Prinoth expands Western U.S. dealership network
Prinoth Crawler Carriers has three new dealer partnerships in the western part of the U.S. In early 2023 both Coastline Equipment (South California and Nevada) and Western States CAT (I.D., M.T., W.Y., O.R., and W.A.), became part of the Prinoth family. In the fall of 2023, Papé Machinery (North California, O.R., W.A., and H.I.) also joined the Prinoth Crawler Carrier group.
Coastline Equipment offers services as a dealer and will handle the sales, leasing, and servicing of Prinoth's Panther vehicles. Prinoth was initially drawn to establish a business relationship with Coastline Equipment due to its reputation in the industry.
Western States Equipment Company has a legacy of providing quality equipment and excellent service. Twenty-three years after its original inception in the early 1900s, Western States applied for and was awarded the Caterpillar dealership service area for southern Idaho. What began as four service branches has grown into a much larger organization with 17 general line and truck engine branches, and 15 Cat rental stores. They will be responsible for Idaho, Montana, Wyoming, and regions of Oregon and Washington.
Papé Machinery offers construction and forestry equipment for John Deere and currently operates just under 30 branches located in several Western U.S. states. They provide equipment in many industries including general construction, power electric, oil and gas, firefighting and rescue, and forestry and they have a substantial rental fleet for all types of equipment.
"We are extremely excited to welcome these three industry stalwart to our dealer group, " said Jody Beasley, vice president of sales for Prinoth. "With their respective footprints and driven sales organizations, we feel confident that these new relationships will enhance our Western foothold and brand presence tremendously. All threee of these companies are well-established distributors and have extensive knowledge of their dedicated markets."
