The new state-of-the-art facility will serve as a distribution center, and will also include a sales and training center, customer service resources, and a Factory Service Center. The location has adjacent space for future expansion up to 800,000 sq.ft.

Additionally, the manufacturing and assembly plant in Buford is one of ten Makita manufacturing facilities worldwide.
