In its ongoing strategy of transferring its Bucyrus distribution and support business to its authorized dealers, Caterpillar announced that Boyd Company LLC, owner of Whayne Supply and Cecil I. Walker Machinery, has acquired the business for their territories.
Whayne Supply and Walker Machinery are authorized Cat dealers in Kentucky, southern Indiana, southeastern Ohio and portions of West Virginia. Boyd Company LLC has established Whayne-Walker Underground Mining as the business unit to meet the distribution and support needs for these new products.
“We have been working closely with Caterpillar for several months to make this transition a success” said Monty Boyd, owner and CEO of Boyd Company LLC. “This new business unit will be integrated into our current Whayne and Walker operations. We look forward to providing these new mining products and support in our area.”
