Takeuchi-US will open a new training facility in Spring 2020 that will give its dealers opportunities for year-round service training. The company broke ground for the center last month.

The new facility expands the company’s training capabilities, offering 37,500 square feet on 9.45 acres in Pendergrass, Georgia. It will contain 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-square-foot covered demonstration 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,” said Jeff Stewart, VP/general manager, in a prepared statement. “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.”

Clay Eubanks, president, said in a statement:

“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. By building this new training center, it allows us to invest in our community and bring more jobs and opportunities to Jackson County.”
