Bobcat Company Announces $17M Investment in Gwinner Manufacturing Facility

FARGO, ND — Bobcat Company, a manufacturer and distributer in the compact equipment industry, announces plans for a $17-million investment at its Gwinner, North Dakota, manufacturing facility.

“We are excited to strengthen our North Dakota manufacturing footprint. This project emphasizes our commitment to continuous improvement and to the Gwinner operation,” said Mike Ballweber, President of Doosan Bobcat North America. “As the industry leader, we will continue to invest in our operations to meet the demand for our products.”

The investment plan calls for installing a new powder-coat paint line and adding 30,000 square feet of manufacturing space to the Gwinner facility, which currently has 750,000 square feet. The investment in the painting process is designed to increase powder-paint capacity and enhance quality, as well as provide space for additional verification tests.

"This investment is a strategic step to advance our commitment to quality and manufacturing excellence," said James Flynn, Vice President of Operations at Bobcat Company. “This expansion will allow us to support our new R-series loaders and prepare for future demand and growth.”

Construction for the expansion is expected to begin immediately. The paint line improvements will be completed in three phases, with full project completion expected in July 2020.
