Makita Opens New Facility

Makita USA inc. is headquartered in La Mirada, California, and the company has just expanded its distribution, training and service capabilities with a new 600,000 sq. ft. state-of-the-art facility in Reno, Nevada. The location facilitates nationwide 2-day ground coverage, so customers can receive products faster. The new Reno facility is a $50 million investment. This is the company’s fifth in the U.S.A. and follows the recent opening of a similar facility in the Dallas region. The Reno location has already had a soft launch and will be fully online this fall. It is located on nearly 50 acres of land with 600,000 square feet of warehouse space, and plenty of room for future expansion. The new facility includes a detached 28,000 square foot state-of-the-art training center for dealers. A new Factory Service Center is targeted to open there in late fall 2020, and that will be four times larger in square footage than any other Makita Service Center in the U.S.
