Bobcat Company Invests $9.5 Million To Expand Headquarters In West Fargo, North Dakota
Company officials said the expansion will accommodate growth, drive innovation and improve Bobcat’s overall operations. Bobcat and its parent company, Doosan, will nearly double the size of the West Fargo headquarters, from its current footprint of about 38,000 square feet to more than 71,000 square feet. The expansion will support 240 Bobcat employees, bringing together staff currently working from various locations in the Fargo area. Construction is expected to be completed late next summer.
“Bobcat is an excellent example of the world-class innovation that is driving growth throughout North Dakota,” said Governor Jack Dalrymple. “This expansion will further support Bobcat’s global position as a leading innovator in compact equipment. Bobcat is a great North Dakota success story, a major employer and a valued member of the state’s strong manufacturing sector.”
Bobcat Company employs more than 2,000 people at its West Fargo headquarters, its primary manufacturing plant in Gwinner, a support center in Wahpeton, an attachments production plant in Bismarck and its new Acceleration Center in Bismarck.
In August 2014, Dalrymple joined Bobcat employees in Bismarck to celebrate the completion of the company’s $28 million Acceleration Center. Located in Bismarck’s Northern Plains Commerce Centre, the Acceleration Center serves as a key engineering facility for Bobcat and Doosan.
