    Camso Expands Manufacturing Facility to Meet Snow Bike Demand

     Camso, formerly Camoplast Solideal, just completed an expansion of its Shawinigan, Québec, manufacturing facility to support the growing demand of its new Camso DTS 129 snow bike product line. The expanded Shawinigan facility has 25% bigger footprint and 50% larger manufacturing capacity, thanks to the addition of a new assembly line.

    “In addition to adding an assembly line and increasing our workforce, best-in-class LEAN manufacturing practices were also implemented”, says Emmanuelle Beaudry, Plant Executive Director – Powersports at Camso.  “This is our second expansion, with the first being in 2011 to support our ATV & UTV track systems business growth when we moved into a new larger facility,” adds Beaudry.

    Camso announced the DTS 129 to the market in the spring of 2016, with availability to riders through its established network of thousands of powersports dealers worldwide in fall 2016.  Start-up of the new assembly line went as planned, and by mid-November the added production capacity was able to serve the Camso business model of same-day shipments on daily orders. Final touches on the facility were completed at the end of January.
