Grand opening held for West Fargo equipment plant

FARGO, N.D. (AP) - A North Dakota heavy equipment manufacturing company is showing off its $50 million expansion project.

The Caterpillar Reman Drivetrain facility in West Fargo will help produce components for large off-highway trucks and other mining equipment.

Gov. Jack says Caterpillar's expansion in West Fargo testament to the positive business climate that officials have worked hard to establish in North Dakota. Dalrymple spoke during a grand opening ceremony Monday afternoon.

Caterpillar acquired the North Dakota assets of Gremada Industries Inc. in July 2008.

The expanded footprint houses high-tech machining and a state-of-the-art metal sciences lab, increasing the company's production capacity for remanufactured parts and advanced wear coatings.

Officials say the expansion will increase the capacity of the workforce from the current 300 jobs to 550, though future hiring plans are unclear.
