TimberPro, a manufacturer of forestry equipment, will significantly expand its factory in Shawano, Wisconsin. The $8 million construction project will add more than 48,000 square feet to the company’s existing facility.
“Forestry is very important to our state’s economy, and expanding our operation will enable us to provide more good, family-supporting jobs in northern Wisconsin,” said Lee Crawford, CEO of TimberPro. “This expansion will also allow us to enhance our research and development capabilities and significantly increase our production of existing and new products.”
The expansion will enable TimberPro to double its production capacity to help meet market demand for the equipment and attachments manufactured at the facility. In conjunction with the expansion, the company anticipates adding new positions for assemblers, welders, machinists and office staff. The expansion project should be completed and ready for occupancy in the summer of 2023.
Founded by the Crawford family in 2002, TimberPro is a Wisconsin-based manufacturer of purpose-built forest machines and attachments, offering track feller bunchers and harvesters, forwarders, wheel harvesters, and felling heads. TimberPro was acquired by Komatsu in 2019.
