The North Carolina-based SMH Group US says it has added Kirby-Smith Machinery Inc. to its dealer network for German-made Atlas material handlers. Kirby-Smith Machinery has 12 branch locations in the Midwest and South in the United States.

“We are excited to add such a major dealer to the network,” comments Tom Hickson, general manager of the SMH Group.

Kirby-Smith was established in 1983 and carries new and used heavy construction equipment and cranes. “The addition of Atlas material handlers for our territory in Oklahoma, Kansas, Missouri and Illinois will allow us to provide additional value to existing customers and increase our opportunities to partner with port businesses and scrap processors,” says Jeff Weller, chief operating officer and executive vice president at Kirby-Smith.

Headquartered in northern Germany, Atlas has been manufacturing equipment for more than 100 years, according to SMH Group. Atlas material handlers include mobile industrial machines and industrial tracked machines, which work on applications including scrap metal, wood, bulky goods, recycling, port applications and vacuum operations.

Kirby-Smith joins a network of SMH Group US distributors in North America that also includes Linder Industrial Machinery in Florida, the Carolinas and eastern Georgia; New Millennium Rentals for New Jersey, Delaware and Maryland; ROMCO Equipment for Texas; 5-R Enterprises for northern Illinois and northwest Indiana; Cowin Equipment for Alabama and western Georgia; Chadwick-Baross for New England; and Wood’s CRW in Pennsylvania.
