Bobcat Plant to Close in Bismarck, N.D.

September 14, 2009 11:07 AM
Bobcat Company today announced that it is transferring all North American machinery production to its original manufacturing facility in Gwinner, N.D., which will discontinue production at Bobcat's Bismarck, N.D., plant by the end of the year
Currently, Bobcat mini excavators, the Toolcat utility work machine, the S70 skid-steer loader and mini track loaders are made at the Bismarck plant, and all other Bobcat skid-steer loaders, compact track loaders and all-wheel steer loaders are manufactured at the Gwinner plant. Production of all the machines will move to the Gwinner plant.
Over the next three months, 475 production positions will be phased out of Bismarck, but as many as 390 jobs will remain in North Dakota to accommodate the consolidation. Bismarck will retain 150 positions, including Product Engineering, Finance, Accounts Payable and Aftermarket Parts. These are areas unaffected by the move. The Bobcat Manufacturing Support Center will also remain in Bismarck.
