Ingersoll-Rand (IR) has expanded its dealership network with the addition of Ingersoll-Rand Equipment & Services in Clarks Summit, PA, as a new utility products dealer providing more IR solutions to customers in the area.

“We have taken on the utility products in order to give our customers a broader product offering,” said Bev Hodgins, vice president and branch manager of Ingersoll-Rand Equipment & Services Clarks Summit. “Taking on this product group allows us to be a one-stop shop for our construction customers.”

Ingersoll-Rand Clarks Summit provides the following utility products in its territory representation: loader backhoes; small air compressors, up to 425 cfm; light towers; small generators, up to 70 kVA; small asphalt and soil compactors, up to 7 ton; light compaction equipment; and concrete equipment.

Ingersoll-Rand Clarks Summit is an IR utility distributor in addition to the company’s current responsibilities.

“These products have been well-received by our customers,” said Hodgins. “We had already been carrying the IR small compressor and compactor lines and bringing on the utility products, especially the backhoe loaders, complements the smaller tools. We are now a complete supplier of IR products for our customers.”

“We are excited to announce this addition, and we welcome Ingersoll-Rand Clarks Summit to the utility dealership family,” said Jarrett Cowden, director of business development of Ingersoll-Rand. “This business is all about relationships, and to have a partner focused on your business success is always advantageous. Small- to mid-sized contractors in many instances have a unique set of needs that is sometimes much different from larger contractors.

“With this in mind, we feel that by having our IR utility distributors focused on this customer group with a sales, service, rentals and other services such as financing supported by Ingersoll-Rand Financial Services we can better support all contractors in today’s market,” said Cowden.
