(L-R): Jason McCluer, Art De La Torre and Steve Hutchins of Scott Equipment with their recently added Atlas Copco line of drum rollers.
Scott Equipment, of Fontana, Calif., has recently added the Atlas Copco/Dynapac line of rollers to its multi-line dealership.
“In 2014 we looked at the lines we were representing, and realized that compaction equipment was the one element we were missing,” said Jason McCluer, Scott Equipment operations manager. That’s when Scott decided to take on Atlas Copco.
“It is the perfect complement to our Doosan, Kobelco and New Holland lines” he added.
With so many Dynapac rollers in use in the Southern California market, the Scott Equipment management team believed, accurately, that adding the line would also create an instant, additional revenue stream.
“It has done just that,” said McCluer. “We saw an instant, significant spike in our parts and service departments.
“Atlas Copco is a proven, established roller line with excellent opportunity for growth in this market. We’re excited about the future with them.”
Offering the line at Scott’s sister company Western Rentals also will open sales opportunities as customers experience the rollers on a rental basis.
Scott Equipment was founded in 1972 when Richard Scott Sr. opened his first heavy equipment dealership in Southern California. Today, the company remains family owned and operated led by Richard Sr.’s sons Richard Scott Jr. and Gregg Scott, and is the only New Holland, Kobelco, and Doosan dealer serving Southern California.
