Columbus Equipment Company has opened a new, full service branch in Piketon, Ohio, replacing the Jackson Branch.

The Piketon Branch will allow the company to better serve customers in southern Ohio by offering parts, service, sales and rental.

Technicians Brian Kilgour and Bryon Carmon have been reassigned to the Piketon service department from the Columbus Branch, and they’ll be joined by two new team members — Bill Dixon and John Steinhauer.

This team combines experience and knowledge, of Komatsu and other Columbus Equipment Company lines, with new members with expertise in other brands, creating a staff more than capable of servicing all of your equipment, regardless of make or model.
