Bobcat Company announced Nov. 7 its 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 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 600-800 jobs.

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.

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 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 the Europe, Middle East and Africa regions. Bobcat said it will continue to focus on talent retention and hiring at all locations in support of continued expansion and growth.
