Another Manufacturing Expansion For Bobcat

Doosan Bobcat announced its third manufacturing plant expansion in less than a month. The company said it plans a $26 million expansion of its Litchfield, Minn. manufacturing facility. In October, Doosan Bobcat announced plans for a $17 million investment to expand its Gwinner, ND manufacturing operations. Earlier an $11 million investment was announced for its Statesville, N.C. facility.

The Litchfield announcement coincides with the official opening of Doosan Bobcat’s nearly $2 million investment in a new Global Collaboration Center in downtown Minneapolis. The center is expected to serve as an easily accessible, centralized location where some elements of the company’s global functions work, host global meetings and accelerate innovation.

Located approximately 65 miles west of Minneapolis, Doosan Bobcat’s investment in Litchfield will modernize the existing production facility by adding new paint lines, a climate-controlled environment, assembly line upgrades and more. When completed, the project will more than triple the size of the current footprint and expand the facility to nearly 200,000 sq. ft. Once fully operational, the expanded facility is also expected to triple its workforce to an anticipated 300 full-time employees.

Construction at Litchfield is underway, with completion expected by September 2020. Gwinner is expected to be finished in July. The Litchfield facility has been a part of Doosan Bobcat since 2004, and today manufactures attachments for Doosan Bobcat loaders and excavators for the North American market.
