SAVANNAH, Ga. – JCB’s North American dealer network has expanded with the addition of Black JCB, a new division of Black Equipment Co. Black JCB will now provide new and used equipment sales and rentals to the materials handling and construction industries along with 24-hour parts and service. In addition to the company’s headquarters in Evansville, Ind., Black JCB also has locations in Hopkinsville and Paducah, Ky. According to Scott Bonnell, president of Black JCB, aligning with JCB was the right fit for his organization.

“By becoming a JCB dealer, we’re expanding our product offering to both new and existing customers,” Bonnell said. “We’re impressed with JCB’s quality machines and their leadership within the global construction equipment market. As the leaders in our local market, it just makes sense for us to join forces with JCB.”

Founded by the late M.J. Black in 1956, Black JCB remains a family-owned company, now with 140 employees spread throughout its six Indiana, Kentucky, Illinois and Tennessee locations. Black JCB is the only locally-owned company in its region offering material handling equipment sales and service.  

“Our company’s focus has always been on service,” Bonnell said. “We have technical service employees on staff who have been with our company for over 30 years. As a result, our customers can rest assured that our technicians and salespeople will do whatever it takes to get them the best equipment for their needs and keep that equipment up and running for top performance and productivity.”
