Anthony LaFata developed the A&D Equipment division as a direct result of his experience with MB products. He has held numerous demolition demonstrations in New Haven and elsewhere around the state.

A&D Equipment Dealer of New Haven, CT recently came on board as a dealer for MB America, Inc. MB was first worldwide to produce a line of jaw-crushing attachments for excavators. In 2010, MB opened U.S. offices (in Reno, NV) and began introducing the equipment in America.

A&D Equipment Dealer is a division of Lafata & Son, Inc. The LaFata name has been part of the Connecticut business world since the 1950’s, with business ventures involving commercial and residential landscaping. Both A&D and LaFata & Son’s service area is well established, along the Connecticut shoreline and numerous town and cities inland.

In 1976, Salvatore Lafata added excavating into his company’s capabilities. During the early 1980’s, Salvatore’s Son, Anthony, expanded commercial production and added recycling. To increase profits, Anthony started serious consideration of an MB crushing attachment. By 2006, a BF70 joined the LaFata equipment fleet. Now, they have everything needed to handle a full range of projects – simple residential to complex commercial. Anthony LaFata developed the A&D Equipment division as a direct result of his experience with MB products. He has held numerous demolition demonstrations in New Haven and elsewhere around the state.

LaFata emphasized, “Many companies just have a ’get in and out fast’ attitude. At the end of the day it’s not only about a quality job, done in timely manner. I also care about what’s left on the table for my company. Now, with the BF70, everything is on site. I can crush and recycle right on the spot. Projects move more efficiently, so we see better profits.”

In addition to the BF70 enhancing job site efficiency, Anthony is very pleased with the savings on fuel costs. “With the price of fuel and the cost of dumping it is harder to be competitive. The BF70 gives me back that edge.”

LaFata will be offering all four models of the crusher and three screeners. He is willing to discuss rental terms for combinations of excavators and MB products for long, or short term.
