Ohio Cat celebrated the opening of its Broadview Heights, Ohio, headquarters expansion with a ribbon-cutting ceremony last week with owner Ken Taylor and representatives of several public officials in attendance. As part of the company’s $75 million facilities expansion and improvement program, the headquarters expansion project doubled the size of Ohio Cat’s corporate office, training and meeting facilities.
At the ceremony, Broadview Heights Mayor Sam Alai; Ohio State Representative Marlene Anielski, and Nicole Kostura, aid to Governor John Kasich, thanked Ohio Cat for its continued investment in the city of Broadview Heights, near Cleveland, and Northeast Ohio.
The $24 million project included multiple additions that unified the exterior appearance while integrating the various internal business functions of the company. The structure incorporated numerous sustainable design and construction features that greatly improve energy performance of the building. With administrative staff, as well as product support, equipment sales and equipment rental staff, Ohio Cat’s Broadview Heights headquarters employs 185 people.
Ohio Cat, No. 29 on the RER 100, is the authorized Caterpillar dealer for Ohio, Northern Kentucky and Southeastern Indiana.
