Alta Equipment has been named Equipment World’s 2018 Big Iron Dealer of the Year!
Equipment World editors note that the division has experienced a significant turnaround within the past six years, with the group going from 12 to 310 employees and growing ten-fold. With Volvo Construction Equipment as its flagship line, Alta Equipment’s construction group now has nine locations in Michigan, Indiana and Illinois. The parent firm also includes an industrial equipment group.
Alta Equipment is providing facilities for the independent Detroit Training Center, located in downtown Detroit, which provides training in diesel mechanics, equipment operation, asbestos abatement and obtaining a commercial driver’s license.
With a same-day solution philosophy, the company says it stocks 10 to 15 percent more parts than usual and has made a commitment to provide a robust rental fleet.
Through its acquisition of Elite Heavy Equipment Services in Spring Grove, Illinois, earlier this year, Alta Equipment aims to “crack the code” in field service.
