Komatsu Equipment Co. (KEC), the flagship dealership for Komatsu America Corp., will build a 189,000-sq.-ft. service center on 30 acres in Elko, Nevada.

The new building will include a six-bay, full service construction equipment and mechanical rebuild shop; a heavy welding and fabricating shop, large enough for rebuild and manufacturing of large shovel and truck structures and manufacturing of truck bodies; a heavy machine shop with large, horizontal milling and boring machine, plus vertical lathe capability; and a construction equipment and rental machine yard with easy access to Interstate 80.

Planned for completion in early 2020, the facility will combine the staff and functions of three existing buildings. When operational, the new customer support and service center will be capable of providing expanded support to construction and mining machines across western North America, Komatsu America says.

“The new building offers an exciting opportunity to bring together local employees of two major Komatsu subsidiaries: KEC and Komatsu Mining Corp., into one integrated organization,” says John Pfisterer, KEC president. “Collaborating directly in a shared, state-of-the-art space, these combined teams will enhance customer support and operational efficiency.”
