Carlson Paving Products Inc. has announced Linder Industrial Machinery Company as the exclusive distributor of the CP-line of commercial pavers for the state of Florida, excluding the panhandle. Carlson's full line of commercial platforms, parts and service will be offered through Linder's seven branch locations throughout the state.

“We are proud to partner with Linder Industrial Machinery Company and are excited for the bright future this relationship paves the way for,” said Chris Colwell, president of Carlson Paving Products Inc.

“Linder's core focuses of customer service and commitment to the needs of contractors aligns closely with our philosophy and brand identity. As a leading road building equipment dealer with the deep knowledge of the industry, we are excited to partner with Linder in bringing the industry's leading commercial paver platforms to contractors across the Sunshine State.”

Representing high quality brands including Komatsu, the Wirtgen Group, and Etnyre, Linder sets high standards to ensure the highest quality machinery is offered to the customer. The company has continued to be recognized for its customer-centric focus and leading support to the contractor throughout Florida and the southeast United States.

“After visiting the factory and observing the manufacturing process, it was clear to me that Carlson has a definite advantage over the competition,” said John Coughlin, CEO of Linder. “Our customers will experience longer life as Carlson builds these units to last. The quality and safety culture I observed is very evident in the products they produce. The Carlson products line up perfectly in Linder's offering to bring our customers the highest quality and most productive machines available,” Coughlin said.

Chris Wilkes, Linder's executive vice president, echoed the optimism of Colwell and Coughlin.

“Linder has always strived to align themselves with manufacturers that build the highest quality products offered in our industry.

“After visiting with Carlson and seeing their pavers it was clear this was the perfect choice for Linder. The quality of engineering, attention to safety and people supporting the product that Carlson has in place gave me all the confidence that this paver is going to be well accepted by our customers. I am looking forward to representing this product in the Florida market.”

An industry leader in asphalt paving equipment for more than three decades, Carlson's commercial-class paver platforms have quickly become the contractor's choice for longer lifecycle, greater operator focus and unmatched mat quality. Now offering a full line of four separate platforms, ranging from the high production, economical CP75 II to the class redefining CP130, Carlson's commercial pavers are offered through a leading network of dealers across the United States and Canada.
