Whayne Supply Company, a Louisville headquartered Caterpillar dealer, has merged with Boyd Company LLC, a limited liability corporation wholly owned by Monty L. Boyd. The merger of ownership became effective on Dec. 31.

Monty L. Boyd has been employed with Whayne for 24 years. He is currently serving as president and will remain in that capacity along with his recent appointment as chairman of the board. Whayne will continue as the Caterpillar dealer for Kentucky and Southern Indiana just as it has been. Boyd said he intends to operate the company under the Whayne name with the same employees, products and facilities.

“We are expending every effort to make this merger transparent to our employees and through our daily operations provide the highest level of quality service, parts and equipment that our customers have learned to expect,” Boyd said. “We look forward to continuing and expanding our existing relationships with our customers and suppliers with the same individual employees they are used to dealing with and are accustomed to seeing. Our commitment is to continue to be the best equipment dealer we can.”
