Doosan Bobcat, state's largest manufacturer, adding 100 jobs

WEST FARGO (AP) — North Dakota’s largest manufacturer says it is adding 100 jobs.

Doosan Bobcat employs more than 3,300 people in the state and nearly 4,000 throughout North America, including at manufacturing facilities in Minnesota and Wisconsin.

Headquartered in West Fargo, Doosan Bobcat manufacturers a variety of construction, agriculture, landscaping and grounds maintenance equipment, and provides attachments and services.

The company’s factory in Gwinner shut down for a day in March to clean the facility after an employee reported symptoms of the coronavirus.

“We see great promise in the North Dakota workforce, which we believe is a key advantage as we seek to grow our business and contribute to the communities where we operate,” said Mike Ballweber, president of Doosan Bobcat North America.
