Construction gear manufacturer Kla is building a construction kit in Vancouver that will be able to handle construction and remodeling tasks at its construction site in Denver.
The Kla Construction Equipment team will use a $3 million investment in a 1,000-square-foot facility in the Vancouver area to make its own construction tools.
The $3.5 million investment is a small portion of the $100 million the Kla team plans to spend on building the Klamath Valley construction equipment facility.
The company has a partnership with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers to use its technology for its construction equipment.
The U.K.-based company will have a full-time staff of 10 to 12 people to build and operate the KLA Construction Equipment facility.
It is unclear if the KDL’s new equipment will be used in other construction projects in the Klahl Valley.
The site in northern B.C. is one of the locations where the Klaxa company is currently using its Kla tool and drill kits.
The equipment is used in a variety of applications, including building and drilling.
Construction gear maker Kla was founded in 1984 and is based in Denmar, Austria.
The project to build its first Denmar factory, a $2 million facility, has been delayed.
