MacAllister breaks ground

(Continued)

WASHINGTON —

 Also included in the MacAllister expansion project are:

•The addition of a separate building dedicated solely to sand-blasting and painting

•A new $300,000 state-of-the-art dynometer (engine test cell) that will test engines as large as the CAT C175

•A 400-hp transmissions test bench, large enough to re-build CAT 3600 engines

•A new, larger track repair shop

•Consolidation of the parts inventory in one Washington-area location.

 “Everyone is pleased to see MacAllister take strategic advantage of the new distribution and logistics benefits afforded by the opening of I-69,” said Jeremy Sowders, director of business development for Radius Indiana, a regional economic development partnership serving eight counties in south central Indiana. “Given the broad impact of MacAllister Machinery, we at Radius are happy to provide support for this expansion.”

 Headquartered in Indianapolis, MacAllister Machinery Co., Inc. is the exclusive Caterpillar dealer for most of Indiana.

Established in 1945, the company presently employs more than 750 Hoosiers in 17 service and rental facilities around Indiana.

 “It took a working team of professionals and community leaders to put this expansion together, which will ultimately benefit the I-69 entire region,” said Ron Arnold, executive director of the Daviess County Economic Development Corporation.

“It was a pleasure working with the MacAllister professionals, particularly as this type of expansion is exactly what the county is looking for with its strategic proximity to the new Interstate.”
