January 8, 2009 (San Diego, CA)
As you have probably heard, Mathews Machinery in CA has merged its operations with those of Volvo's company-owned dealership, Volvo Construction Equipment & Services (VCES). The two Volvo dealers have come together to better serve their customers in California by increasing the strength of their distribution and leveraging the outstanding customer service that both companies have always offered. Previously VCES and Mathews each had a facility located in the San Diego area. Now, they will be moving from their old locations into a larger, state-of-the art facility outside of San Diego in Lakeside, CA. Their new location will allow them to enhance the service they provide their customers by providing:
ü Larger branch (the combined sq footage is now doubled to 25,000 sq ft)
ü Easier access to the branch (located directly off the 67 freeway)
ü An indoor showroom to fully display the features & benefits of equipment
ü Fully-stocked inventory to provide the customer with a one-stop shop
ü More service trucks
ü Bigger parts, sales & service staff
The new branch location is fully operational to fulfill your sales, rentals, parts, and service needs at:
12345 Mapleview Street
Lakeside, CA 92040
There will now be eight strategically placed VCES branches across the state of California; Los Angeles, San Diego, the San Franciscobay area, Fresno, Livermore, Bakersfield, Corona and Sacramento.
Phillip Ransom, branch manager for VCES in San Diego, is excited about Mathews becoming part of the VCES family and the move into the new Lakeside facility. "In my 4 years with Mathews, I have been proud of the high level of customer service that we've provided to our customers. By teaming up with VCES, we will be able to offer our customers more service coverage and a deeper product offering. Their philosophy of treating every customer to a unique customer experience fits great with ours. The larger new facility in Lakeside shows our customers that we are committed to taking care of them for the long haul."
Mathews Machinery Inc. has provided equipment and services to aggregate, demolition, recycling, agriculture, road construction and civil engineering customers and will continue to serve these markets under the VCES name. Additionally, Mathews brings several brand names to Volvo Construction Equipment & Services making VCES the exclusive California dealer for Stanley LaBounty attachments, Dressta crawler dozers, and Champion motor graders.
Volvo Construction Equipment & Services has been a construction equipment dealer for nearly 50 years, offering equipment, parts, service, and rental opportunities. When VCES was acquired by Volvo CE in 2007, they became a Volvo compact & road machinery dealer and changed their name to reflect their newly expanded product line. Now that Mathews has joined VCES, the VCES product offering in California includes the full Volvo product line: wheel loaders, articulated haulers, motor graders, Blaw-Knox pavers, compactors, compact equipment and excavators. VCES is still an authorized Doosan dealer for the Ingersoll-Rand branded portable power products, such as generators, air compressors, and light towers. VCES now serves the country with 20 branch locations nationally.
