Scott Equipment Company (Scott Equipment) will offer Volvo Construction Equipment (Volvo CE) products and services from its locations in Arkansas, in addition to its locations in Louisiana, Mississippi and Tennessee. The company closed an agreement with Little Rock, Ark.,-based Hugg & Hall Equipment Company (Hugg & Hall) and is taking over all Volvo CE distribution in that state.
The move will strengthen Volvo CE's presence in the Southern region of the United States through Scott Equipment's focus on a robust rental fleet of general purpose equipment, in addition to continuing to offer the full Volvo CE product line, including road machinery and the SDLG brand.
Scott Equipment has 80 years of experience with heavy-duty construction equipment and a strong reputation as an outstanding services provider. The company has represented Volvo CE since 2000.
"Scott Equipment is a seasoned partner, already well known in Arkansas, and we are pleased to extend their commitment to machine availability and customer service to this region," said Stephen Roy, Volvo CE's president of sales for the Americas. "Customers can expect the same caliber of excellent support that Hugg & Hall has given over the decades."
To ensure a smooth transition, Scott Equipment will take on Hugg & Hall employees servicing Volvo CE products and services in its four Arkansas locations — Fort Smith, Springdale, Texarkana and Little Rock.
"Scott Equipment has been operating in the state of Arkansas since 1990, representing various equipment manufacturers. The Scott family is thrilled about the opportunity to expand our Arkansas operations and offer Volvo CE's full line of products and services to the Arkansas territory," said Scott Cummins, CEO, Scott Equipment.
According to their agreements, Scott Equipment will take over all Volvo CE business from Hugg & Hall and transfer to the company its Toyota material handling equipment line for the state of Arkansas.
"We see this agreement to trade product lines as mutually beneficial to both equipment providers," said John Hugg, president, Hugg & Hall. "We have appreciated the opportunity to represent Volvo CE products in our territory for over 30 years, and consider Scott Equipment a respected peer. We will work together to make a seamless transition for both our customers and employees."
