JCB last week announced Yale Equipment Services as a new full line JCB dealer located in Menomonee Falls, Wis., covering the greater Milwaukee area. Yale Equipment & Services will sell and supply the full line of JCB construction equipment.
"We are very pleased to add Yale Equipment Services to our expanding distribution network," said John Patterson, chairman and CEO JCB Inc. "Cliff and his team have a great deal of industry experience and have demonstrated a strong understanding of our products. He knows what it takes to get the job done. We look forward to a long and successful relationship."
Much like JCB, Yale Equipment Services is a family-owned and operated business. The company is led by Cliff Anglewicz who is the company’s chairman and CEO. He founded the company in October of 1990 as an industrial forklift dealer. One year later, Anglewicz’s daughter Tracey Clark joined the business and today serves as president. Clark joined the company after graduating from Michigan State University 17 years ago.
“I am a sucker for learning,” Clark said. “I learn from my customers every day, and the more that I learn from them, the better I am able to serve them. They keep me engaged.”
According to Anglewicz, the timing for taking on the JCB line was perfect for Yale, after having started the company in an economic downturn and seeing many downturns come and go over the years, he said the current economic conditions presented him with what he feels is a tremendous opportunity to grow and expand the business. “We don’t participate in recessions. Let our competition participate. We drive our own success and our own growth.”
