KATY, Texas – June 25, 2019 – LiuGong North America, a wholly owned subsidiary of LiuGong Machinery based in Liuzhou, China, and a global leader in the manufacturing of heavy construction equipment announced that Jewell Machinery of Rocky Mount, Virginia, has joined the LiuGong NA family of dealerships.
Founded in 2000, Jewell Machinery sells parts and machinery, and manufactures, services and rents machinery and equipment for the construction and forestry industry within a 300-mile radius of its headquarters in Rocky Mount, Virginia. The company has twice been named to Inc. 5000’s list of fastest-growing private companies in America.
Founder and President Michael Jewell said Jewell Machinery’s growth has always been driven by its commitment to meeting customer need. Although the dealer entered the forestry industry just 10 years ago, those customers represent approximately 95 percent of business today.
Jewell Machinery specializes in mobile and stationary loaders and is the OEM manufacturer of self-propelled carriers for the brand.
“We see an exciting opportunity here,” Jewell said. “LiuGong has an extensive equipment line, really anything our customers need, from Dressta dozers to LiuGong wheel loaders, excavators and more.”
The LiuGong NA product lines are made specifically for the North American market, making its machines easy to work with, Jewell said. “They have Cummins engines and ZF transmissions. Our service personnel are Cummins-certified, and we have the exact same ZF transmissions on the undercarriages we manufacture ourselves right here. They are just a perfect fit for us.”
Jewell Machinery is dedicated to serving the forestry and construction industries. It is an authorized dealer of Barko forestry loaders, LiuGong forklifts, wheel loaders, excavators and skid steers, and Dressta dozers, and services, repairs and sells a variety of other brand-name equipment.
