WEST FARGO, N.D. (Nov. 7, 2023) – Bobcat Company, a global compact equipment, innovation
and worksite solutions brand announced today intentions to expand its footprint with a new
manufacturing facility in Monterrey, Mexico, anticipated to begin production in early 2026.  
 
The investment, planned for approximately $300 million, will expand Bobcat’s existing global
footprint to create additional production capacity and manufacturing capabilities for select compact
track and skid-steer loader models. The new facility is expected to create an additional 600 to 800
jobs in the region.   
 
“As a global company with manufacturing facilities, offices, dealerships, and customers across the
globe, we have seen tremendous growth and increased demand for our products,” said Scott Park,
Doosan Bobcat CEO and vice chairman. “We are excited to continue growing our footprint to meet
demand for Bobcat solutions worldwide.”   
 
The 700,000-square-foot manufacturing facility is expected to increase Bobcat’s North American
compact loader production capacity by 20%. The facility will feature areas for welding, painting, and
assembly, as well as an on-site warehouse and office space. Bobcat will implement state-of-the-art
technology with an emphasis on quality, precision, and energy efficiency.  
 
The Monterrey location will manufacture Bobcat M-Series compact loaders for North American
distribution. This strategic manufacturing capacity alignment will allow Bobcat to focus its industry-
leading R-Series compact loader production at its Gwinner, N.D. facility, and its Dobris, Czech
Republic facility will continue to manufacture M-Series loaders for Europe, the Middle East and
Africa regions. Bobcat will continue to focus on talent retention and hiring at all locations in support
of continued expansion and growth.  
 
“This new facility allows us to design a manufacturing space for maximum efficiency, quality, and
production output,” said Mike Ballweber, Doosan Bobcat North America president. “By growing our
manufacturing footprint, we can also further optimize our other global facilities to improve our
operational efficiency and enhance employees’ workspaces.”  
 
This new location was selected after extensive review and consideration of expansions at the existing
Bobcat locations, along with the potential for new developments at locations across the globe.
Monterrey was selected for its well-established industrial sector, skilled workforce, proximity to the
U.S., cost competitiveness, and strong business environment, among other factors.
