Bobcat reopening manufacturing facilities Monday
The Bobcat Manufacturing facilities in Bismarck will reopen and resume production on Monday.
Stacey Breuer, public relations director for Bobcat, confirmed the reopening of the facility, stating 660 employees work at the Bismarck location.
In a press release, the company says it’s providing employees with gloves, masks and face shields. They’re also taking employees temperatures before they begin working.
Full production will resume at Bismarck, Gwinner, Wahpeton facilities in North Dakota along with Litchfield, MN and Statesville, NC sites.
Doosan Bobcat says it continues to operate during COVID-19 because it has been identified as essential for critical infrastructure and energy production needs.
Employees will have new face shields to wear when they get back to work Monday morning.
Fifteen employees came in on Saturday to make the masks for workers.
They have also been in touch with nursing homes and long-term care centers across the state and will start distributing them this week.
