Ironhide Equipment in Devils Lake, which operates as Bobcat of Devils Lake, began operating out of a larger facility Thursday.

“We are excited to get into a bigger building and expand customer service. With the improved space, we can be more efficient and keep customers’ down time to a minimum.” said Shelby Vasichek, branch manager.

Owner and president of the company, Jason Vasichek, said the new location increases its square footage from 3,000 square feet to 12,000 square feet.

The facility was built on 6 acres of land and was designed to optimize truck and customer traffic. The  building was constructed with durable precast concrete and includes large areas of glass in the showroom.

The service department has pull-through work bays and overhead cranes.

The company has been doing business in the town since 2008.
