Camso, a Michelin Group company, has opened a new 140,000-square-foot manufacturing facility based in Junction City, Kan. The facility, which will manufacture agricultural tracks, increases Camso’s manufacturing footprint in North America to 7 facilities and solidifies its leadership in the agricultural market.

“The addition of this new facility will contribute to meet the growing demand of tracks and track systems in the agriculture industry and our commitment to be the best partner for our customers,” said Christopher Uher, Junction City plant manager.

Junction City is a strategic location for Camso due to its proximity to Camso’s existing manufacturing plant in nearby Emporia, Kan.

“This facility will allow for a strong collaboration between the two plants to produce and deliver quality products to our customers,” said Uher. The new facility will employ more than 50 employees.
