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.
