The Toro Company Expands Headquarters Furthering Its Investments in Innovation and Supporting Future Growth

BLOOMINGTON, Minn.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- The Toro Company (NYS: TTC) , a leading worldwide provider of turf, landscape, rental and construction equipment, and irrigation and outdoor lighting solutions, broke ground today on a $25 million expansion in Bloomington, Minnesota that the company has called home for over 50 years. The project begins the process of expanding the company's product development and test capacities, demonstrating its continued commitment to innovation.

"We are investing in our Bloomington facility to enable our businesses to continue to meet the needs of our customers," said Michael J. Hoffman, Toro's chairman and chief executive officer. "With the anticipated growth of our businesses, through ongoing product development and the addition of recent acquisitions taking us into new markets, this investment will help to expand our technical capacity and further the innovation our customers expect.
