Terramac has named Rish Equipment, Alta Equipment and Romco Equipment to its dealer network.

Rish will represent Terramac in 11 branch locations in Virginia and West Virginia. Alta's territory will include Vermont, Connecticut and New York, and Romco will represent the company in south Texas. 

Each dealer will offer Terramac's full line of straight frame and 360-degree rotating crawler carriers to serve a variety of industries, including utility, environmental, mining, pipeline and general construction. Also available will be Terramac's three standard options: conversion beds, rock dump beds and flatbeds. Customized units also support attachments such as digger derricks, aerial lifts, hydroseeding units, personnel carriers and service cranes. 

“Terramac is a natural fit with the current equipment offerings of these dealerships." says Matt Slater, Terramac's vice president of business development. "Adding Terramac’s versatile product line will not only allow Rish, Alta and Romco to further support their existing customers, but it will also provide an opportunity to expand into other markets."

Titan Machinery sees 26% increase in Q1 equipment sales

Titan Machinery says it saw a 26% increase in equipment sales and a 10% increase in its combined parts and service business compared to the first quarter in 2020. 

The company's agriculture segment saw a pre-tax income growth of 82% and its construction segment "generated solid top-line growth," says David Meyer, Titan Machinery chairman and CEO. 

Equipment sales were $276 million in Q1 compared with $218.5 million last year; parts sales were $62.6 million compared with 56.6 million last year.

For the company's construction segment, Q1 revenue was $68.6 million compared to $60.1 million for the same period last year. Increased equipment sales were partially offset by lower rental income, says the company. 

The company previously said it expected its construction segment to be down 0% to 5% this fiscal year; it has now adjusted that upward to an increase of 2% to 7%.
