Bobcat Company marked its millionth loader milestone on July 12, 2014, with its valued employees and the community of Gwinner, North Dakota, home to Bobcat's primary production facility. The ceremony featured remarks from Rich Goldsbury, president of Bobcat and Doosan (parent company of Bobcat) for North America; and city, state and federal elected officials. Sylvan Melroe, one of the organization's first marketing managers, was a special guest speaker. Cyril Keller, one of the brothers who invented the original three-wheeled loader and soon after partnered with Melroe Manufacturing, was on-hand as well. The ceremony culminated with a product line roll-off of the millionth loader (a skid-steer model), followed by loader number one-million-one (a compact track loader version).
