SDF: No Kubota takeover
SAME Deutz-Fahr has rejected rumours that Japanese firm Kubota is in negotiations to buy out the Italian firm.
According to SDF, these rumours have been circulating the internet but it denies there are any negotiations under way and adds that there has never been any contact between SDF and Kubota in this regard.
These rumours follow on from the buyout of Norwegian firm Kverneland, where Case New Holland and another Chinese firm battled it out for the Scandinavian agricultural machinery manufacturer's business.
Tractor brands of Same, Deutz-Fahr, Lamborghini and Hurlimann are all manufactured and marketed by SDF.
