14 Compact Equipment OCTOBER 2018 JCB North America is expanded its U.S. dealer infra- structure with a direct purchase. The company recently announced that it had acquired the West Coast dealer JCB of Southern California (SoCal) from its current owner Yale/ Chase Equipment and Service Inc. JCB North America will assume responsibility for dealership operations, including the sales and support of JCB construction equipment, to customers throughout the greater Los Angeles area and neighboring counties. The business will continue to operate under the trading name, JCB of Southern California. "The Los Angeles to San Diego corridor, including Va- lencia on the north and San Bernardino to the east, is an important market for JCB in North America," said David Hill, vice president of JCB West Coast in the press release. To ensure a seamless transition and mitigate impact to JCB customers, several members of the existing Yale/Chase team will remain with JCB of SoCal under new JCB North Ameri- ca ownership.

The objective of the partnership is long- term collaboration in key growth markets.
