Whether power plants from massive iron ore trucks, train engines, huge landfill engines, transmissions, hubs or differentials, the CNH Architects' designed Ziegler CAT Rebuild Center is working on them. The major facility in Bloomington, Minnesota was built around an existing outer structure that once housed Anvil, a sprinkler company.
The Ziegler CAT Rebuild Center is the central machine hub for Ziegler's multi-state area in the Midwest, which involves some 30 facilities. Director Tary Draper provides an introduction to the 120,000 square-foot facility, which also houses its parts operation. It's one of just five such facilities in the Western Hemisphere. The building features nine 20-ton bridge cranes and 71 jib cranes ranging in size from 1-ton to 3-tons. Engine and transmission dynos are also utilized on site.
In addition to very large equipment, Ziegler also rebuilds components for skid steers and other more common construction equipment that consumers regularly see on job sites.
"This is our crown jewel right now," said Draper. "Yeah, we're pretty proud of this."
