This mission has allowed us to grow from humble beginnings in southwest Virginia to our current network of over thirty locations across Virginia, West Virginia, Maryland, Delaware, and the District of Columbia. Through a team of more than 2,300 dedicated professionals, we sell and support the full line of Caterpillar equipment, engines, and electric power generation systems. However, we don’t stop with traditional parts and service support. Our intent is to be an integral partner with our customers by employing the latest technologies, data insights, and application expertise so maximum uptime and return on investment is realized. Through this partnership, we understand that every customer is unique and therefore defines their own “highest level of success.” With this in mind, there’s only one thing left to say – LET’S GET TO WORK!
