Komatsu moves SK1020-5 skid steer production to South Carolina

In an effort to speed delivery of parts to customers, Komatsu America has moved production of SK1020-5 skid steers sold in the United States from the company’s Italy production facility to its Newberry, S.C., plant. “We want to make sure that the American contractor is able work comfortably in our SK1020-5 knowing that it was produced here in the United States and that parts, when needed, are available from a local manufacturing source,” said Bob Lessner, product manager.
