Camso Opens Iowa Plant
Employees, along with family, members of the community, customers, partners and the media, were invited to celebrate the inauguration of the new building with an official ribbon cutting, exclusive guided tour of the facility and BBQ. During the plant tour, they had the chance to walk the state-of-the-art 240,000-square-foot building, witness firsthand the assembly process of track systems and meet the people behind some of the industry’s best undercarriage products.
The new assembly facility has been in operation since October 2017. All existing machinery and operations were moved from the company’s previous Peosta location within 4 months with no impact on product delivery to customers. “This is an achievement we’re proud of,” said Patrick Fortin, Plant Director of Peosta. “The move was done in such a way that we maintained all of Camso’s regular product availability, thus showing our constant commitment to being the best partner for our customers.”
