Case expands construction equipment manufacturing in Iowa

By |  August 7, 2014

Case Construction Equipment (CE) is investing $24 million to expand production in Burlington, Iowa, with the addition of its M Series crawler dozer production line.Preparations will begin later this year, and production on the new line is expected to begin in the second half of 2015.

“Burlington is very familiar territory for Case dozers,” says Jim Hasler, vice president of Case CE, North America. “Earlier models were produced in Burlington prior to the acquisition of the Calhoun, Ga., plant. Our new M Series dozers are experiencing high demand and we have plans in place to ensure availability as we transition production.”

Case says the M Series machines are currently produced at the Calhoun, Ga., plant, which will close in the third quarter of 2015 as the company streamlines its construction operations. The new production facilities will include a paint line, welding and computer numerical control machining equipment, and an assembly line.
