Makita opens new distribution and training center


Makita USA expanded its capabilities with a new distribution and training center located in the city of Wilmer, Texas, just outside Dallas. The new facility, the company’s fourth in the United States, increases Makita’s service capabilities to meet growing demand from users and dealers, according to the company.

“Simply put, we are seeing more demand and it’s pushing our current operations to the limit. The new facility gives us more space and increased operations to meet the needs of our customers,” vice president of operations Joe Blackwell said in a statement.

The new facility is located on nearly 25 acres of land with 227,230 sq. ft. of warehouse space with operational capabilities. It is an expansion of Makita’s current warehouse chain that includes operations in Mount Prospect, Ill., and Buford, Ga., as well as the Makita USA home office in La Mirada, Calif.

“The new location has adjacent space for future growth,” Blackwell said. “Makita is in a constant state of expansion and innovation. As the company moves into new categories, like janitorial and sanitation for example, this new space gives us plenty of room to expand our operations infrastructure.”

It also features a 4,000-sq.-ft. training center, which will offer tailored curriculum and hands-on training.
