About us

In the late 1980s, Kubota Corporation, one of the leading engineering companies in the environmental field
in Japan, developed the KUBOTA Submerged Membrane Unit® (SMU), which is an innovative and reliable flat
sheet membrane technology incorporated into the activated sludge process.

Since then, Kubota SMU has been applied to treat sewage and industrial wastewater all over the world.
As of July 2008, the number of installations reached 2,948 including 622 overseas.

Since 2001, Kubota Corporation has contributed to the improvement of water environment in North America.
In 2005, in order to offer better support and keep responding to customers' voice,
Kubota Corporation opened a new office of KUBOTA Membrane USA Corporation located in Bellevue,
WA, USA.

Fortunately, Kubota SMU has been selected by many customers, and our market has been expanded
into South America as well.
