By Lindsey Anderson10 June 2019
ReadyQuip JCB is the newest addition to JCB’s North American dealer network. The new JCB dealership operates from ReadyQuip in Timmins, Ontario to sell and support JCB machines throughout eastern Ontario, including Algoma, Cochrane, Greater Sudbury and Timiskaming.
“For more than 30 years, ReadyQuip has provided customers with innovative construction machines and outstanding service and support,” said Mike Larose, vice president of ReadyQuip JCB. “As a JCB dealer, we now represent the brand that invented the backhoe loader, the telehandler and the telescopic skid steer loader. And with more JCB product innovations on the way, we’ll be equipping our customers for even greater success.”
ReadyQuip was founded in 1986 and is today a full-line construction equipment supplier. As a JCB dealer, the company offers a full range of JCB construction machines, including backhoe loaders, skid steer and compact track loaders, wheel loaders, excavators and telehandlers. In 2015, ReadyQuip invested CAD$1.5 million to expand its 10-acre head office facility in Timmins, which includes a parts and service department, seven-bay workshop and fleet of support vehicles.
“ReadyQuip has built an outstanding reputation with the customers it has served over the past three decades,” said Christian Baillie, vice president of Construction Equipment Dealer Sales for JCB North America. “We’re excited to work with the ReadyQuip team to offer the productive, reliable and innovative construction machines their customers need to compete and grow in a competitive market”
