Takeuchi-US held a ground-breaking ceremony on Oct. 11 for a new training facility set to open in spring 2020. The new center will allow dealers from North America and around the globe to gain knowledge about Takeuchi products, and offer year-round service training to its growing dealer network.

The company is expanding from its current training environment, which the manufacturer has used since relocating to Pendergrass, Ga., in 2006. The new building will be 37,500 sq. ft. on 9.45 acres. It will feature two dedicated service training classrooms and workshop areas, workspace for the training department, two flex-space training rooms, two flex-space meeting rooms, a cafeteria and a kitchen area that can hold 90 people, and a 7,500-sq.-ft. covered demo area.

"This new training facility will give us the opportunity to train more dealer staff, conduct year-round training and take our training programs to the next level. Takeuchi is dedicated to providing cutting-edge training to best educate our dealers, and we are very excited to open the doors and invite our dealer network to participate in this exciting next step with us," said Jeff Stewart, vice president/general manager of Takeuchi-US.

"This signifies the growth of Takeuchi and all that we have accomplished thus far with our training efforts. Our expectations for the new training center will be to provide relevant and safe equipment training to all of our dealers," said Clay Eubanks, president Takeuchi -US. "By building this new training center, it allows us to invest in our community and bring more jobs and opportunities to Jackson County."
