In January 2011, AGCO announced its plans to produce Massey Ferguson® and Challenger® high horsepower wheeled row crop tractors in the company’s Jackson, Minnesota, USA, farm equipment manufacturing facility. The plans included a 75,000-square-foot expansion of the manufacturing facility and construction of a state-of-the-art visitors’ center. Click here to view the announcement video.
We’re pleased to report that the construction of the Jackson, MN expansion is currently underway and on schedule despite recent unfavorable weather conditions. Due to popular demand, a video camera has been mounted overlooking the construction areas with a live video feed that is currently streaming on AGCO’s Ustream channel.
Here is the video compiled of time-lapsed photos of the construction leading up to this week.
As the construction continues, we’ll be posting more updates so stay tuned and check-back often.
