Makita acquires Atlanta area property

Makita U.S.A. announced the purchase of 80 acres of land located in Hall County Georgia northeast of Atlanta for planned future development.

“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.”

The Atlanta-area purchase follows the August 2020 opening of a new distribution, training and service facility in Reno, Nevada, and the 2017 opening of a similar facility in Wilmer, Texas. Makita’s distribution chain also includes operations in Mt. Prospect, Illinois, Buford, Georgia, and La Mirada, California. Additionally, the manufacturing plant in Buford is one of 10 Makita manufacturing facilities worldwide.
