Camso to open new track manufacturing plant
A new track manufacturing plant is being set up in the USA to meet growing demand from agricultural and construction segment customers for Camso’s tracks and track systems. The 139,000 square foot (12,900 square metre) facility, located in Junction City, Kansas, is expected to open in January 2020. The increase in production capacity that will accompany the plant’s opening will enable Camso to shorten its delivery lead times.
“Camso is putting the means in place to help deliver on the increasing demand of our agriculture and construction track products,” comments Hugues Lajoie, vice-president and general manager of Camso’s agriculture business.
Junction City is a strategic location for Camso due to its proximity to its existing manufacturing plant in Emporia, Kansas. “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,” says Lajoie.
