Bomag Americas Inc. and Territory Manager Jim Head announced the appointment of Stephenson Equipment Inc. as the authorized Bomag road building equipment distributor in portions of Pennsylvania and New York.
The territory stretches from central and northeastern Pennsylvania through Philadelphia and westward to Harrisburg. In New York, Stephenson Equipment’s territory covers Syracuse to Buffalo and southward to Binghamton.
The distributor now offers asphalt contractors and municipalities throughout the territory Bomag’s line of cold milling machines, the CMI RS series of reclaimer/stabilizers and Cedarapids pavers and material transfer equipment. The agreement also includes the Bomag MPH series recyclers/stabilizers, heavy tandem vibratory and combination rollers, and pneumatic tire rollers.
“Stephenson Equipment is an asphalt house with strong ties to the public and private sectors,” said John Hood, director of sales, heavy equipment of Bomag Americas Inc. “There could not be a better choice to represent Bomag’s road building line in this territory.” Head added, “Stephenson Equipment focuses on a core set of products, and they make those products the market share leaders in their territory. They do what it takes to get the job done.”
Stephenson Equipment now carries a complete range of asphalt compaction, paving and preservation equipment. The preservation lineup features the high performance Bomag utility and half-lane milling machines with cutting widths from 11.8 to 98.4 in. (300 to 2500 mm) and the CMI RS series of reclaimer/stabilizers, offering full-depth reclamation capabilities of asphalt roads with cutting depths ranging from 16 to 20 in. (406 to 508 mm) at widths from 96 to 120 in. (2438 to 3048 mm).
For public and private paving contractors, the Cedarapids line boasts 8-ft. (2.4 m) commercial and 10-ft. (3 m) mainline paving equipment as well as material transfer devices and vehicles. Bomag also offers commercial and mainline compaction equipment to complement the pavers with drum widths ranging from 47 to 84 in. (1194 to 2134 mm). Bomag compactors can be equipped with the advanced Intelligent Compaction system, Asphalt Manager, to prevent mat over compaction.
“We are excited about our partnership with Bomag,” said Dennis Heller, president and CEO of Stephenson Equipment. “The full product line adds another dimension to our business model.”
Since 1957, Stephenson Equipment has focused on a niche offering of asphalt paving and crane equipment for its customers. Heller explained that they focus on these equipment lines, since they are the centerpiece of a project. “If a paver or crane goes down, then the whole job goes down,” he said. “We understand the importance of this equipment, realize the need for 24/7 support and effectively respond with urgency.”
From five locations located throughout the contracted Pennsylvania and New York territory, Stephenson Equipment provides equipment rental, sales, service and parts support for the entire Bomag road building line. “From rental to sales to municipal, Stephenson Equipment knows the market and the customers,” said Head. “They have fully trained technicians and will offer training for their customers.”
With previous history as a Cedarapids, CMI and Bomag distributor, Stephenson Equipment has vast experience with the product lines. Heller sees the recent addition of the CMI and Cedarapids brands to the Bomag equipment portfolio as an opportunity for the distributor. “Bomag has great compaction and milling product lines, and the Cedarapids and CMI products are making a comeback. Bomag now offers the perfect trifecta for the road building industry,” he said.
