MacDon Expands in Winnipeg

MacDon is adding more than 300 jobs at its manufacturing plant in Winnipeg—an increase that will allow for the addition of a third shift.

Business development vice president Gene Fraser said the jobs will be in fabrication, machine shop, welding, painting and assembly.

Fraser said the global market for new agricultural machinery is good, and there’s pent-up demand because there was not an abundance of used equipment available last fall. As a result, dealers are placing orders to fill the pipeline.

“Another factor that’s carrying more weight each year is the growing demand for implements in all categories capable of precision farming,” Fraser said. “There’s no point in developing a new machine if it doesn’t have that capability.”
