Wacker Neuson Begins Skid Steer Loader Production in U.S.
December 2, 2014
The Wacker Neuson Group is creating a production line for skid steer and compact track loaders here in the U.S. Wacker’s U.S. headquarters are in Menomonee Falls, Wisconsin, and the production line will be at this facility. The facility is on track to build equipment in early 2015 and at first will build four models. These models will only be sold at first in the U.S. and Canadian markets. Previously, all Wacker skid steer and compact track loaders were produced at the Hörsching site in Austria.
This new production facility is a natural fit for Wacker’s U.S. facility because the U.S. is the largest market for skid steer loaders. The CEO of Wacker Neuson SE, Cem Peksaglam, commented, “Our strategy is ‘in the region for the region’. So it makes sense for us to build skid steer loaders in the region where demand is strongest – North America.” He went on to say that “producing these products in North America will speed up time-to-market and enable us to adapt these high-quality, powerful machines more rapidly to the specific customer requirements of this core market.”
