“Opening a larger location in Madison allows us to offer our renowned YES JCB sales, parts and service to even more customers,” Anglewicz said. “JCB offers the world’s safest skid steer with a single arm ‘Powerboom’ and unique side-door entry. Both the skid steers and JCB’s telescopic handlers with capacities up to 14,000 pounds and lift heights up to 66 feet are ideal matches for both construction and agriculture professionals throughout the Madison area.  Our new facility will allow us to better serve current customers and introduce new ones to these quality products.”

For over 15 years, YES JCB has served the Madison area from a small office on Hasse Road with eight employees. Construction on the new building will begin on Monday, May 13 with an anticipated completion date of September 1, 2013. YES JCB plans to hire at least four more people to staff the larger facility.

“Now, our customers here won’t have to travel all the way to our Milwaukee location for sales, parts and service,” Anglewicz added.  “By building this new facility, we’re making it easier and more convenient to access the many great products that JCB has to offer, as well as the excellent service YES JCB can provide.”
