Komatsu Mining has announced plans for the construction of a new facility to support the growth of its mining business in Western Canada.
The company plans to invest approximately CAN$40 million to construct an 85000 ft2 sales and service facility in downtown Sparwood, Canada, where the company has been operating for more than 30 years.
Komatsu plans to break ground at the new site in early August, with construction to conclude by the end of 2020.
“We’re excited to be investing in our community and our future,” said Steven Droste, Komatsu’s Regional Manager for Western Canada. “This facility will be a great new place of work for our employees while enhancing our capabilities, so we can continue to provide our customers unrivalled service delivery.”
Komatsu will continue to operate out of its leased facility in Sparwood until the new building is complete. The company purchased the 15 acre parcel for its new facility from the District of Sparwood and is working to prepare the land for development.
“Council and staff have put in a lot of time working with Komatsu to bring this project to fruition,” said Sparwood Mayor David Wilks, “and I can say for everyone involved that we are proud to have Komatsu put down roots and call Sparwood home.”
