JCB Adds Buck and Knobby Equipment to Dealer Network

April 21, 2016

Buck & Knobby Equipment, headquartered in Ottawa Lake, Michigan, is proud to be a new JCB dealer for northwest Ohio. To better serve customers, the company is building a designated JCB dealership in Holland, Ohio later this year. The new Ohio location will offer JCB’s backhoe loaders, wheel loaders, excavators, rough terrain forklifts, skid steers and compact track loaders.

On Saturday, April 23 from 10 AM to 4 PM, Northwest Ohio customers interested in learning more about JCB equipment are invited to attend Buck and Knobby Equipment’s annual open house event at the company headquarters, located at 6220 West Sterns Road in Ottawa Lake, Michigan.

Buck & Knobby Equipment was founded in 1948 by Melvin R. (Buck) Cole and Lloyd R. (Knobby) Nolfo as a small equipment company in Toledo, Ohio. As the business grew, Buck and Knobby decided to move the company to a new location in Ottawa Lake, Michigan. Today, the company remains headquartered in the same Ottawa Lake location but has expanded to include over 100 acres and multiple buildings. With the new location coming later this year, the company is excited to be back in the Toledo area.

“We are thrilled to partner with JCB and are looking forward to our upcoming event as a way to show our customers our appreciation and the many capabilities and benefits of high-quality JCB equipment,” said Gerry Maibach, Business Manager at Buck & Knobby Equipment. “JCB’s commitment to providing solutions for nearly any application and Buck & Knobby’s  unwavering dedication to our customers is a perfect blueprint for sustainable growth.”
