Doosan Bobcat Expands Litchfield, Minn., Facility

Published: 9/12, 2019

Doosan Bobcat has announced plans for a $26 million expansion of its Litchfield, Minn., manufacturing facility. The investment will enable meeting an increased demand for Bobcat’s growing and expanded line of compact equipment and attachments.

The Litchfield announcement coincides with the official opening this week of Doosan Bobcat’s nearly $2 million investment in a new Global Collaboration Center in downtown Minneapolis at 150 South Fifth Street. The center serves as an easily accessible, centralized location where some elements of the company’s global functions work, host global meetings and accelerate innovation. 

Located approximately 65 miles west of Minneapolis, Doosan Bobcat’s investment in Litchfield will modernize the existing production facility by adding new paint lines, a climate-controlled environment, assembly line upgrades and more. When completed, the project will more than triple the size of the current footprint and expand the facility to nearly 200,000 ft2 (18,580 m3). Once fully operational, the expanded facility is also expected to triple its workforce, from the current 100 employees to an anticipated 300 full-time employees, which will significantly impact the area’s local economy.

Construction is underway, with full completion expected by September 2020. The Litchfield facility has been a part of Doosan Bobcat since 2004, and today manufactures attachments for Doosan Bobcat loaders and excavators for the North American market. 

Bobcat continues to increase its manufacturing footprint with investments in facilities across North America. Recently, the company announced a $17 million investment in Gwinner, N.D., and an $11 million investment in Statesville, N.C. These efforts are part of Doosan Bobcat’s long-term strategic growth initiatives as a global leader in the compact equipment industry, in addition to demonstrating its long-term commitment to employees and communities.
