JUNCTION CITY, Kan. — Michelin North America Inc. plans to invest $100 million over five years to expand production capacity for rubber tracks and grow its work force at the Junction City plant of its Camso subsidiary by as many as 200 employees.
Greenville, S.C.-based Michelin said May 22 that it will expand its Camso-brand rubber track manufacturing to meet growing demand for both original equipment and aftermarket tracks.
A Michelin subsidiary since 2018, Camso opened the Junction City facility in 2020 as part of a broader effort to grow its North American footprint. At the time, Camso invested $36.4 million to convert an existing 140,000-sq.-ft. structure into the new plant. It was expected to employ around 50.
Michelin did not disclose the plant's capacity nor say how much it expects that capacity to increase.
