According to Jim Head, Bomag’s territory manager, the move represents a strategic progress for the manufacturer to secure solid representation in the Northeast.
"Jesco has been a longtime Bomag distributor who has delivered results for us and for their customers, and to say we are excited about them taking on the full Bomag equipment offering in a larger territory is an understatement," says John Hood, director of sales, heavy equipment for Bomag.
Jesco is now a full-line Bomag equipment distributor—from tampers and plate compactors to road building equipment and landfill compactors—for contractors in the Hudson Valley and Long Island in New York, most of Maryland, and Delaware and New Jersey.
Head adds, "Jesco is an exceptional Bomag distributor with an ownership committed to growing the company.”
He continues, "This new contract establishes them as a major asphalt house with milling machines, pavers and reclaimer/stabilizers to complement their strength on the soil side of the business. They are truly a one-stop shop for both soil and asphalt contractors operating in this region."
"Very few manufacturers have a full line of compaction equipment from small to large and none rival the breadth and reputation of Bomag," says Anthony Falzarano, Jesco’s vice president of sales. "Bomag’s line fits well with our rental marketing strategy, as we have a fleet of more than 600 rental units strong."
As a road building distributor, Jesco also offers a full line of milling machines, asphalt pavers, material transfer equipment and recycling/stabilization equipment. The contract includes recently acquired Cedarapids paving equipment and CMI RS Series of reclaimer/stabilizers.
According to Jesco, the new contract with Bomag will take advantage of its growth within the Northeast. Jesco has 10 locations—three in New Jersey, two in New York, four in Maryland and one in Delaware.
"We are excited with the new contract, honored that Bomag has mirrored our footprint expansion, and eager to take advantage of this opportunity to further partner with our customers," Falzarano says.
