Aug. 16--CNH Case New Holland, which builds agricultural and construction equipment, broke ground today on a parts distribution center in Cameron, Mo.
The 500,000-square-foot facility, about 50 miles northeast of Kansas City, is expected to be completed by early 2007 and fully operational by the middle of the year. The new CNH parts operation will employ about 150 workers.
The facility will serve about 560 CNH Case New Holland dealers, including those in Kansas.
CNH has a manufacturing plant in Wichita that builds skid steer loaders.
