Alex Lyon & Son held a complete liquidation sale of Black Diamond Group Inc.'s inventory on Jan. 23. Multiple manufacturers were represented at the sale, including Caterpillar, Bomag, Towmaster, Case, Lull and many more. Equipment from these manufacturers included asphalt pavers, asphalt rollers, skid steers, motorgraders and more.

Black Diamond has been serving southeast Wisconsin since 1959. Founded by Raymond Teglia and headquartered in Oak Creek, Wis., the company was one of Wisconsin's most trusted commercial asphalt paving companies and has been involved with multiple noteworthy paving and parking lot projects in the community. The company partnered with Make-A-Wish Wisconsin with its “Paving the Way to Brighter Tomorrows” campaign and represented the company's gratefulness and willingness to serve others. After 57 years, Deb Teglia, president and owner of Black Diamond Group Inc., has decided to retire. “I am very pleased that we had such a great January day for our equipment auction. We had a wonderful turnout and we are pleased with the results,” said Teglia.
