Columbus Equipment Company recently announced it has become a full-line Takeuchi compact earthmoving equipment distributor in the state of Ohio.

Established in 1952, Columbus Equipment Company will provide complete Takeuchi sales, service, parts, and rental support from six branch locations.

Staffed with a trained and experienced sales and support team that encompasses responsibilities within all segmental construction markets, Columbus Equipment Company continually provides its customers with products and after-market support.

“We are excited to offer the Takeuchi product in Ohio,” said Tom Stivison, Columbus Equipment Company president. “Our customers depend upon our strong customer service and the superior products we provide. Because Takeuchi is an industry leader with a respected reputation, the addition of the compact equipment line will allow us to provide our customers more of what they’ve come to expect.”

Takeuchi President Clay Eubanks is equally proud of the new partnership.

“We are pleased to have Columbus Equipment Company as a strategic partner in Ohio and welcome them into the Takeuchi family. We feel our alignment will best serve both existing and future Takeuchi customers,” said Eubanks.

Takeuchi is an ISO 9001 certified manufacturer of an extensive line of compact track loaders, compact excavators, and compact wheel loaders.

Founded in 1963, Takeuchi was the first company to introduce the compact excavator to North America. The compact excavator market has become a main line product for both rental and construction/ utility companies. Takeuchi continued to lead the compact construction industry with the introduction of the first compact track loader to North America.
