Columbus Equipment Company held an open house event on June 4 at its Piketon, Ohio, facility to celebrate the location’s newly completed 4,500 sq. ft. shop and the expansion of the parts department.

The upgraded facility and 1,800 sq. ft. of additional parts storage space makes it possible for the dealership to offer services on a wider range of repair projects. The branch is now capable of complete machine rebuilds and more component rebuilds. The overhead cranes provide improved efficiency, greatly reducing time on repair work and translating to better value for their customers, according to the company.

Branch Manager Chester Gowen said the facility’s upgrades are a reflection of the dealership’s commitment to the southeastern Ohio market and are a part of its ongoing mission to meet and exceed its customers’ needs. The Piketon facility is situated on approximately 12 acres of land, has five service bays and is the base of operations for six sales people and seven service technicians.

Columbus Equipment Company CEO Richard Early and Cookie Stivison were on hand for a ribbon cutting ceremony which was followed by a lunch served to employees and guests at the event.

Serving Ohio’s construction, mining and environmental industries from ten branches located throughout the state, Columbus Equipment Company is an authorized dealer of Komatsu, Carlson paving products, Dynapac, Kubota, McCloskey, Morooka, Morbark, Link-Belt cranes and Takeuchi.
