KUSCO is 100% affiliate of Kubota Corporation established in 1995, by having taking over the stocks of its partner, Rasna Japan Corporation. The deal was done in exchange of giving up its exclusive sales right on MECHANICA, as Rasna was about to go public. KUSCO was successful in gaining exclusive sales right of innovative 3D solid modeling CAD system, or SolidWorks, with second round of investment to the developer. KUSCO is well known as a reseller of package software that is used by the design engineers and analysts for manufacturers, with the sales right of prominent technologies from the US and Europe. Japanese users highly evaluated KUSCOfs capability of selecting creative technology, which made it possible to market KUSCOfs products into the broad range of engineers with their ease of use and affordable price. The evaluation was also endorsed by KUSCOfs aggressive sales force and consistent technical support. The combination of the concept and activities for a decade made the company quite unique in CAD/CAM/CAE/PLM market in Japan.

KUSCO is also an investor and exclusive reseller of engineering software for design offices for manufacturers in Japanese market, many of which collaboratively work with 3D CAD systems, especially SolidWorks. KUSCO recently merged R&D unit from its parent namely KSWAD specialized in Pre-Post processor, CAM Kernel and API technologies. The unit consists of KUSCOfs 50 employees including 25 engineering staffs, and produces annual revenue of 15 $ million.

KSI is a system integrator that specializes in manufacturing and infrastructure construction solutions that owns comprehensive capabilities for system development and integration, data processing, and storage, and outsourcing services throughout internet service for Kubota Corporation, its group companies, and suppliers. It provides such services also to governmental organizations as well as major industriesf accounts. KSI is categorized as guser originatedh system integrator, whose specialty and competitive edge comes from the knowledge fostered during the course of the development and the operation systems of its parentfs total management solution systems. Its revenue counts as much as $100 millions, with 500 employees and 200 subcontractorsf engineers.

Rasna, Japan Corporation was a 50/50 % joint venture of Kubota Corporation and Rasna Corporation, a venture which is based in Silicon Valley and funded by Kubota together with American venture capitalists. Rasna developed an engineering package software in design analysis field with an ambitious intent of market creation by selling FEA package to a broader number of mechanical design engineers instead of a limited number of high end analysts. It was so successful that it was close to go public, but decided to be purchased by PTC (Parametric Technology Corporation), a major CAD system company.
