Ohio Machinery Co. Acquires Magnam Truck and Equipment’s Locations in Lima
Broadview Heights, Ohio, April 30, 2019 – Ohio Machinery Co. DBA: Ohio Cat, Northern Ohio Peterbilt and Ohio AG Equipment, recently acquired the property and buildings formerly owned and operated by Magnam Truck and Equipment, situated in Lima, within Allen County, Ohio. As an authorized Caterpillar, Peterbilt and AGCO Dealer, the company sought property in this region to provide increased access for existing customers and prospects in the construction, transportation, agriculture, governmental, landscaping and specialty contractor industries. Purchased on April 10, 2019, the property includes approximately 198 acres of land situated along I-75 in Western Ohio, south of Toledo.
From Magnam Truck and Equipment: We would like to thank Lima, the Bath community, and our vendors and customers for the years of support. We had a great 20 years at this location and value the support through many phases of growth and expansion. It is our hope that Ohio Machinery Co. will have the same success and support that we did!
Ohio Cat currently operates a location in Perrysburg and another in Troy which leaves a considerable gap for servicing customers in the areas in-between. Therefore, Allen County will be an excellent location for Ohio Cat putting its new Lima location about 70 miles from the Perrysburg location and 53 miles from Troy. This will make it easier for customers in this region to buy equipment, parts and service.
The newly acquired property, located at the intersection of Interstate 75 and Bluelick Road, includes three separate operating facilities totaling approximately 42,100 square feet. The company is assembling plans for the facilities and will offer products and services from its wide range of product lines. Additionally, the available land offers tremendous opportunities for equipment demonstrations and events to be held on-site.
Lima will become Ohio Cat’s 31st location providing building construction products and also delivering Caterpillar and allied rental solutions through The Cat Rental Store.
The 11th location of Northern Ohio Peterbilt in Lima will offer truck sales, parts and service. Northern Ohio Peterbilt sells and supports heavy duty, medium duty and vocational trucks, and its parts stores carry OEM and aftermarket parts.
Ohio Ag Equipment, an authorized AGCO and CLAAS dealer, offers high quality machinery, parts and service support to the surrounding agricultural community. Lima will become its 6th dedicated location.
Ohio Machinery Co. supports the needs of local customers and businesses by offering added convenience and full service facilities through its family of businesses: Ohio Cat, The Cat Rental Store, Northern Ohio Peterbilt and Ohio Ag Equipment. Details on specific product and service offerings will be released at a later date. Facilities may open as soon as this fall and the company expects to fill many employment positions prior to opening. There will be a strong need for a variety of positions including sales personnel, service technicians, managers and general office staff.
