Volvo Construction Equipment (Volvo CE) appointed two new dealers to the company’s dealer network in the Midwest. The appointments reflect Volvo CE’s strategy to expand and strengthen its dealer network, partnering with seasoned, expert dealerships that know their markets well and can provide a best-in-class machine uptime experience to Volvo CE’s customers.
Both new dealers are taking over for Scott Van Keppel (SVK), purchasing the heavy equipment company’s assets and assuming its locations. Housby Heavy Equipment is now the new Volvo CE dealer for Iowa. The Des Moines-based company is taking over locations in Ankeny and Cedar Rapids. Meanwhile, Wise Heavy Equipment has become the new Volvo CE dealer in Nebraska, assuming SVK’s location in Omaha.
Stephen Roy, president of Volvo CE in North America, said the addition of these two new companies to Volvo CE’s dealer network reflects the company’s strategy to expand its footprint and capture market share by partnering with dealers that have deep knowledge of their local markets and have shown success in providing the high level of customer service that has long defined Volvo CE.
“Volvo CE is determined to grow its footprint in North America by partnering with the best dealerships the region has to offer,” Roy explained. “Housby Heavy Equipment and Wise Heavy Equipment have a combined 84 years of experience in distribution and have shown tremendous success with Mack Trucks, another great Volvo Group company. We’re excited to launch this new phase of partnership and we know that our customers will see immediate and measurable improvements when doing business with Volvo CE.”
