Roto-Mix LLC, a leader in cattle feeding and mixing equipment, has announced that is has broken ground on the expansion of its primary manufacturing facility located in Dodge City, Kan.
A new, freestanding 20,000 s.f. industrial building will be constructed adjacent to the existing service center to provide additional space for assembly operations and add four additional service bays. Concurrently, Roto-Mix will update its paint operation with a new state-of-the-art paint line and additional paint booths.
“This plant expansion will give us the ability to more than double our capacity as demand for Roto-Mix products increases,” said Rod Neier, Roto-Mix CEO. “Our current plant, built in 1965, was designed for manufacturing feed mixers 12 to 14 feet in length. The new building will accommodate truck-mounted mixers with lengths of up 48 feet.”
The prime contractor for the project is JAG Construction, Dodge City. The project will be done in phases to allow manufacturing to continue with minimal impact on customers and dealers during construction.
Roto-Mix is a leading manufacturer of livestock mixing and feeding equipment, compost mixing equipment and manure spreaders. The company was founded in Dodge City in 1984 where its headquarters and primary manufacturing plant are still located. Since then the Company has grown to include an additional manufacturing facility in Hoisington, Kan. as well as company-owned service centers in Dodge City and Scott City, Kan. The marketing organization has over 150 dealers providing local sales and service in the U.S. and sales in over 35 international markets.
