Bobcat Expands Global Manufacturing Footprint with New Facility in Monterrey, Mexico 

Posted: 8 November 2023

Doosan Bobcat, a global compact equipment, innovation and worksite solutions brand, announced today 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 EUR 280 million, will expand Bobcat’s existing global footprint to create additional production capacity and manufacturing capabilities for selected compact track and skid-steer loader models. The new facility is expected to create an additional 600 to 800 jobs in the region.

“As a global company with manufacturing facilities, offices, dealerships and customers across the globe, we have seen tremendous growth and increased demand for our products,” said Scott Park, Doosan Bobcat CEO. “We are excited to continue growing our footprint to meet demand for Bobcat solutions worldwide.”   

The 65,000-sqm 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. Bobcat will implement state-of-the-art technology with an emphasis on quality, precision and energy efficiency. The Monterrey location will manufacture compact loaders for North American distribution. Bobcat has additional locations across its global footprint that also produce compact loaders.

“Adding the Monterrey, Mexico facility allows North America to meet growing customer demand and enables our Bobcat European production facilities in Dobříš, Czech Republic to focus on manufacturing products for the EMEA region, in the EMEA region, meeting growing demand here. Globally, Bobcat will better serve customers by expanding our manufacturing facilities and shortening lead times,” said Gary Hornbacher, Doosan Bobcat President for the Europe, Middle East and Africa (EMEA) region.

This new location was selected after extensive review and consideration of expansions at existing Bobcat locations, along with the potential for new developments at locations across the globe. Monterrey was selected for its well-established industrial sector, skilled workforce, proximity to the U.S., cost competitiveness and strong business environment, among other factors.
