Camso said it plans to open a new track manufacturing plant in Junction City, Kan., to meet the growing demand of track systems in the agriculture and construction industries. The 139,000 sq.ft. facility is expected to open in January 2020.
“Camso is putting the means in place to help deliver on the increasing demand of our agriculture and construction track products,” said Hugues Lajoie, vice president and general manager – Agriculture at Camso.
With a forecasted increase in production capacity, the new facility will allow Camso to have more products on hand to meet demand and shorten delivery lead times.
Junction City is a strategic location for Camso due to its proximity to the company’s existing manufacturing plant in Emporia, Kan.
“This new location will allow for a strong collaboration between the two plants to produce and deliver quality products to our customers. Moreover, the new site will allow access to a talented local workforce that will allow Camso to add 35 individuals to our team,” said Lajoie.
