Roadtec Announces Texas Partnership with Closner Equipment Co. Inc.
Closner Equipment has been appointed the dealer for Roadtec products for a large area of Texas. Closner has been in business for 64 years and specializes in Asphalt, Concrete, and Compaction machinery. Their focus on that very narrow market has enabled Closner to build a high-performing sales and service organization for their customers, especially those engaged in TxDot work.
Closner Equipment will be responsible for 118 Counties in Texas. Their territory includes the “IH35 Corridor” and West Texas. Major cities included are Dallas, Ft. Worth, Waco, Austin, San Antonio, Laredo, McAllen, San Angelo and Midland. Other areas of Texas, such as Houston, East Texas, El Paso and the Texas Panhandle remain the direct responsibility of Roadtec. Roadtec Cold Planers, Shuttle Buggy® MTV’s, and the new line of Soil Stabilizers will be available through Closner. Closner will also market Roadtec Pavers in North Texas.
Closner Equipment is headquartered in Schertz, Texas, and also operates a branch in Austin, Texas. Closner Equipment is led by Bennett Closner, who recently completed his term as the 2009 Chairman for the Associated Equipment Distributors. AED is an international trade association representing 1100 companies involved in the distribution, rental and support of equipment used in construction, mining, forestry, power generation, and industrial applications across the US and Canada.
Jeff Richmond, President of Roadtec, remarked “Closner is one of a select small group of dealers in the US and Canada that has the expertise, facilities, and organization to represent our line of engineered products and add value through their involvement”.
