When Hurricane Michael slammed the Gulf Coast earlier this month, it left an unprecedented trail of destruction that will cost millions of dollars and months, if not years, of effort to repair. In the aftermath of the first Category 4 hurricane to strike the Florida Panhandle since record keeping began in 1851, equipment dealers faced the twin challenge of supplying dozers and excavators for government cleanup efforts while at the same time recovering from the damage to their own businesses.

In a notoriously up and down, cyclical industry, you better be good at what you do and you better have a good business plan. Beard Equipment, like every other business in the oil-rich areas of West Texas, rides the roller coaster that is the oil market.

KCM Corporation announces that Beard Equipment Co. will now represent Kawasaki-KCM wheel loaders in the Permian Basin area of Texas, and in southeast New Mexico. Beard Equipment Co. has served the state of Texas and southeastern New Mexico since 2006 focusing primarily on the oil and gas industry.

KOBELCO Construction Machinery USA continues to expand representation in the North American market by adding Beard Equipment to its growing dealer network. Beard Equipment will represent the full line of KOBELCO excavators in West Central Texas. “As a reputable excavator manufacturer, KOBELCO is known for top quality machinery,” says Jeff Beard, Owner of Beard Equipment.
