Minneapolis, Minn. — Ziegler CAT announced the opening of a new sales and parts facility in Willmar, Minn. The new 5,360 square foot facility will offer a selection of compact construction and ag equipment. The location will also bring Ziegler parts and service support closer to the surrounding area. It will open on April 20, 2015, and will be located at 2987 Hwy 12 West.

A full inventory of parts and maintenance items for Cat construction equipment, AGCO ag equipment and Lexion combines, as well as hydraulic hose rebuilding capabilities, will be available.
