RED LAKE FALLS, MN—Mower manufacturer Altoz Inc. recently announced plans to expand its facility here by 62,500 square feet to accommodate the company’s growth. The expansion is expected to be completed by this fall, and is the first phase of a multi-phase project.

The expanded building and the one the company operates in Greenbush, MN, combined, will total more than 400,000 square feet between them.
According to the company, investing in and expanding Red Lake Falls was done to increase capacity and improve operational efficiency. The new manufacturing facility will accommodate state-of-the-art metal fabrication equipment, including laser cutting systems, turret presses, press brakes, and robotic welders, along with a powder coat paint system and a distribution center.

“This expansion will allow us to meet the increased demand for our commercial mowers and continue to diversify into other segments of the outdoor power equipment industry,” says Dennis Brazier, Altoz CEO. In addition to the manufacturing facility, the site features a modern, a multi- story office building that will accommodate a growing workforce.

Last year was a successful one for Altoz, as it gained worldwide recognition and won numerous industry awards for new product innovation with its tracked stand-on mower. The company was also named one of the Top 175 Workplaces in Minnesota. Its corporate headquarters holds MNSHARP certification from MNOSHA that recognizes organizations where managers and employees work together to develop safety and health management systems that go beyond basic compliance with all applicable OSHA standards.
