Makita U.S.A. Inc. has purchased 80 acres in Georgia, northeast of Atlanta in Hall County, for future planned development.
The purchase follows the August 2020 opening of a new distribution, training and service facility in Reno, Nev., and the 2017 opening of a similar facility in Wilmer, Texas. Makita’s distribution chain also includes operations in Mt. Prospect, Ill.; Buford, Ga., and La Mirada, Calif., according to the company.
“Business continues to grow, and we are continuing to invest in the future,” Joe Blackwell, senior vice president of operations, said in a statement. “With the largest cordless lithium-ion tool system in the world, the adaption of our battery-powered products continues to accelerate from power tools to outdoor power equipment and beyond. This planned expansion will further support our customers, while creating more jobs in the region.”
