groundbreakingFebruary 5, 2014, Columbia, S.C. – BOMAG Americas Inc.
representatives, along with South Carolina State and local officials, held a
groundbreaking ceremony in Ridgeway, S.C. on the future site of the
manufacturer’s new North American headquarters.

The new 127,600 sq. ft. facility will house 107,100 sq. ft.
of spare parts warehousing and machine assembly area along with 20,500 sq. ft.
of office space. “We congratulate BOMAG on their announcement of an $18.2
million investment and the creation of 121 new jobs,” says South Carolina Gov.
Nikki Haley.

Coming on the heels of its asphalt paving and reclamation
equipment lines acquisition in 2013, BOMAG chose this strategic location –
situated within 30 miles from Columbia and 70 miles of Charlotte, NC – to
advance product and service support for its customers and distribution network.

“We believe this area offers our company several strategic
benefits, such as: close to port of entry, proximity to an air hub for spare
parts fulfillment and a climate conducive to offering year-round sales and
service training for our customers,” says Walter Link, president of BOMAG
Americas, Inc. Rob Mueckler, vice president of sales for BOMAG, adds, “The
primary objective of this new facility is to strengthen the services of our
North American organization with the purpose of being closer to and better
serving our customers.” 

A global organization, BOMAG manufactures and markets a
broad range of light and heavy compaction, asphalt paving, and soil
stabilization and asphalt reclamation equipment. Last year’s acquisition of
Cedarapids commercial and mainline pavers and material transfer equipment as
well as CMI Reclaimer/Stabilizers expanded its equipment offering to road
building contractors. Today, BOMAG offers customers a full range of asphalt
rehabilitation and paving equipment, ranging from half-lane milling machines,
reclaimer/stabilizers and material transfer equipment to asphalt pavers and
highway-class tandem vibratory and pneumatic rollers.

BOMAG looks to begin construction of the new facility in
March with an anticipated completion date sometime in October 2014, when the
manufacturer will begin the move from its current Kewanee, Ill. headquarters.
The new facility’s 107,100 ft2 warehousing area includes dedicated equipment
assembly space, where workers will customize the company’s compaction and road
building equipment with special features designed specifically for the North
American market.
