SALINAS VICTORIA, NUEVO LEON, MEXICO (June 14, 2024) — Bobcat Company, a global equipment, innovation and worksite solutions brand, held a ceremonial groundbreaking June 13 for its new, $300-million manufacturing facility in Mexico.

Located in the Salinas Victoria municipality, outside of Monterrey in the state of Nuevo Leon, Mexico, the 700,000-square-foot facility is expected to be operational in 2026.  

The groundbreaking ceremony was attended by Bobcat representatives, elected officials and area business leaders.

The new location, which was announced in 2023, will expand Bobcat’s existing global footprint to create additional production capacity and manufacturing capabilities for select compact track and skid-steer loader models. Bobcat’s compact loaders are also produced in the U.S. and the Czech Republic where production will remain following the new facility opening.  

The manufacturing facility will seek LEED Silver certification and feature technology with an emphasis on quality, precision and energy efficiency.

The design team includes U.S.-based Shultz + Associates Architects and Mexico-based GP Construcción, a division of Grupo GP, as the construction manager. Shultz + Associates Architects has partnered with Bobcat on the design and architecture of many of its North American locations. GP Construcción specializes in industrial parks and facilities across Mexico.  

The new factory is expected to create 600 to 800 jobs in the region. Career opportunities can be found at
