Doosan Infracore America has added Hamre Equipment Company of Chico, Calif., to its growing network of North American dealers.

Hamre serves Northern California including such areas as Sacramento and the Napa Valley.

“Doosan is experiencing exciting growth throughout the United States and Canada as part of our strategic development efforts,” said Chris Neville, general manager of sales and marketing of Doosan Infracore. “As we move to achieve our goal of becoming one of the world’s top heavy equipment companies, we know dealers such as this only make our company stronger.”

Hamre Equipment is run by the uncle and nephew team of Lee and Brian Hamre. While their company was founded in 1989, the family has been in the equipment business for three generations dating back to the 1920s.

As part of the third generation in the field, Brian Hamre said he sees new trends emerging today and believes that compliance with stricter emissions standards is the biggest current industry issue. Additionally, he indicated that Doosan products will help their dealership to meet those needs.

“We need cleaner burning products for our customers. Doosan is on the leading edge of complying with the government standards and has been very successful in meeting and exceeding guidelines for noise reduction and emissions reduction. Their products are an important addition to our dealership and they’ve had us really busy too.”

Doosan Infracore America services a large network of Doosan dealers in North America from its headquarters in Suwanee, Ga. Doosan Infracore America is responsible for all North American sales, service, and technical support for Doosan heavy construction equipment, compact equipment and lift trucks. The Suwanee facility features a modern service, sales and parts training center, as well as a parts distribution center that services all of the United States and Canada.
