A History of Innovation

Our story is unique, our history is rich, and our growth and success rival the best in the industry. We are Bobcat Company, and we are proud of the richly illustrated story of our company's heritage that began nearly a half century ago.

Bobcat Company set roots in 1947 as Melroe Manufacturing Company, because hearty souls on the Northern Plains were not satisfied with doing things the way they always had. Throughout the past five decades, our company and its employees have symbolized the innovative spirit, tenacity and personal pride that it takes to be successful.

Today, as it always has, our company emphasizes quality in products and workmanship, and cooperative relationships among customers, dealers, business associates, and employees. Our focus has always been to satisfy the demanding and continually changing needs of our customers.

We're proud of our company and our products, so if you don't find the information that you are looking for, please let us know.

We invite you to read the story of how Bobcat came to be.
