By Lewis Tyler27 January 2023
Bobcat has announced the opening of a new aftermarket parts distribution center in Atlanta to meet growing demand for equipment.
The company says the new facility is “strategically located” with accessibility to major airports and highways and will enhance service options, increase inventory and enable faster delivery of parts to customers.
The 396,000-square-foot facility, located in the West Fulton Commerce Park (1850 Oak Lawn Ave.) was officially opened on January 25, with Mike Ballweber, president of Bobcat North America and Fabio Duque, regional vice president Americas cutting the ribbon.
Ballweber said, “The opening of this new facility in Atlanta is reflective of Bobcat’s growth and our ongoing commitment to providing a level of service befitting of a longtime, industry leader.
“This facility is intentionally located in Georgia so we can support the businesses of our customers and dealer partners throughout the Southeast region and beyond – all while providing them with greater parts availability and faster deliveries.”
The new facility is the second the company has opened in recent months, alongside its new Reno, Nevada facility which was opened last year.
Brad Claus, Bobcat Company vice president of aftermarket parts and service, said, “This new facility demonstrates our continued commitment to providing best-in-class uptime and service to our customers across the United States and Canada.
“We know these investments – first in Reno and now in Atlanta – will positively impact our dealer network and equipment owners by ensuring we can deliver the right parts at the right time in a more expedited manner thanks to geography and proximity.”
