The Elko, Nevada Komatsu Facility is built in a campus environment with an existing Komatsu building across the street. This new facility will be instrumental in providing service, sales, and rental of Komatsu and subsidiary company equipment on a massive scale that is needed for the continued development of the gold mines in the area. Tilt-up panels facilitate a durable, insulated composite wall structure on a massive scale. The size of earth-moving equipment Komatsu fabricates and maintains is so large that this facility is monumental in size. It is a modern state-of-the-art industrial and office facility with welding, machine, and CE shops that include:
- Shops with 60-foot clear height
- Three 150-ton cranes
- 63 weld stations
- A sophisticated smoke-evac system
- Paint booths
- Steel lathe machines
- Support rooms and systems
The project has two phases for two separate, adjacent buildings: shop (Phase I) and a two-story office (Phase II). The shop completed October 2019, and the office completed January 2020.
