Liebherr Construction Equipment Co. signs a new dealer agreement with Orion Equipment Co.
Liebherr’s most recent dealer agreement with Orion Equipment will give the company responsibility for the promotion, sales and service for the full line of Liebherr earthmoving and material handling equipment. Orion operates in the states of Washington and Oregon, covering the region’s largest metropolitan areas of Seattle and Portland.
Orion Equipment and its affiliated businesses have been an authorized dealer and distributor for more than 30 years. The company has an extensive customer portfolio operating in heavy and civil construction, logging and forestry, demolition, scrap and recycling industries combined with numerous local, state and federal governments.
Offering sales, parts, equipment rental, overhaul and repair services from two locations — Seattle and Vancouver, Wash. — Orion Equipment has a large inventory of construction machinery and parts.
“Liebherr has a strong, world-wide reputation for its construction machinery and material handling equipment and we are excited to partner with them in the Pacific Northwest,” said Jim Irish, general manager of Orion Construction.
“The breadth and depth of the product lines that Liebherr offers, coupled with their exceptional quality, makes it the partner for the unique construction, demolition and material handling needs of this region. In addition to commercial and residential construction, the Pacific Northwest also includes ports, large infrastructure projects, logging and other regionally specific industries that Liebherr equipment is designed to handle,” said Van Ruiter, president and CEO of Orion Construction.
“We are very excited for this new business relationship and look forward to working with the team at Orion Equipment. Their corporate values are similar to those of Liebherr. Their professional approach and their focus to provide excellent service are assets that Liebherr customers will benefit from,” said Peter Mayr, president of Liebherr Construction Equipment.
