Ziegler Cat, Caterpillar dealer for Minnesota, Iowa and parts of southern Wisconsin, is about to double the size of its existing dealership building in Fergus Falls, Minn., Fergusfallsjournal.com has reported.
Branch operations manager Dusty Schulz told the Fergus Falls Journal that the company has been planning the expansion for several years, but put plans on hold when business slowed down in 2008. Schulz said the additional space will allow improved customer service, an enlarged parts section, an improved inventory sorting process and an expanded shop, which will eliminate the need for staff to work on machines outside.
Schulz said work, which could take a year to 18 months, could be starting in the next few weeks.
Ziegler Cat has 21 locations in Minnesota, Iowa and Wisconsin.
