rr1Kubota Canada Limited (KCL), reached a milestone for unit sales in
Canada selling its 10,000th construction machine since the company’s
first excavator sale in 1981.

Kubota Canada started business in 1975 and is a division of Kubota
Corporation. KCL now has more than 150 dealerships in Canada and
specializes in manufacturing compact excavators, wheel loaders, track
carriers, tractors and rough-terrain vehicles.

Headquartered in Markham, Ontario, KCL also has three warehouses and
full support for parts, finance, engineering, distribution, service,
sales and marketing in Canada. This milestone unit was sold by KCL’s
Sudbury, Ontario, dealership, Tracks & Wheels.

The customer that bought the machine, Vale Inco, is a mining company in
Sudbury and has had a long successful relationship with Tracks &
Wheels. In recognition of this milestone, KCL presented a cheque for
$10,000 to Vale Inco which donated the money to the Miners for Cancer
charity.

Since 1996, Miners for Cancer has raised and donated more than $250,000 to the Northern Cancer Research Foundation.
