Wed June 09, 2004 - Southeast Edition

North and South Carolina contractor and government agency needs for LeeBoy brand products are now being served by a unique combination of local Caterpillar dealerships and Arrow Equipment, based in Greensboro, NC.

A trio of Caterpillar dealers ––┬áCarolina CAT and Gregory Poole Equipment Co., both in North Carolina, and Blanchard Machinery Co. in South Carolina –– recently purchased Arrow Equipment. Arrow Equipment will be the authorized sales and support dealer in the Carolinas for Caterpillar and LeeBoy paving products. Arrow will use existing facilities of the three full-line dealers to provide parts, service and product support to LeeBoy customers.

Arrow will provide sales and service support for the complete LeeBoy brand product lineup, including asphalt pavers, motor graders, conveyor loaders, maintainers, rollers and tack tanks.

“Arrow has a solid reputation in the Carolina paving industry,” said David Reposa, LeeBoy Southern sales manager. “This partnership will enhance their ability to meet the needs of customers with LeeBoy products and provide service and support locations throughout both states.”

The Caterpillar dealerships in North and South Carolina will work with Arrow Equipment paving experts to provide Cat and LeeBoy product solutions to meet specific customer needs. “It is a great combination for customers,” Reposa added.

Blanchard Machinery Co., headquartered in West Columbia, serves South Carolina with six locations. In western North Carolina, Carolina CAT of Charlotte has four locations, and Gregory Poole Equipment Co. of Raleigh serves eastern North Carolina with four locations.

LeeBoy is located in Denver, NC.
