ROMCO Equipment Company, a distributor of equipment for the construction, mining and aggregate industries, acquired Conley Lott Nichols (CLN), a provider of road construction, aggregate and hydroseeding machinery, headquartered in Dallas, Texas.

“The acquisition of Conley Lott Nichols continues our commitment to growth,” said Robert Mullins, CEO of ROMCO Equipment Co. “After opening our remote oilfield location in Three Rivers, Texas, earlier this year, supporting our commitment to the oil and gas market, ROMCO now expands its services to the paving and aggregate industries.”

CLN has specialized in meeting the needs of contractors, construction materials producers and municipalities since 1936 by providing products and services throughout Texas and beyond.

On Sept. 28, 2012, ROMCO completed a transaction to purchase all assets of Conley Lott Nichols and retained almost the entire operations staff. To integrate this acquisition, it is creating new paving and aggregate divisions.

“The acquisition of our company was an all around win for all parties,” said Robert Nichols CEO of CLN. “I am especially pleased that our employees will be able to continue to serve our customers into the future. Both companies are family owned and have the same commitment to serving our customers.”

The paving division headed by Guy Brown (formerly general manager of CLN’s road building division) will include GOMACO, LeeBoy, Blaw-Knox and Volvo paving and asphalt compaction products.

FINN hydroseeders will allow ROMCO to participate from ground breaking to hydromulching the finished job.

The MPS Aggregate Division led by Donna Bossert (also formerly with CLN) will include McLanahan, Universal, Sandvik, TEREX/Finlay and Weir Minerals products and services. ROMCO carries Eagle Iron Works aggregate equipment in most of its 10 dealer locations.
