asv heavy equipment facilityASV Holdings says it will increase production capacity by approximately 30% in Q1 of 2021, creating 28 new jobs in the company’s Grand Rapids, Minnesota facility.

ASV says the move will strengthen its machine availability and “comes amid the strong success of the new Max-Series line combined with strong industry demand.”

The four new Max models — the RT-65, VT-70 High Output, RT-75 and the RT-75 Heavy Duty — are positioned in the middle of ASV’s CTL lineup. They feature a new structure design designed to give 68 percent more visible cab area than previous designs.

“We are pleased to invest in increased production capacity to support our growth, in addition to adding jobs to the Minnesota workforce,” says Kevin Zimmer, president of ASV owner Yanmar Compact Equipment North America. “It’s a strong indicator of our success in growing as a comprehensive provider of compact equipment in North America.”

The open positions include assemblers, welders, warehouse clerks, and production staff.
