VT Leeboy creates Blaw-Knox division, reveals distribution plans

|  August 26, 2010 |

Lincolnton, N.C.-based VT Leeboy has created a new business division known as Blaw-Knox Commercial Paving Products.

The new division has developed a product line in which it has collaborated with Volvo Construction Equipment on several products based on traditional Blaw-Knox models.

“We are looking forward to providing contractors and agencies with the traditional ownership experience that Blaw-Knox has historically provided,” Al Cleeland, Blaw-Knox division manager told Better Roads, a sister publication to Equipment World, at the 2010 American Public Works Association (APWA) tradeshow in Boston in late August.

The machines will be unveiled in the first quarter of 2011 through Volvo Construction Equipment Roadbuilding distribution.

Further details will be available at www.blawknoxpaving.com, which is expected to be unveiled in October 2010. –Tina Grady Barbaccia
