The facility will offer dealer product and service training and replace the company’s current training space in Pendergrass, Georgia.

The 37,500-square-foot facility will feature two service training classrooms and workshop areas, work space for the company’s training department, two flex-space training rooms, two flex-space meeting rooms, a cafeteria and kitchen area 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,” says Jeff Stewart, vice president/general manager of Takeuchi-US.

“Our expectations for the new training center will be to provide relevant and safe equipment training to all of our dealers,” says Clay Eubanks, president, Takeuchi-US.
