The Hlavinka Equipment Company, headquartered in East Bernard, Texas, will be opening a new division, Hlavinka JCB, in Victoria, Texas. Founded in 1939 as Boettcher-Hlavinka Co., the company currently has 156 employees spread throughout eight locations on the Texas coastal plains, including East Bernard, Rosenberg, Nome, El Campo, Bay City, Taft, Victoria and Angleton.

Hlavinka’s JCB division in Victoria, Texas, will sell both new and used JCB agricultural and construction equipment, including skid steers and compact track loaders with side-entry door. Hlavinka also will provide equipment rental, service, support and financing.

“We’re very excited to begin offering JCB’s quality equipment to our customers,” said Terry Hlavinka, general manager of The Hlavinka Equipment Company. “We’ve always strived to provide quality products and service, and by opening this new JCB division in Victoria, we’re better positioned to give our customers in both the construction and agricultural equipment markets the solutions they need.”

Hlavinka JCB in Victoria will feature JCB-trained construction and ag equipment parts and service personnel, as well as a JCB operations manager.

“We’re very pleased to join forces with such a well-established, family-owned organization with a loyal customer base,” said Dan Schmidt, JCB North America’s vice president of agriculture. “Hlavinka’s 75-plus years in the southeastern Texas market shows the company’s dedication to serving the people of this area, and we look forward to a long and prosperous relationship in the years ahead.”
