Gehl Expands Telehandler Facility
By Gehl Company
Gehl Company announced a $6.5 million expansion project that was approved by the company's Board of Directors on April 28, 2006. The expansion is in response to the continuing strength of telehandler markets and Gehl's strong performance in those markets.
The project includes a $2.2 million, 30,000-square-foot expansion of the facility, as well as $4.3 million in further technological production enhancements to include increased laser cutting, robotics and an entirely new paint system. When completed in January of 2007, telehandler production capacity will be approximately 50 percent greater than today.
Gehl currently builds 16 models of telehandlers at its Yankton facility in various product configurations ranging in capacity from 6,000 to 12,000 pounds and lift height from 34 to 55 feet.
