SALT LAKE CITY, UT _ Legacy Equipment Company recently unveiled a 16,000-foot expansion and new paint booth at its facility in Salt Lake City. "Our business levels dictated that we should make a sizable investment to better serve our client’s needs,” Legacy Equipment Company President John LeRoy said.

The addition to the existing facility includes six new service bays, a 6,000-foot part warehouse and a new paint booth.

The paint booth is headed by 35-year industry veteran Bill Bezner. To service fleet clients, the team can mix any color and is able to paint nearly any size of vehicle, as well as install long-lasting bed linings for all types of trucks.

The investment also positions Legacy to expand its already robust rebuild and refurbishment capabilities. Legacy has increased its capacity and streamlined its throughput to a new level, which translates to compressed turnaround times.

"It all comes down to the ability to serve our customers better," LeRoy said. "Legacy has involvement from purchase to maintenance to repair to rebuild — the whole life cycle of the equipment we sell. We are with the customer every step of the way."

Legacy Equipment is the leading supplier of street sweepers, sewer cleaning equipment, refuse trucks, mechanic trucks, and snow removal equipment in the Intermountain West. The company represents premier brands such as Elgin Sweeper Co., E.D. Etnyre Co., Elliott Equipment Co., Heil, Iowa Mold & Tool Co., Oshkosh, Stellar Industries, Swenson Spreader, TBEI, Wausau-Everest, and Vactor Manufacturing. The company also rents hydroexcavators, industrial vacuum trucks, sewer cleaning trucks, and other specialized equipment.

With roots that can be traced back to 1946 in the Salt Lake City, Legacy Equipment Company continues to grow, improve and scope new possibilities.

“This expansion is just more evidence to our valued clients that we’re going to be here for the long haul,” LeRoy said.

Legacy Equipment Hires Former Salt Lake County Fleet Director John Webster

SALT LAKE CITY, UT _ Legacy Equipment Company announced the recent hiring of John Webster as the organization’s general manager. Webster, a long-time fleet director for Salt Lake County, was nominated three times (2011, 2012, 2014) for the Public Sector Manager of the Year and will apply the experience he gained in county public works to providing tailor-made service at Legacy Equipment.

“With all the years I spent with the county, I know exactly what people on the client side need and want. I am so pleased to be with a company that has the resources and structure to provide that top-notch sales and service like we do here at Legacy,” said Webster, who had been a customer of the company since the mid-1990s.

Legacy Equipment is the leading supplier of street sweepers, sewer cleaning equipment, refuse trucks, mechanic trucks, and snow removal equipment in the Intermountain West. The company represents premier brands such as Elgin Sweeper Co., E.D. Etnyre Co., Elliott Equipment Co., Heil, Iowa Mold & Tool Co., Oshkosh, Stellar Industries, Swenson Spreader, TBEI, Wausau-Everest, and Vactor Manufacturing.

“We are thrilled to have someone like John to help direct the growth of Legacy Equipment at this exciting time in our company’s history. He has the background, intelligence and vision we need to help us become known as the best outfitter in the region,” Legacy Equipment Company President John LeRoy said.

As Fleet Director for Salt Lake County, Webster identified $20.2 million in excess fund balances and returned it to the county coffers. While enacting efficiencies and centralizing fleet management, Webster helped reduce the annual county operational budget by $4 million. He also received a P2 environmental award for taking the department from violation status to conditional exempt.

“I always asked myself how taxpayers would feel if they saw how their money was spent. We strived to have an effective and transparent organization. We apply the same principles here at Legacy so we can give the customer the best value and service possible by spending our time and resources in the right places,” Webster said.

The good part of moving from the public to the private sector for Webster is the drastic reduction of red tape and bureaucracy.

“I love working at Legacy because I can focus on our customers and our product and service offerings. It’s all about how to help clients do their job as well as possible,” Webster said. About Legacy Equipment
