricane Relief

Kubota Tractor Corporation has announced that it will be donating to hurricane relief efforts in south Texas.

The donation was announced yesterday in a ceremony attended by Governor Greg Abbott and Texas A&M University chancellor John Sharp. In the announcement, Kubota said that it plans to donate $1 million in funds and equipment for hurricane relief.

“We have a long history of helping to rebuild communities when disaster strikes, throughout the world. It is truly the Kubota Way to be socially responsible and help our neighbors,” said Todd Stucke, Kubota Tractor Corporation senior vice president of Marketing. “By immediately mobilizing loaned Kubota construction equipment with the help of our local dealers when the catastrophic hurricane struck here in Texas, to today’s announcement of 12 donated skid steer units, we are extremely humbled to be able to fill a need to help rebuild these communities and assist those unfortunately affected in returning to a normal life.”

Following the announcement of the donation, Governor Greg Abbott said that the generosity showed the "character and integrity" of the Kubota Corporation.
