Bobcat Company’s 50 Years Unleashed North American Road Tour will roll into Cincinnati as part of their celebration on wheels June 25.

The Road Tour was developed as a way to celebrate Bobcat Company’s 50th Anniversary.

The Bobcat 50 Years Unleashed North American Road Tour is a traveling exhibit that will include an overview of Bobcat history, Bobcat equipment from the last 50 years and Bobcat collectibles and memorabilia from the last half century.

As one of 23 authorized dealers in the United States and Canada selected to participate, Bobcat Enterprises’ Cincinnati Branch Manager Kimberly Trapp said they’re extremely honored and also pleased to be able to offer their customers an opportunity to join in the festivities and enter to win the Great Road Tour Giveaway.

The company will set up tents and exhibits on the 5-acre field adjacent to the facility.

Food and refreshments will be served to guests and door prizes will be awarded.

Customers will have an opportunity to try their hand at an obstacle course designed to demonstrate the manuverabilty of the Bobcat machines. There will also be activities planned for children.

President and CEO Thomas Trapp started Bobcat Enterprises in Cincinnati more than 33 years ago.

“When I started Bobcat Enterprises in 1975, I wanted to have my business reflect what I learned as both an equipment mechanic and a salesman. Customers want service…before, during and after the sale. At Bobcat Enterprises, hard work is the rule, not the exception. Together, our employees and equipment work hard to give our customers the best quality service available. I am looking forward to hosting the North American Road Tour and enjoying the day with our many friends and customers while celebrating Bobcat’s 50th Anniversary.”

The Bobcat Enterprises dealership also carries Skyjack, JLG, and BMC Broderson Cranes as well as equipment support products.
