LBX Celebrates 150 Years of Link-Belt

Celebration took place at the company's facility in Kentucky.

LBX celebrated 150 years of the Link-Belt brand with a special event at the Customer Experience Center in Lexington, Kentucky. 

Since its founding in 1874, Link-Belt has grown from its inventions of a “linked belt” chain drive, crawler-mounted crane shovels, and wheel-mounted excavators

Over the past 25 years, Link-Belt Excavator Company and its parent company, Sumitomo, have introduced a lineup of equipment encompassing six product series: Quantum, LX, X2, X3, X4, and the recently launched X4S

“We at LBX are proud of our Link-Belt heritage and are honored to be part of a legacy that spans 150 years,” said Eric Sauvage, president and CEO, in a statement. “We shape our future together with our employees and our business partners, guided by our Long-Term Strategic Framework.”
