AGCO Expands In Southwestern Minnesota

JACKSON, Minn. (AP) — An expansion of AGCO’s tractor plant in southwestern Minnesota is expected to generate up to 150 new jobs, many in production.

Gov. Mark Dayton arrived at the plant Thursday in a Massey Ferguson tractor to officially open the 75,000-square-foot addition in Jackson. Some 900 employees gathered to celebrate the expansion, which brings the Massey Ferguson product line back to the United States.

AGCO’s addition includes a visitor’s center with a showroom, dining area and movie theater.

The Fairmount Sentinel reports the Minnesota Department of Employment and Economic Development estimates Jackson’s economic output will grow by more than $2 million.

    Oh Oh Jobs…time for the EPA to see if the the Amazon Frog is endangered. Better shut the expansion down until all studies have been completed.
