Bobcat Co. plans to hire more than 100 people at its Gwinner, N.D., manufacturing plant, according to online news reports. Bobcat Americas president Rich Goldsbury said the hires are the result of increased demand for products and the transition of production to the Gwinner facility. The company closed its Bismarck, N.D., manufacturing facility in December 2009.
The hires will increase Bobcat’s N.D. work force to more than 1,700. Bobcat is based in Fargo, N.D.
