VP Global Operations
(Former CEO Bobcat)
"We have something in Ingersol Rand we call “low-cost country,” and it’s a major initiative to look globally at the products that we buy that are supplied from suppliers to us and looking for the, if you would, “low-cost country” relative to labor cost and infrastructure costs. As we do that I kid sometimes about it, but it’s a serious kidding in that indeed North Dakota is “low-cost country” because although we pay higher wages than in some places in the world, the total costs of what we do as a company here, the productivity of the people, the technical skills of the people, are more than off-setting the associated labor costs. Everyone is trying to chase labor, we are happy to stay here and take advantage of the skills of the people."
