Pittsburgh, PA (PRWEB) February 11, 2015
Highway Equipment today announced the acquisition of Scott-Gallaher of Roanoke, Virginia and the integration of the Scott-Gallaher team into Highway Equipment Company Mid-Atlantic. This acquisition allows Highway Equipment to provide sales, rentals, parts and service of machinery and equipment for the construction, demolition, oil & gas, mining, quarrying, logging and other industries throughout Pennsylvania, Ohio, and the Mid-Atlantic Region.
The integration of the capabilities and human resources of Scott-Gallaher into Highway Equipment Company Mid-Atlantic not only extends Highway’s service reach, but also increases their breadth of services, creating greater efficiencies and responsiveness for new and existing clients.
“We are excited to expand our footprint into this important market,” said Highway Equipment President Thomas Reynolds. “We are even more proud to add the capabilities and industry expertise of the Scott-Gallaher team to Highway. We are in sync with our focus to provide superior service for our customers. Ron Scott Sr. has earned a strong reputation throughout his 40+ years in this business and Ron Scott Jr.’s fine leadership has continued to build Scott-Gallaher. We are honored to continue this legacy of excellence.”
Scott-Gallaher, founded in 1984, conducts business throughout Virginia, the Carolinas, and Tennessee and will continue existing operations as Highway Equipment Company Mid-Atlantic. Ron Scott Jr. will lead this team as Sales and Operations Manager for Highway. “The combination of these great companies and the ability to assist our loyal customers with Highway’s resources will pay dividends,” said Scott Jr. “Highway Equipment shares the same values of service and integrity, and our customers will immediately see the benefits of this relationship.”
Family owned and operated since 1933, this acquisition creates a sixth Highway Equipment full- service sales, rental and service facility. “This was a great opportunity to grow and work with people we like and admire. It is one part of our plans for the future,” remarked Reynolds.
