ST. LOUIS— Distributor, manufacturer and service provider CK Power has opened an assembly facility for its Terramac subsidiary, which produces rubber-tracked crawler carriers. The new plant is expected to create 75 new jobs by spring 2023.
The new jobs will include skilled manufacturing and back-office positions for Terramac, a U.S.-based brand that focuses on engineering innovations and versatile off-road equipment solutions that serve such industries as utility, general construction, environmental, renewable energy, drilling, pipeline, mining and landfill management. Terramac was acquired by CK Power in January 2021.
The new plant was established to give Terramac more control of the company's crawler carrier manufacturing, Matt Slater, Terramac vice president of business development, said in a statement. The 100,000-sq.-ft. structure is located on 8 acres of land and is being leased for Terramac.
