Bobcat to build new assembly plant in Rogers, Minnesota
May 11, 2022
Bobcat Company moves to streamline manufacturing efficiencies in the Midwest with plans to build a new assembly plant in Rogers, MN. The facility will result in more than 100 new, full-time jobs later this year.
“This investment further demonstrates our commitment to our presence in Minnesota, while supporting the growth we are experiencing in the marketplace,” said Mike Ballweber, president of Doosan Bobcat North America.
“We are dedicated to continuing to expand our capabilities and equipment product lines to empower our customers, and this new location will be an important part of this success.”
Bobcat anticipates the new operation – located on 22 acres in Rogers – will be fully operational by fourth quarter of 2022. The facility will add 225,000 square feet of production capacity.
The location in Rogers, a growing suburban community in Hennepin County and the seven-county Twin Cities metropolitan area, was chosen due in part to its unique location at the intersection of two regional roadway systems – Interstate 94 and Highway 101. This location will allow Bobcat to optimize manufacturing logistics by streamlining the company’s supply routes alongside other locations in the region, as well as create supply efficiencies that support both market demand and the company’s growth plans.
The addition of the Rogers facility will contribute to the company’s strategic manufacturing footprint plan and support its investments in facilities across North America, including a recent $26-million expansion at its facility in Litchfield, MN, and $70-million expansion in Statesville, NC.
“We will continue to invest in our facilities, employees and manufacturing capabilities, so we can meet the future needs of our dealers and customers, while continually enhancing excellence across our business,” added Ballweber.
