Kubota Corporation (株式会社クボタ, Kabushiki-kaisha Kubota) is a tractor and heavy equipment manufacturer based in Osaka, Japan. One of its notable contributions was to the construction of the Solar Ark.[4] The company was established in 1890.

The company produces many products including tractors and agricultural equipment, engines, construction equipment, vending machines, pipe, valves, cast metal, pumps and equipment for water purification, sewage treatment and air conditioning.

Kubota engines are in both diesel and gasoline or spark ignition forms, ranging from the tiny 0.276 liter engine to 6.1 liter engine, in both air-cooled and-liquid cooled designs, naturally-aspirated and forced induction. Cylinder configurations are from single cylinder to inline six cylinders, with single cylinder to four cylinder are the most common. Those engines are widely used in agricultural equipment, construction equipment, tractors, and marine propulsion.

The company is listed on the first section of Tokyo Stock Exchange and is a constituent of the TOPIX 100[5] and Nikkei 225[6]

Founded in February 1890 by Gonshiro Kubota in Osaka as the Oide foundry (大出鋳造所, Ōide Chūzō-jo), the business changed name in 1897 and became the Kubota ironwork (久保田鉄工所, Kubota tekkō-jo) working on pipes, taps, and fire fight materials. Twenty years later, production moved to a new plant in Amagasaki in the Hyōgo prefecture.
