Camso celebrate the expansion of its Peosta, Iowa Manufacturing facility with employees, partners and community leaders on October 4th.
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.”
By moving all operations to a larger building across the street, Camso was able to grow its Peosta manufacturing and storage footprint by 85%, allowing the company to increase its production capacity. “To meet the growing demand for track systems and sustain the anticipated growth of the upcoming years, relocation was necessary,” explained Patrick Fortin. With an increased production capacity, Camso will have more products on hand and be in a better position to solidify its market leadership.
The move also highlighted Camso’s commitment to provide its team with a working environment of choice. The offices and cafeteria were built in the spirit of Camso’s brand identity, and assembly operations received a new paint line and additional equipment and machinery. The footprint expansion and growing demand for tracks systems also create new job opportunities for the local workforce, with several positions to be opened in the near future.
