GWINNER, N.D. - Bobcat has announced more than 100 hourly positions will be added at the company’s primary production facility in Gwinner between now and August.

The company is currently accepting applications, according to a news release issued by Bobcat.

“We have finished transitioning all production lines to Gwinner and are experiencing growth in certain areas of our business,” said Rich Goldsbury, president of Bobcat Americas, in the release. “It has always been our plan to build the Gwinner workforce as we saw an increase in demand for our products.”

Bobcat consolidated the majority of North Dakota manufacturing operations in Gwinner late last year as a result of decreased demand for products across the industry. All North American-produced machines are now being made in Gwinner, which was the original Melroe Manufacturing Company plant and home to the first production compact loader in 1958.
