WEST FARGO, N.D. (September 2019) – Bobcat Company, a global leader in the design, manufacturing and distribution of compact equipment, today officially announced the opening of a new Bobcat Training Center in Aurora, Colorado. 

Distinguished members of the Aurora community joined Doosan Bobcat North America executives for a ribbon cutting ceremony, executive remarks and an interactive tour of the facility. The training center, the first facility of its kind for Bobcat in North America, is dedicated to developing and deploying world-class training to Bobcat dealers. Bobcat Company chose the Denver area for its easily accessible location for Bobcat dealers, as well as its strategic location near the Denver International Airport. 

“The new Bobcat training center addresses our need for additional training capacity,” says Mike Ballweber, Doosan Bobcat North America president. “It also affirms our dedication to all dealers by providing a convenient location to service them. We look forward to being part of Aurora and the greater Denver community.” 

The 44,400 square-foot facility allows the company to meet the growing demands for dealer training and presents the opportunity to improve training curriculums with the use of new technologies. Students will learn in the classroom and through simulations in interactive labs. They will also have the ability to apply what they’ve learned to products. The Bobcat Training Center provides specialized skills training such as troubleshooting and diagnostics, new technician onboarding, selling skills and more. 

“As our equipment offers more features and becomes more advanced, it’s important that we offer the training needed to support new technologies and ensure that the full potential of each piece of equipment is being utilized,” says Ballweber. 

The Bobcat Training Center includes technical training rooms, hands-on shop space, a large classroom style auditorium, as well as a full warehouse area for equipment storage and showroom space. 

Bobcat plans to begin utilizing the new space immediately to further develop its extensive dealer training program, providing the company the ability to respond quickly to evolving industry demands and trends. 

“As a company, we are dedicated to investing time and resources to make it easier for our dealers to learn how to use and maintain their Bobcat compact equipment,” Ballweber says. “We believe this investment will provide our company with the best trained dealer network and, in turn, more productive customers.”
