March 23, 2023 – Komatsu today announced plans for a construction project adding a new, nearly 50,000-square-foot warehouse to its service center campus in Elko, Nevada. The warehouse will expand local parts support for mining and construction customers in the Nevada region.
The new building will include:
“The new, state-of-the-art warehouse will allow us to more efficiently serve our customers and partners in the region and improve the overall experience with Komatsu,” said Josh Wagner, VP & GM North America Mining Distribution for Komatsu. “This additional investment in our Elko-area facilities will not only enhance our commitment to customers, but also provide employees an improved work environment and opportunities for future employees.”
Planned for completion in early 2024, the new warehouse will be located adjacent to Komatsu’s 189,000-square-foot (57,600-square-meter) $47 million state-of-the-art Elko service center, built in 2019. The service center has expanded the company's ability to support construction equipment and large mining equipment including haul trucks, hydraulic shovels, electric rope shovels and mining support equipment. The new warehouse will replace an existing warehouse on the site.
The Elko facility currently employs approximately 160 employees with anticipated growth to approximately 180 employees over the next two years.
