Michelin says its multi-million dollar investment will increase the output of Camso agricultural rubber tracks to respond to "market evolution."

Michelin has announced its plan to invest more than $100 million into its Junction City, Kansas operations over the next five years to increase the production capacity of tracks for agricultural equipment.

“At Michelin, we are proud to partner with our customers who are meeting the challenge of feeding the world more efficiently while protecting the environment,” said Alexis Garcin, president and chief executive officer of Michelin North America. “This investment in agricultural tracks capacity is further evidence of our commitment to bring Michelin’s all-sustainable strategy to life in North America.”

Camso, a brand under the Michelin Group, specializes in off-road tires, rubber tracks and systems for material handling, construction, agriculture and powersports industries.
