Gee has assumed the operations of the previous distributor, Core Machinery (formerly known as Road Machinery, LLC), in four locations: West Sacramento, Fresno, Redding, and Santa Rosa. Gee’s territory covers Northern California, including Monterey, Kings, Tulare, and Inyo counties in the central part of the state, and all counties north to the state border.
Gee brings to the territory a management team with decades of experience in the heavy equipment industry and a multifaceted growth strategy. The company will offer the complete range of Komatsu construction products, comprehensive parts and service support, technology solutions, and a rental inventory with a variety of allied products.
“We’re very excited to partner with Komatsu as their newest distributor in Northern California," said Ryan Gee, Distributor Principal at Gee Heavy Machinery. "We look forward to bringing our track record of success and innovation in the automotive industry to the heavy equipment market."
“We are confident that Gee will be a great distribution partner for our Komatsu construction equipment in the region,” said Tim Tripas, Senior Vice President for Construction Equipment and Dealer Engagement at Komatsu. “Customers should expect personalized service from the experienced team at Gee, reinforcing the Komatsu focus on customer satisfaction.”
“I’d like to thank the outstanding leadership teams at Komatsu and Core Machinery for all of their support and assistance during this transition,” said Lee Vanderpool, Gee’s President and CEO. “We’re eager to begin delivering outstanding sales and service support to our customers, because their success is our success.”
