Camso Inc. is expanding its manufacturing footprint in the U.S. The company will open a new track manufacturing plant in Junction City, Kan., to meet what it says is "the growing demand of tracks and track systems in the agriculture and construction industries." The 139,000‑square‑foot facility in the center of the country is a strategic location for Camso, which already has a manufacturing plant in Emporia, Kan., about 75 miles away. The Junction City site will open in January 2020.
“This new location will allow for a strong collaboration between the two plants to produce and deliver quality products to our customers," says Hugues Lajoie, vice president and general manager of agriculture at Camso. "Moreover, the new site will allow access to a talented local workforce that will allow Camso to add 35 individuals to our team.
“Camso is putting the means in place to help deliver on the increasing demand of our agriculture and construction track products."
The company says end-users continue to see the benefits of tracks in many applications. With a forecasted increase in production capacity, this new facility will allow Camso to have more products on hand to meet the growing demand and shorten delivery lead times. Camso manufactures both original equipment and replacement tracks and track systems.
