In 1958, the company Melroe Manufacturing Company from North Dakota (USA) acquired the rights to the Keller three-wheel loader.
Specialists of the Melroe company developed a new design and in 1960 presented the M400 model.
Thanks to the drive of all four wheels, this model became the world's first true skid steer loader and the starting point from which the compact equipment market originated.
In 1962, the company Melroe launched the model M440, which is an improved version of the model M400.
A Melroe partner suggested calling the Bobcat loader after a red-haired lynx, a prairie dweller, strong, fast and sharp (she can turn 180 ° when running at maximum speed). So the Bobcat brand appeared.
In 1963, the Bobcat M444 skid steer loader came to replace the M440. The same year was the year when the M444 loaders entered the European market.
Six decades and more than a million loaders. Bobcat brand products have changed the way people work around the world, and the Bobcat brand itself, with its amazing success story, has become a world legend.
Currently, the Bobcat product range includes not only skid steer loaders, but also compact track loaders, compact excavators, telescopic loaders, backhoe loaders and an ever-expanding range of attachments for all of these machines.
The range of the brand expanded gradually, and the company's entry into the markets of Europe, the Middle East and Africa played a key role in transforming the Bobcat brand from the manufacturer of skid steer loaders to the world's leading manufacturer of compact technology.
In the region of Europe, the Middle East and Africa, the company's development and customer attention received a new impetus by creating a European structure for the development and production of machines, solutions and services that meet the requirements of customers from this region.
The culmination of activity in this direction was the opening of the first Bobcat plant outside the United States in 2007. The city of Dobris, to the south of Prague, the capital of the Czech Republic, was chosen as the location.
The existing plant for the production of telescopic loaders in Ponsato, located in the Loire-Atlantique department in north-west France, and the plant in Dobris serve as the basis for the development, production and promotion of Bobcat products in Europe.
At these enterprises, 80% of products are produced, which are promoted and sold in the region of Europe, the Middle East and Africa.
