“There’s something for everyone in this move,” said Rod Schrader, Chairman and CEO Komatsu America Corp.
“Current employees will enjoy the building amenities and convenience to major transportation, the new floorplan supports the company’s efforts to breakdown team and workstream silos, and the move helps Komatsu remain competitive and attractive to prospective employees living in the city and studying at nearby universities.”
Komatsu Ltd, parent company of Komatsu America, established a permanent presence in the US in 1970, with the first headquarters in San Francisco. For the past 11 years the headquarters has been at Rolling Meadows, IL.
