Makita U.S.A., Inc. is continuing its commitment to future growth in the U.S. market with the purchase of 80 acres in  Georgia. The land, located northeast of Atlanta in Hall County,  is the target for planned future development to address continuing growth in the United States. 

“Business  continues  to  grow,  and  we  are  continuing  to  invest  in  the  future,”  said  Joe  Blackwell,  senior  vice  president  operations.  “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.”

Over  the  past  three  years  Makita  has  made  significant  investments  in  the  U.S.A. The Atlanta-area purchase follows the August 2020 opening of a new distribution, training and service facility in Reno, NV, and the 2017 opening of a similar facility in Wilmer, TX. Makita’s distribution chain also includes operations in Mt. Prospect, IL, Buford, GA, and La  Mirada, CA.  Additionally,  the  manufacturing  plant  in  Buford  is  one  of  ten  Makita  manufacturing facilities worldwide.
