BOMAG Americas and Komatsu America say Komatsu’s six company-owned dealerships have entered into a new arrangement for the sale and support of BOMAG compaction, milling, paving and reclaiming/stabilizing equipment for roadbuilding and other construction markets.
The dealerships are Edward Ehrbar, Komatsu Equipment Company, Komatsu Northeast, Komatsu Southwest, Midlantic Machinery and Pine Bush Equipment.
The new dealers will serve BOMAG customers in the states of Connecticut (Fairfield County), Delaware, Maryland, Nevada, New Jersey, New Mexico, southern New York, Utah, Wyoming and in Texas, the El Paso market.
The collaboration, which has just taken effect, unites two companies with complimentary products and a reputation as industry leaders, the companies announced January 3. The deal follows the parting of ways between three of these dealers and Wirtgen Group in March 2018 following Wirtgen’s acquisition by John Deere.
For customers, the collaboration with BOMAG creates access to new, used and rental equipment, along with an unparalleled commitment to spare parts, planned service maintenance and repairs.
“We are pleased to announce this new relationship and are proud to welcome Komatsu’s company-owned dealerships into the BOMAG network,” says Rob Mueckler, president of BOMAG Americas.
“With Komatsu, there is no doubt BOMAG has aligned itself with the preeminent leader in the construction sector. This collaboration will support our growth plans, enabling BOMAG to expand its position in the roadbuilding sector even more rapidly”
Tim Tripas, vice president and general manager of construction equipment for Komatsu America, agrees.
“To fulfill the growing customer demand for compaction, paving and milling applications, teaming up with BOMAG and their large breadth of products for roadbuilding is just good business,” Tripas says. “Our shared values and deep commitment to customer support, product innovation, technology and helping our customers thrive and grow, makes this an ideal fit.”
