ASC and Swanston Equipment agreed to realign the distribution of Volvo Construction Equipment in North Dakota and western Minnesota
Effective immediately, ASC Construction Equipment will take over heavy equipment (motor grader, articulated hauler, excavator, and wheel loader) sales and service of the Volvo brand as well as the utility product line (backhoe, compact wheel loader, compact excavator and skid steer loader) from Swanston Equipment Companies. Swanston Equipment Companies, with an extensive 77 year history in the region, will continue to offer customers the Volvo paving equipment product line which includes asphalt pavers, milling and compaction.
Volvo trained technicians on the heavy equipment as well as sales personnel will remain in place and will transition to ASC, therefore there should be no disruption on customer sales or service. ASC, one of Volvo’s largest dealers in North America, now occupies the newly opened state-of-the-art facility in Bismarck, North Dakota as well as temporarily share facilities in other key locations with Swanston.
“This agreement will allow us to focus on the distribution and support of paving machinery products to customers in this region,” said Mike Swanston, president of Swanston Equipment Companies. “We remain fully committed to the Volvo product and look forward to continue to support Volvo’s customers in the future.”
“We truly are working together with Swanston to better serve Volvo customers in the region,” said Brad Stimmel, president of ASC. “We are going to build on Swanston Equipment Companies great tradition by leveraging our experiences and resources and hope to accelerate the growth of Volvo’s success in North Dakota and western Minnesota.”
ASC looks forward to serving the Midwest and expanding its North American footprint.
