Magog, QC, Nov. 12, 2020 ─ Camso, a Michelin® Group company, has opened a new 140,000-square-foot manufacturing facility based in Junction City, Kansas. The facility, which will manufacture agricultural tracks, increases Camso’s manufacturing footprint in North America to seven facilities and solidifies its leadership in the agricultural market.
“The addition of this new facility will contribute to meet the growing demand of tracks and track systems in the agriculture industry and our commitment to be the best partner for our customers,” said Christopher Uher, Junction City plant manager.
Junction City is a strategic location for Camso due to its proximity to Camso’s existing manufacturing plant in nearby Emporia, Kansas.
“This facility will allow for a strong collaboration between the two plants to produce and deliver quality products to our customers,” said Uher.
The new facility will employ more than 50 employees, tapping into a talented local workforce. This site will be ISO 9001 certified and use the same best-in-class track manufacturing technology, standards and quality and the benchmark health and safety practices used in the other Camso facilities.
“We want to recognize both Junction City and the State of Kansas, who have been very supportive of this project,” said Uher.
