WEST FARGO, North Dakota — One of North Dakota's top manufacturing companies is expanding its headquarters in West Fargo.
Groundbreaking was held Tuesday on a $9.5 million project for Bobcat Co., which employs more than 2,000 people in the state.
Bobcat and its parent company, Doosan, will nearly double the size of its West Fargo headquarters, from 38,000 to 71,000 square feet. Construction is expected to be completed in about a year.
Bobcat has its primary manufacturing plant in Gwinner, along with a support center in Wahpeton, an attachments production plant in Bismarck, and an acceleration center in Bismarck.
North Dakota Gov. Jack Dalrymple says the expansion will further support Bobcat's standing as a leading innovator in compact equipment.
