Since 2011, David has been a full time member of the Training Team. Makita has dedicated Training Facilities at our factory and offices in Buford, Georgia and Wilmer, Texas. At these locations, Makita hosts thousands of people annually in small group setting to help educate and familiarize them on the vast array of Makita Products. One of the primary aspects of Makita Trainings is to allow for the “hands on” use of Makita Products. We feel strongly that if you “try a Makita” you will “buy a Makita”.
