McClung-Logan Equipment Company Inc., a heavy construction equipment dealer in the Mid-Atlantic region, has acquired Virginia-based White Oak Equipment Inc. The purchase will position McClung-Logan to better serve its growing customer base in Virginia with additional territory coverage, expanded product lines and compact equipment expertise.

White Oak Compact Equipment will operate as a division of McClung-Logan in its existing markets, representing the full line of Takeuchi excavators, track loaders, wheel loaders, skid steers and product attachments.

"White Oak has a strong tradition and wonderful legacy of providing compact equipment and hands-on product support solutions in Virginia for almost 50 years," said Darrin Brown, president of McClung-Logan. "This deal represents a new and exciting chapter for McClung-Logan as our combined teams and product offerings will enable us to meet the market needs across a broader footprint. Specifically, the expansion into Fredericksburg, Virginia, will help McClung-Logan better support customers in that area."

Existing McClung-Logan and White Oak locations in Manassas, Chesapeake/Suffolk and Glen Allen, Va., will merge operations in each of those respective areas. The current Fredericksburg, Va., White Oak location will become a new branch for McClung-Logan along the I-95 corridor. In addition to these four markets, McClung- Logan also is an authorized Takeuchi equipment dealer in its Winchester and Wise, Va., branches.

Tom Ficklin, co-owner, president and CEO of White Oak Equipment, will join McClung-Logan as general manager of the compact equipment division.

"This deal represents a terrific partnership of two long-standing companies that can provide exceptional compact and heavy construction products and expertise to customers in Virginia," said Ficklin. "We are energized by the opportunity and excited to be joining the McClung-Logan team."

Mark McCarty, co-owner, vice president, secretary and treasurer of White Oak Equipment will remain with the company as sales manager of the compact equipment division.

"As a family run business since 1970, we couldn't have found a better partner than McClung-Logan," said McCarty. "They are a solutions-focused equipment dealer with a reputation of treating their people the right way, which is very important to us."

The deal enables McClung-Logan to add additional personnel, resources and market-specific experience to the growing compact equipment segment. In addition to the Takeuchi line, McClung-Logan has been a Volvo Construction Equipment dealer since 1986, and represents their products in all company locations throughout Maryland, Delaware and Virginia.
