Komatsu America Corp. purchased four branches of Road Machinery LLC that will become company-owned facilities under the Komatsu Southwest banner.

One branch is in El Paso, Texas, while the others are in New Mexico, specifically in Albuquerque, Carlsbad and Farmington. These sites will support Komatsu’s long-term strategic plans to grow and strengthen the distribution channel.

“We will more than double the investment in equipment, tooling and training at these locations,” says Rod Schrader, CEO of 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.”

Komatsu America Corp. is a U.S. subsidiary of Komatsu Ltd., a manufacturer and supplier of earthmoving equipment.
