Darr Equipment LP recently announced the acquisition of the dealerships of Adobe Equipment Houston LLC, the leading material handling and construction equipment dealer for southeast Texas.

"We are excited about Darr’s expansion into the Houston market," said Darr Equipment President, Robert Engstrom. "We’re eager to continue the great legacy established by Adobe in providing best-in-class equipment and quality service to the area’s growing businesses in several market segments, including energy, transportation, distribution and construction."

The Adobe Equipment dealerships currently employs over 260 people with 6 branch locations in Houston, 1 branch in Beaumont and a recently opened branch in Lake Charles, LA. Major material handling equipment lines for Adobe include Caterpillar, Jungheinrich, Kalmar, and Nissan / UniCarriers. In addition, Adobe Equipment is a full service JCB construction equipment dealer.

Material handling equipment lines for Darr Equipment, now in its 60th year, include Caterpillar, Mitsubishi, Jungheinrich and Kalmar.

The addition of the Adobe Equipment dealerships brings Darr’s employee count to approximately 500, with 15 branches located from Tulsa, OK to Houston, TX.

"With contiguous territories, common core product lines and highly skilled and motivated personnel, Darr and Adobe are virtually a seamless fit," said Darr CEO, Steve Brooks. "Having the Adobe team on board, we are well positioned to use our strengths to actively engage in the opportunities the Houston market offers."
