The CNHI Dozer Project expands the production capacity of the Burlington plant and introduces a new product line to the plant: crawlers/ dozers used for construction. The plant now produce six crawler/dozer models that cover the major volume categories of the North American Free Trade Agreement market. The project required $24 million of capital and expense for placement of fabrication, paint and assembly within the existing 963,000 sq. foot facility.
The project covers 45,000 sq. feet and is integrated into the existing facility. The project required one assembly line with the capacity to rapidly expand as required by market demand. The major equipment capital expenditure for the project was a new state-of-the-art, environmentally-efficient, paint system. The project was expected to increase plant revenue by 25%.
