Komatsu has opened a new $32.2 million spare parts centre at Oyama in Japan, as the manufacturer looks to establish a new global operation model for its spare parts offering.

The Oyama centre has a total floor space of 22,202 m², and is part of the larger Oyama factory which has over 3,000 staff.

The opening of the centre also featured a new global operation centre, a new organization to comprehensively control the sales, production and inventory of spare parts of construction equipment.

Komatsu said it is making group-wide efforts to shorten lead-time of spare parts from plants to customers, “by eliminating the intermediary process for direct linkage between customers and plants, and to dynamically reduce parts inventories worldwide.

“In addition to these efforts, Komatsu is working to steadily introduce this new parts operation model to other parts distribution centres.”

At present, Komatsu operates a total of 18 main parts distribution centers worldwide, 15 of which are overseas, with three in Japan.

In addition to its efforts, Komatsu is also working to introduce this new parts operation model to other parts distribution centres, with current plans calling for the the new model to be introduced at parts distribution centres in Australia and North America, and two in Japan by the end of the 2015 financial year.
