One thought on “Doosan Infracore to buy Bobcat

  1. This is a sad time in American business. Bobcat is truly an American company founded by the Melroe brothers. This company has never lost money and never had a layoff. I have been a loyal Bobcat owner since 1969. I don’t know what I will do for my next skid steer purchase. I will probably go to compteitive bid. Where in the past I have always gone to my Bobcat dealer and just said have a unit ready for on this date. The corporate heads @ Ingersoll have nothing in mind except the bottom line. NICE GOING.
