Ascendum Machinery hosted an open house at its Asheville, N.C., location March 25 to introduce its new partnership with LeeBoy.

Ascendum, the largest Volvo Construction Equipment dealership in both the United States and the world, began carrying LeeBoy equipment Jan. 1 to complement its core lineup of Volvo road machinery.

The open house also showcased Ascendum's lineup of Volvo construction equipment, which includes excavators, loaders, and haulers, along with generators, air compressors and light towers from Doosan Portable Power.

Adam Wade, Ascendum's new road machinery segment manager and paving specialist, and Scott Lee, its new LeeBoy product specialist, were on hand to introduce themselves and answer customers' questions.

LeeBoy is the name behind commercial asphalt paving equipment — track and wheeled pavers, motorgraders, distributor trucks, brooms and more — designed with the paving professional in mind. Equipment operators work hard, and for all the right reasons — pride, quality, reputation, prosperity. Every day is a challenge — the weather, changing job specs, demanding customers — but the crews keep going. They expect their equipment to work as hard as they do, to be every bit as tough, productive and reliable.

Ascendum Machinery offers extensive product lines with an informed staff to support all of its customers' heavy equipment needs. Ascendum is committed to meet the expectations of its customers and provide the high level of service that their customers deserve.

In addition to providing heavy equipment solutions, Ascendum continues to offer the best product support programs for its equipment. It also maintains relationships with SDLG, Sennebogen, and Sandvik.

The Asheville open house was held in conjunction with an event held March 22 at Ascendum's Charlotte, N.C., location.
