Vantage Equipment Takes on Volvo Road Machinery Lineup

Fri February 01, 2008 - Northeast Edition

Vantage Equipment LLC, the authorized Volvo Construction Equipment (Volvo CE) dealer in New York, has reached an agreement with Volvo CE to assume the sales and marketing of Volvo road machinery products effective Jan. 1, 2008.

Volvo CE acquired the road machinery division of Ingersoll Rand in April 2007. The acquired product line includes soil and asphalt compaction, Blaw-Knox paving, milling and road maintenance equipment.

Vantage Equipment currently operates three full sales, marketing and service branches in Upstate New York — in Syracuse, Batavia, and Albany. The company will begin adding the road machinery products to its inventories in its market area immediately to provide uninterrupted and complete service to road machinery customers.

Vantage also is fully equipped to provide complete parts and service support; all warranties will be honored.

“This is a very significant move for Vantage Equipment,” said John Hession, president. “The addition of Volvo Road Machinery to our already strong product line is a natural fit with our customer base. We have many years of experience with paving, compaction, and road building equipment and we look forward to providing our customers with the highest level of service and support.”
