Komatsu America Corp., a leading global heavy equipment manufacturer announced the purchase of four branches of Road Machinery, LLC that will become company-owned facilities under the Komatsu Southwest banner.
The four locations – El Paso, Texas, and Carlsbad, Farmington and Albuquerque, N.M. – will support Komatsu’s long-term strategic plans to grow and strengthen the distribution channel. Komatsu America purchased the locations from Arizona-based Road Machinery in a deal that closed on Oct. 5. No other transaction terms will be disclosed.
“We will more than double the investment in equipment, tooling and training at these locations,” said Rod Schrader, CEO, Komatsu America. “We see this as an opportunity to improve the linkage of our customers to our factory experts with added customer support and responsiveness,” Schrader said.
