LiuGong North America Continues to Expand Dealer Network in U.S.

LiuGong North America has appointed five new construction equipment dealers in the U.S. recently, expanding their ever-growing dealer network. These dealerships provide the LiuGong and Dressta brands to areas of the country that previously did not have the opportunity to put them to the test.

Malvese Equipment Company, Inc., Long Island’s oldest distributor of power equipment, now carries the LiuGong and Dressta brands. Malvese provides sales, service and parts from their locations in Hicksville and Riverhead New York.

Mechanical & Irrigation Solutions (MIS), of Yuba City, Calif., was founded in 2008 by Jas Thiara. MIS offers LiuGong machines throughout Northern California from their locations in Olivehurst, Sacramento, Redding, Chico, Yuba City, Marysville and the surrounding communities.

JPS Equipment Rental provides heavy equipment rental, now including LiuGong and Dressta machines, from their locations in Bossier City, West Monroe, Alexandria, and Gonzales in Louisiana, as well as their El Dorado, Ark., store.

Big Red, Inc., now offers LiuGong and Dressta construction equipment from their locations in Charleston, S.C., and Savannah, Ga. They also offer the LiuGong forklift and material handling line to their customers.

Rifle Equipment, LLC, of Rifle, Colo., has served the area since 2003.  The city is located roughly halfway between Aspen and Grand Junction. The dealership has represented both the LiuGong and Dressta brands since October of 2019.

LIUGONG NA WELCOMES NEW DEALER JEWELL MACHINERY

LiuGong North America, a wholly owned subsidiary of LiuGong Machinery based in Liuzhou, China, a manufacturer of heavy construction equipment announced Jewell Machinery of Rocky Mount, Virginia, has joined the LiuGong NA family of dealerships.

Founded in 2000, Jewell Machinery sells parts and machinery, and manufactures, services and rents machinery and equipment for the construction and forestry industry within a 300-mile radius of its headquarters in Rocky Mount, Virginia. The company has twice been named to Inc. 5000’s list of fastest-growing private companies in America.

Founder and President Michael Jewell said Jewell Machinery’s growth has always been driven by its commitment to meeting customer need. Although the dealer entered the forestry industry just 10 years ago, those customers represent approximately 95 percent of business today. Jewell Machinery specializes in mobile and stationary loaders and is the OEM manufacturer of self-propelled carriers for the brand.

When Jewell learned forestry customers would prefer a more convenient way to source their heavy equipment rather than deal with multiple dealerships, his search for the most suitable manufacturer led him to LiuGong NA.

“We see an exciting opportunity here,” Jewell said. “LiuGong has an extensive equipment line, really anything our customers need, from Dressta dozers to LiuGong wheel loaders, excavators and more.”

Jewell said the LiuGong machines have been well received. “We’ve had LiuGong machines here four weeks now. All it takes is getting them in the seat. Once they get behind the controls, operate the machine, they love them right away.”

The LiuGong NA product lines are made specifically for the North American market. Jewell said it makes the LiuGong machines easy to work with. “They have Cummins engines and ZF transmissions. Our service personnel are Cummins-certified, and we have the exact same ZF transmissions on the undercarriages we manufacture ourselves right here. They are just a perfect fit for us.”

Plus, Jewell said, LiuGong is “very open with what they build, not trying to hide anything.” He explained that means service personnel can perform diagnostics on the machines without the need for specialized OEM training or access to guarded, proprietary coding systems. “LiuGong doesn’t ‘overcomplicate’ its machines,” he said. “They give owners exactly what they need and nothing that they don’t want or would not use.” It simplifies operator training requirements and contributes to easier servicing.

Jewell Machinery is dedicated to serving the forestry and construction industries. In addition to being a LiuGong authorized dealer, Jewell is also an authorized Barko Hydraulics dealer. Jewell services, repairs and sells a variety of other brand-name equipment. Its facilities include a 19,000-square-foot store and new 22,000-square-foot shop with 13 service bays. Services of its 22 full-time employees include the capability to fabricate or modify equipment to specific customer requirements including the LiuGong machines, “If they need a wheel loader, for instance, with something other than a bucket, we can do that.”
