American State Equipment, the longest standing Liebherr dealer in the United States, has renewed its dealer agreement for the full line of Liebherr earthmoving and material handling equipment in the states of Wisconsin, Minnesota and the Upper Peninsula of Michigan and expanding territory to include the entire state of Illinois for its wholly owned subsidiary Finkbiner Equipment Company.
“We are very pleased to have reached an agreement renewing our long established partnership with Liebherr Construction Equipment,” said Tim Kraut, president and chief operating officer of American State Equipment Co.
“We’re looking forward to our mutual success and the continued growth of the Liebherr brand in both our existing and new territories.
American State Equipment is a family-owned company operated by the third generation of the Kraut family. Established in Milwaukee in 1957, the dealership has served some of the largest cities in the Midwest for more than 50 years and has grown to be one of the most recognized equipment dealers in the region.
American State Equipment operates five branches in the Midwest (Milwaukee, Wausau, Little Chute, Minneapolis/St. Paul and Duluth) and owns Finkbiner Equipment Company, a subsidiary located in Chicago, Ill.
“American State Equipment’s dedication has played an important role on our journey to reach and serve our customers in the Midwest region,” said Peter Mayr, president of Liebherr Construction Equipment Co. “We look forward to continuing to grow our partnership in the years ahead.”
