The four locations — El Paso, Texas, Carlsbad, Albuquerque and Farmington, New Mexico — will support Komatsu’s long-term strategic plans to grow and strengthen the distribution channel, the company said.
“We will more than double the investment in equipment, tooling and training at these locations,” said Rod Schrader, CEO, Komatsu America. “We see this as an opportunity to improve the linkage of our customers to our factory experts with added customer support and responsiveness.”
