Yanmar America Corp. has moved its corporate headquarters from the Chicago area to Adairsville, Ga. According to Yanmar America’s recently appointed chief operating officer, Tom Calhoun, this new complex will house manufacturing, engineering, marketing and administration activities supporting Yanmar’s North American businesses, including the Construction, Agricultural and Marine divisions.
The Industrial Engine and Parts groups will continue to base their marketing, customer service and applications support operations in Buffalo Grove, Ill.
The consolidation of the corporate activities into Georgia will allow for more effective interfacing between engineering, manufacturing and customer support, Calhoun said.
The Adairsville facility, situated an hour north of Atlanta, includes 480,000 square feet of production space and enough acreage that continued expansion can be readily achieved.
This corporate relocation coincides with the opening of the new Yanmar/Cub Cadet manufacturing facility at the same location, and further displays Yanmar’s commitment to the North American market.
Yanmar is a leading global manufacturer of diesel engines and diesel-powered equipment for the construction, industrial, agricultural and marine markets.
