A new facility that will offer Bobcat products will soon be built in Stewartville. WB Properties Rochester plans to build a 23,400 square-foot building near the new Peterbilt facility in the Schumann Business Park. Cheryl Roeder, city clerk, has said that Sanco Equipment will use the new building to sell the Bobcat product line, which includes agricultural and construction equipment, mowers, trailers, refrigerated semi-trailers and more. Construction of the new building will begin soon, Roeder has said. "They want to get into the ground by early April so they can open up this fall," she said. Sanco Equipment acquired Bobcat of Rochester from Valley Trailer Sales in April 2017. Bobcat of Rochester, an authorized sales and service provider of Bobcat compact equipment, is currently in a temporary location at 1802 Hwy. 30 Southwest, Stewartville, the former Noble RV location, while the new building is being constructed. In the meantime, Bobcat of Rochester will continue to provide sales, parts, service and rental, according to a company news release.
