Takeuchi Picks Up Two Key Dealers

Minnesota Truck & Tractor and Norris Sales Company to begin carrying Takeuchi excavators, skid steers, track loaders and wheel loaders.

Takeuchi-US, a manufacturer of compact construction equipment, has announced Minnesota Truck & Tractor as a new dealer, serving Mankato, MN, and surrounding areas. This full-service dealer will sell the entire Takeuchi product lineup of excavators, skid steers, track loaders and wheel loaders.

Minnesota Truck & Tractor started in 1988 as a truck and trailer repair service. In 2002, the dealership started adding premium lines of equipment. While they offer service and repair on all heavy and light trucks, the company also provides service and parts for diesel trucks, semi-trailers, and all types of construction and earthmoving equipment.

“Minnesota Truck & Tractor is a great dealer, who offers both new and used equipment as well as rental sales,” said Kim Robinson, director of sales at Takeuchi-US. “They have been around a long time and have a very knowledgeable and hard-working staff. We are looking forward to our partnership with them.”

“Takeuchi has a great offering of durable machines,” said Gary Schmit, president of Minnesota Truck & Tractor. “We pride ourselves on not only top-notch customer service, but also offering the best products. Takeuchi gives our customers even more options for the jobsite.”

Takeuchi-US has also added a new dealer on the East Coast with Norris Sales Company. This full-service dealer began operations in 1956 and now features two locations: the headquarters in Conshohocken, PA, and another branch in Sicklerville, NJ.

Norris Sales recently built a large facility in Conshohocken in July 2015, while their second location in Sicklerville has been around since 2004. The dealer will sell and service Takeuchi equipment in five counties in Pennsylvania, including Philadelphia. They will feature the entire Takeuchi lineup of excavators, skid steers, track loaders and wheel loaders.

“Norris Sales has been around for many years and has a great footprint in the areas they serve in Pennsylvania,” said Robinson. “Their staff is incredibly knowledgeable and are very good at supporting their customers. We are looking forward to working with them.”

“We pride ourselves on our premium brands and Takeuchi machines certainly fit the mold,” said Karen Zajick, president at Norris Sales. “Their equipment is high quality and many of our customers are already looking forward to buying and renting the Takeuchi machines. They round out our lineup well.”
