We are so excited to be in our newly-completed, five acre, state-of-the-art manufacturing facility in Batesville, Arkansas! The building is completed, the ribbon has been cut, cake has been eaten, and we are ready to roll out our UTVs and mowers like never before! Due to hard work and an aggressive vision to build the best, the success we’ve enjoyed over the past several years has led us to this point.
FLOW AND GROW
Our new facility will make our day-to-day operation flow more efficient, and allow us to grow into the future, creating many more jobs for our community, and provide expansion of more dealerships throughout the United States. Our new building is a whopping 204,000-square foot, block facility with an open design, separated into three sections that house the Receiving, Assembly, and Shipping functions. It is located on 15 acres of the 40-acre Intimidator Campus, which is a part of the Northeast Industrial District. Intimidator employees contributed over 30,000 hours to the project, including construction tasks and support functions.
On May 21, 2019 over 1200 guests helped us celebrate this new, exciting chapter for the Intimidator Group. Special guests for the event included Mike Preston, Director of Arkansas Economic Development Commission, Arkansas Governor, Asa Hutchinson, and Country Music legend, Neal McCoy. There were factory tours, demonstrations, and the John 3:16 Ministry catered a catfish dinner to feed the crowd. At the ribbon-cutting ceremony, owner Robert Foster stated, “It was a boyhood dream to someday build a large, attractive, efficient, manufacturing building.” This project was the fulfillment of that dream. Roger Wright, COO, stated, “This building positions this 5 ½ year-old company to grow into an economic force for good in this community, the state, and the world.” You can see the video of the ribbon-cutting ceremony here.
Built on a solid foundation, formed by years of hard work and successful strategy, our faith-based company is poised to dramatically grow and expand throughout the US like never before. We are driven to produce innovative, quality products, designed to give our customers time for what matters most. The Intimidator Group is the parent company for several brands, manufacturing Spartan Mowers, Intimidator UTVs, Bad Dawg Accessories, GroundHog MAX Disc Plows, Gourmet Guru Grills and Envy Neighborhood Vehicles, to be released to the public later this year. We believe the best days are ahead of us! If you’ve not experienced our products first hand, go by one of our dealers, or click one of the links above to see what you’ve been missing!
