Kraus-Anderson has completed construction on a 59,800-square-foot dealership for Ziegler Cat’s agriculture and construction equipment in Willmar, Minnesota.
Located at 4600 Highway 71 South in Willmar, the two-story service facility features a retail showroom, a 25,000-square-foot shop, warehouse and offices, and a 7,800-square-foot cold storage building. Designed by CNH Architects, the facility also includes two bridge cranes, lube systems and a wash/steam bay.
One of Caterpillar’s largest dealers in North America, Ziegler is expanding its equipment sales, rental and repair services in the central Minnesota market area and expects to have a significant employment and economic impact. Ziegler sells and services Cat construction, paving, forestry, mining equipment, trucks, generators, and industrial engines. Ziegler also sells the full line of AGCO equipment and CLAAS combines.
Ziegler Cat first opened in Willmar with a rented 5,360 square-foot sales and parts facility in 2015. The new project will replace that building, bringing a significantly larger presence to the area.
Ziegler Cat has 27 locations and was founded in 1914. Ziegler is a family-owned company employing more than 2,000 people in Minnesota, Iowa, Wisconsin and Missouri.
